WHO'S IN? In DC, Paul Tenorio reports Navy "will serve as the home team this year and will be paired with a school from the [ACC], provided the teams have the .500 records necessary to be bowl-eligible." DC Sports & Entertainment Commission Stadium Manager Troy Scott said that while RFK "has not hosted a football game since '01," the stadium is "equipped to handle the game." Scott: "When we had our field resurfaced after baseball left, we made sure we had enough grass in place we could actually host a football game." Tenorio notes FedEx Field was "not considered because of its size -- it can hold just more than 90,000 people, and the committee is aiming for an attendance of around 34,000 this year" (WASHINGTON POST, 9/11).
