Northeastern A&M accepted an invitation to play in the fourth annual Citizens Bank Bowl in Pittsburg, Kan.

NEO comes off a loss to Navarro (Texas) in the Southwest Junior College Football Conference championship game.

The bowl game will almost be a home game for NEO. Miami, OK, is only 43 miles from Pittsburg, Kan.
