The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl is an annual postseason college football bowl game that was inaugurated in 2003 as the Fort Worth Bowl under corporate sponsorship of PlainsCapital Bank. In 2005, the game was without corporate sponsorship. In 2006, Fort Worth based Bell Helicopter Textron took over sponsorship. The contest is one of six bowls produced by ESPN Regional Television (a/k/a ESPN Plus) and has been televised annually on ESPN since its' inception.

The game is played in the 44,008-seat Amon G. Carter Stadium on the campus of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas, featuring a team from Mountain West Conference. The bowl's partnership with the Big 12 Conference ended with the 2005 season; in 2006, the game featured a team from Conference USA against a team from the MWC, with C-USA returning in 2008. The Pac-10 would send its 6th place team to play the MWC in 2007 pending the team's bowl eligibility. The Pac-10 tie-in is also in effect in 2009.
