The Army-Navy Game is the greatest event in college sports, even if a certain person doesn't "know if it’s necessarily the best football." They're wrong. The contest is the only big-time clash on Saturday, so anyone who loves college game will be watching and this promises to be one of the most competitive games in years.
The 2017 Army-Navy Game takes place at 3pm on Saturday, December 9th at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field. Also on the line is the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. Both Army and Navy defeated Air Force this season, so Saturday's winner also gets the service academy trophy.
Army's on fire this season with an 8-3 record and an upcoming game with San Diego State on December 23rd in the Armed Forces Bowl. Navy has struggled to a 6-5 record but still earned an invitation play Virginia in the Military Bowl on December 28th.
Army is flying high after its 21-17 upset win over Navy last year. Navy fans console themselves by pointing out that it was Army's first win in the series since 2001 and claiming that none one will be impressed until the Black Knights win two in a row.
Who do you think wins this year? Is Navy ready to take on a much-improved Army Black Knights team? Or will the Midshipmen return to series domination after last year's upset? Sound off!
