On Saturday, it is the biggest college football game of the year for two schools. These schools take their rivalry very seriously.

While other teams do too, nothing compares to the Army and Navy rivalry. They know that everyone in this game are sacrificing to make the whole country better. This game will be broadcasted on CBS at 3 pm from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD.

The #25 Midshipmen are 9-3 this season. They’re coming off of a loss to the Temple Owls last Saturday in the American Athletic Conference.

It will be the first-time in 75 years that Navy did not have a bye before this game.

The Black Knights are 6-5 this season. Army hasn’t played since Nov. 19 when they defeated the Morgan State Bears 60-3.

After winning three straight to begin the season, they are 3-5. But they’ll be fighting for their brother Brandon Jackson, who lost his life on Sept. 11, who died in a car accident.

Army hasn’t beat Navy since 2001. Since that time, they’ve lost 14 straight.

In last year’s meeting, Navy escaped with a 21-17 win.

As we mentioned before, the Midshipmen lost 34-10 to the Owls last week. They haven’t won since Nov. 26 when they defeated the SMU Mustangs 75-31.

Army also defeated Morgan State in their contest, as we also mentioned. They haven’t lost since being beaten by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 44-6 on Nov. 12.
