Let’s be honest: these have been dark times for the Army Black Knights football program. They’re suffering through a 2-9 season and they’ve lost their annual season-ending game with Navy thirteen times in a row, last winning in 2001.
Navy has enjoyed a stellar 9-2 season, losing only to ranked teams Notre Dame and Houston. They’re ranked #21 in the FBS Championship rankings and are booked to play Pittsburgh in the Military Bowl on December 28th in their home stadium. Navy QB Keenan Reynolds had an outstanding season and came close to being a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.
Everything points to another Navy win, but an Army upset could practically ruin one of the best Navy campaigns in a long time. A Black Knight win on Saturday would be one of their sweetest ever.
The game takes place this Saturday, December 12 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. CBS will broadcast the game at 3pm.
