One of college football’s most historic rivalries return Saturday afternoon when Army and Navy meet in their annual clash this year in Philadelphia.
For the first time since 2002, Army (8-3) enters the game with a chance to form a winning streak against the Midshipmen. Navy (6-5) won each contest from 2002-15 until the Black Knights put an end to their drought in a thrilling 21-17 victory last year.
Both teams will suit up in some stellar brand-new uniforms on Saturday. Kickoff in Lincoln Financial Field is set for 3 p.m. ET. Follow below for live scoring updates and more:
College football’s annual Army vs. Navy game is one of the sport’s greatest traditions, conjuring images of cadets in uniform and hard-nosed December football. It also features some of the best custom uniforms, full stop, and the get-ups for this year’s game (Saturday, Dec. 9, 3:00 p.m.) are no exception.
Navy released its uniforms first, unleashing these crisp outfits inspired by the Blue Angels:
The design is cohesive from head to toe: the yellow and blue play off each other perfectly; the block number font is equal parts throwback and modern-day; and the helmets, with Blue Angels jets on either side and on top, is a great finishing touch.
It would be hard to top this look for any team, but in a rivalry built on one-upsmanship as much as midshipmen, Army wasn’t about to be bested that easily.
Navy football (6-5) got off to a hot start but wasn’t able to maintain for the duration of American conference play. The Midshipmen jumped out to a five-game winning streak with wins over FAU, Tulane, Cincinnati, Tulsa and Air Force. Then they ran into the buzzsaws that were Memphis and UCF and the season took a rough turn. Navy lost five of their final six games and enters their matchup with Army on a two-game losing streak.
Both senior classes have a win in the rivalry, both have solid coaching situations that should keep the production rolling, and both teams that that one extra game – for some, this won’t be the last game for the rest of their lives. There’s no crazy-intense pressure. Except that it’s Army vs. Navy – and they’re both good.
Army can win the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy for the first time since 1996 – getting by the Falcons 21-0 in early November – with a run defense that sauce down the option to a dead stop. This isn’t a killer defensive front, and it doesn’t do a while lot to get into the backfield.
The Black Knights O has to keep the undersize D off the field, ranking No. 1 in the country in third down conversions and fourth in time of possession. There’s no passing game, but with FB Andy Davidson thumping inside, and QB Ahmad Bradshaw running the machine to near perfection in his third year at the starting helm, the attack is devastating.
