The 2nd Annual Medal of Honor Bowl, scheduled for January 10, 2015 at The Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium, will again have top quality players seeking a shot at professional football along with coaches that possess nationally-recognized reputations. This year's game will also have a national televised audience watching it.
Tom McQueeney, chairman of the Medal of Honor Bowl Committee and NBC Sports Group, have jointly announced the arrangement. Kickoff is set for 2:30 pm ET and will air live on NBCSN.
“The Medal of Honor Bowl committee is thrilled to have NBCSN as our telecast partner,” said Tom McQueeney, Chairman of the Medal of Honor Bowl Committee. “Being able to deliver this game to a national audience will allow us to showcase the college All-Star talent, and our tremendous community support to all of America.”
“It is imperative that our bowl game enjoys a national television audience in order to become the very best, and we're thrilled to have this partnership with NBCSN,” said McQueeney. “Having television is also critical to our effort in recruiting the very best players available.”
“We are excited to present the second annual Medal of Honor Bowl,” said Gary Quinn, Vice President, Programming, NBC Sports and NBCSN. “The game will feature some of the most talented college football players in the country, and help shine a light on two important charitable organizations.”
The Medal of Honor Bowl is a postseason college all-star game that features the nation's top draft-eligible players. In addition to the game, the week-long event will feature a player leadership conference, the Wounded Warrior Luncheon, the Medal of Honor True Blue Gala and opportunities to meet the players and future NFL stars. Other entertainment and fan experiences are in the process of being scheduled. The major portion of the game's proceeds benefit the National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation with other funds anticipated for support of local veterans and wounded warrior projects.
