WEST POINT, N.Y.  – With seven home games on the 2012 Army football schedule, a host of promotions and giveaways are planned.

The Army Athletic Association will giveaway Build-A-Bears and a commemorative print and honor the first women’s varsity team, former Olympians and its Hall of Fame class.

Army will open its season at San Diego State on Sept. 8 before its home opener Sept. 15 opposite Northern Illinois. A trip to Wake Forest is followed by three straight games at historic Michie Stadium, Stony Brook (Sept. 29), Boston College (Oct. 6) and Kent State (Oct. 13).

The Black Knights will play at Eastern Michigan then return home for a pair of games, against Ball State (Oct. 27) and service academy rival Air Force (Nov. 3).

Army plays its final road game of the season at Rutgers on Nov. 11 and will close its home slate against Temple on Nov. 17.

The Army-Navy Game presented by USAA will be played in Philadelphia on Dec. 8.

The Black Knights are the primary tie-in to the Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman which is scheduled for December 27 at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. If Army is bowl eligible, it will play a team from the Atlantic Coach Conference.

Season tickets are on sale with sideline seats priced at just $210. The full season ticket package represents a $40 savings off individual game prices and guarantees the opportunity to purchase the same number of tickets to the 2012 Army-Navy Game presented by USAA. The Coach E's Army (sections 5-8A) plan is available for $147. Three and four-game mini-plans are also on sale starting at $60.

Individual game prices vary from $32 for the Northern Illinois and Stony Brook games to $45 for the Air Force game. The Boston College and Kent State contests are priced at $39 per ticket, while the admission price for the Ball State and Temple games is $35. Group rates are also available. Fans that order 20-or-more tickets for a single game will receive a discounted price of $25 for all games except Air Force, which is priced at $35 for groups.

Army A Club season ticket holders have access to priority parking locations. For more information, call the Army A Club office at 845-938-2322. Single game parking passes are also available on game day for $20, or can be purchased in advance for $15 by visiting goARMYsports.com or calling the Army Ticket Office at 877-TIX-ARMY.

Army returns 14 players that started at least six games in 2011 and 34 players that started at least one game a year ago. The Black Knights welcome back their top seven rushers from last season's team that led the country in rushing yards per game, and 2012 will mark the first time in program history the Black Knights have returned two players who have rushed for 1,000 yards in a season (Jared Hassin, 2010; Raymond Maples, 2011). The Army defense returns 13 of its top 16 tacklers from 2011, including a group that combined for 15.0 of Army's 18.0 quarterback sacks.

Black Knight fans can order seats 24 hours a day at goARMYsports.com, or by calling 1-877-TIX-ARMY between the hours of 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
