Skydivers parachuting into college football stadiums on Saturday afternoon have become almost a weekly occurrence, but Western Kentucky took the parachute entrance game and flipped it completely on it's head this past Saturday.
WKU's president Gary Ransdell dropped into the Hilltopper's game against the Army Black Knights from 13,500 feet prior to kickoff.
It’s always quite impressive whenever the Army Black Knights football team plays at home or at a neutral site. There’s usually a lot of pomp and circumstance.
Their visit to Yankee Stadium to take on the UConn Huskies was no different.
Here’s a look at the atmosphere at Yankee Stadium during the Army-UConn football game on November 8, 2014.
When it comes to football most college fans do not pay a lot of attention to Army until the end of the season when they play Navy. They aren't in the national title hunt, a conference title battle, and will not go to a bowl game this year--but that doesn't mean we will never see these guys play some great football!Allow me to present exhibit A:via RedditRead more »
Few rivalries in college football feature the history and the prestige of Army vs. Navy. The two schools have met on the gridiron 114 times, and have played each other every year since 1930. While this rivalry has seen just about everything, this year’s game will feature something that has never happened before.
Today, it was announced that ESPN’s College GameDay will broadcast...
The Army Black Knights will be like no other football team the UConn Huskies have played this year.
Sure UConn has faced running quarterbacks in their games against BYU and Boise State earlier this season. But they haven’t faced an offense like the one Army uses since the 2011 season, the dreaded triple-option.
UConn head coach Bob Diaco has more experience against the triple-option...
During his pregame press conference for the game against the Army Black Knights at Yankee Stadium, UConn Huskies football coach Bob Diaco had perhaps his best quote of the season so far.
Watch and listen below:
It might seem strange to be reading an article about a two-win team and how they are definitely going to win a game, but that is where we are with the UConn Huskies as they head into Saturday’s meeting with Army at Yankee Stadium.

While this will be the first time the UConn Huskies will play football at Yankee Stadium when they play the Army Black Knights this Saturday, it won’t be the first rodeo for Army at the Cathedral of Baseball.
Watch below and take a look at the history of Army Football at Yankee Stadium.

How do you tell an eight-year-old not to score a touchdown after you've been coaching him to take it to the house every chance you get all season?Well, unfortunately for Brooke Burdett, head coach of the Lawrenceville (Ga.) Black Knights, one little player's touchdown will cost him $500 and a week-long suspension. The play in question occurred with the Black Knights leading...
There is absurd. There is crazy, and than there is freaking nuts. This story about a pee wee team--the Lawrenceville Black Knights in Georgia--being fined $500 for accidentally running up the score is all of the above.via WGCL-TVRead more »
Army football is no stranger to awesome new uniforms, and it ramping things up to another level with the newest look that was tweeted out tonight. The Black Knights have a new black jersey with desert-colored camouflage numbers, and “Duty, Honor, Country” on the nameplates.

Stephon Curry was challenged to a 3-point shooting contest by Kelsey Minato, a junior point guard on the Army women’s basketball team. Despite leading the Black Knights in scoring average and 3-pointers made last season, the matchup appeared to be a tad unfair. While the concept appeared interesting it proved to be closer than expected, this shooting contest was extremely uneventful...
Army coach Dave Magarity knows his team was lucky.
None of the Black Knights were seriously hurt when their bus was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer on the way back to their hotel before a game against Lehigh on Wednesday afternoon.
''We were really fortunate,'' Magarity told The Associated Press in a phone conversation Wednesday night. ''I think I got the...

When Jeff Monken arrived for his interview during Army's coaching search, he brought with him impressive credentials, an offensive mindset, and a driven determination.
He also knew exactly what to say and when to say it.
''What you will find with Jeff is that there aren't a whole lot of details that he doesn't already know the answer to,'' Black Knights...

Only one game was on Saturday. It wasn't the best played game of the season. Nor is it going to factor into the bowl game picture or the national championship. More than likely no one is going to be in camp for NFL teams, and even if they do get invited they have a service commitment that will make playing NFL ball kind of hard--if they make the team.However, it was the 114th...
Saturday will see the 114th edition of the Army/Navy game being played, or as I like to see it--the most respected football game of the year. Yeah, I know that it doesn't have any future NFL stars, Heisman winners, or social media darlings. What it does have is something so much better--Men that are playing for the love of the game and when they are done will be putting their...

Army and Navy are once again going with special uniforms for their rivalry matchup in 2013. Nike set them up nicely this year, even though Navy’s uniforms are quite similar to last years and the helmets are the exact same. Personally, the helmet should be their full-time helmet because it is that awesome; definitely no reason not to use it again. Army’s jerseys, as per...
