Fort Huachuca Soldiers take on Davis-Monthan AFB Airmen in 4th annual Turkey Bowl flag football game - Friday, Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. 
Fort Huachuca soldiers square off against Airmen from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base for a fun, flag football game on Bujalski Field, next to Barnes Field House on Fort Huachuca.

In 2016, the DMAFB Airmen won the trophy and took home the bragging rights. The Turkey Bowl started off as a rivalry between Military Intelligence and Signal Corps Soldiers here.  That tradition ended when the 11th Signal Brigade moved to Fort Hood, Texas.  The rivalry has now been bumped up a few notches.  Service pride is on the line.
Team Army and Team Air Force supporters are encourage to come out and cheer on their favorite team in this annual fall tradition.  Army fans are encouraged to dress in their best black and gold outfits.
