Bobby Bowden is getting to coach one more game, on a road trip
like none he's ever experienced.

The former Florida State coach will be among a group of football
greats traveling to an undisclosed American military installation
in the Persian Gulf next month for a flag football game with
soldiers. Called the Connect to Home Bowl, it is similar to a trip
Bowden's son Tommy made to Iraq a year ago.

Bobby Bowden tells The Associated Press the invitation is "very
exciting ... because there couldn't be a better cause."

Highlights from the game will be aired during halftime of the
Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 1. The event is sponsored by Tostitos and the
USO.
