Whenever the debate about college football’s best rivalry comes up, fans are always quick to point out matchups like Ohio State-Michigan, Auburn-Alabama, South Carolina-Clemson and games like that.
However, in terms of sheer honor, tradition and history, nothing beats Army-Navy.
Of course for all that honor and tradition, there are certain things that have changed through the years, including the uniforms that both teams will wear when they take the field Saturday.

''He said, `I'm not going to say anything negative about your son, but you need to put him up with the older kids in tackle football because he'...
After a three-week break from action, the Midshipmen take on the Black Knights in the annual Army-Navy Classic. Navy has won the last ten games in the series but this game has an interesting twist not seen since 2005. Navy faces an Army opponent that has scored 30 points or more six times including a 41-21 win over Air Force in the first week of November.
The Army Black Knights (2-9) and Navy Midshipmen (7-4) will meet at Lincoln Field in Philadelphia on Saturday for the 113th time in college football's greatest rivalry game. For the first time since 2005 the two teams will battle for the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. Army has endured a frustrating and disappointing two win campaign.
