The 12th game of the year matches the Army Black Knights (Sagarin 150, 3-8) and the arch-rival Navy Midshipmen (Sagarin 62, 7-4) One of the greatest rivalries in college sports has not been much of a game the past decade as Navy has beaten Army 11 years in a row and 14 of the past 16. Navy looks to win the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy with a win and will then play in the Armed Forces Bowl.
ArmySports.com takes a look back at the historic Army-Navy series. Navy has won the last 11 meetings, most convincingly. The Black Knights will try again to end the streak on Saturday in Philadelphia.
Navy is doing what it has done for most of the past decade. That’s a good thing for the Midshipmen. Army is doing what it has done for most of the past decade. That’s not a good thing for the Black Knights. The drama of the 114th Army-Navy Game is found in Army’s quest to break “The Streak.”
Each year, the Army-Navy game transcends football, as players from both the Black Knights and Midshipmen know that they’ll soon be fighting together off the field after doing battle with one another on it.

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.

Both Army (with its Battle of the Bulge-inspired threads) and Navy (an officer-inspired look) pulled out all the stops with their rivalry game uniforms last year. This year’s look for both teams is much more tempered.
The Black Knights’ uniforms don’t differ too much from their normal threads, save for the dark gray pants and neck lining (both of which are a nice touch). The...
