WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) — Army has accepted a bid to play in the Independence Bowl, becoming the first team in the country to gain a spot in the postseason.

West Point announced the bid after the Black Knights beat Mercer to improve to 6-1. The Black Knights are slated to face a Pac-12 Conference foe in the Shreveport, Louisiana, bowl game. The Pac-12 begins its truncated season Nov. 7.

The date of the Independence Bowl will be announced later.
