At 3:00 p.m. eastern today CBS will televise the 119th iteration of the Army/Navy game (or, as it was known in my house growing up, the Navy/Army game).
Navy (3-9) holds a 60-51-7 series lead, owing largely to the fourteen game winning streak run up by the Midshipmen between 2002 and 2015. The Black Knights of the Hudson (9-2) however are winners of the last two meetings. Six of the last seven matchups have been decided by a touchdown or less.
Army is the favorite behind a solid option offense that’s averaging 7.48 plays per possession, over a play per possession better than the next closest team. The Black Knights are also looking to win the commander-in-Chief’s Trophy for the second year running for the first time in the Academy’s history.
This will serve as the official Dawg Sports headquarters and open thread for a game that both concludes the college football regular season and also means a lot personally to a lot of the folks who frequent this corner of the college football internet. So whether you sing Anchors Aweigh or The Army Goes Rolling Along, we’ve got you covered. Go Army! Go Navy! And . . .
