Maryland sold out its 10,000-ticket allotment to the Military Bowl earlier this week.
East Carolina followed suit today.
RFK Stadium's listed capacity for the Dec. 29 game is 45,423. Considering --- anecdotally, anyway --- that many fans opted to buy cheaper seats outside the school's allotment, it's likely the Military Bowl will have the largest attendance in its three-year history.
There were 28,777 at the 2008 game between Navy and Wake Forest. Last year, an announced crowd of 23,072 saw Temple and UCLA play.
