Is NAVY Bowl Bound ?

With NAVY Football's overall record currently at 7-1 , they are Bowling again.....are they contract obligated to any certain Bowl at this time , such as the Military Bowl played at Annapolis on Dec. 27 ?

They usually do not do the Military Bowl in Annapolis. They’ll get an invite somewhere once the season ends, and match-ups that will optimize attendance and gate revenue for both teams and the bowl organization will be considered. One of my favorites in years past was the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco, always one of my favorite cities to visit. The Alumni Assn will offer packages with options for hotel, tickets, tailgater, welcome reception, swag bag, etc.

Per Navy Football:
Navy will not know which Bowl game it will go to until Bowl announcements are made 12/8/19.
The AAC has agreements with seven bowl games and secondary agreements with two others. The highest ranked champion from the AAC, Mountain West, Conference USA, Sun Belt and MAC, as voted by the College Football Playoff Committee, will play in the Cotton Bowl.

sadly any "bowl eligible" team with the requisite 6-6 record can go to a bowl, heck now they are even taking teams with only 5 wins.
As long as sponsors keep paying for teams to play in games which can’t even half fill the stadium, obscure bowl games will continue. I tune in to some of these just to get a dose of football if I have nothing else going on.
