Army vs. Navy: The Nation’s Game

December 10th is the annual Army-Navy Game, at noon in Bank Stadium, Baltimore MD. This is an American college football rivalry game between the teams of the Black Knights of the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point and the Midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy (USNA) at Annapolis and has come to embody the spirit of the  United States Armed Forces. To date, Army has won 153 times and Navy 142, including the last fourteen.
