    Navy used to dominate, but lately it’s been Army.

    I’m glad people here still mention the game. While often under appreciated, this IS one of the best rivalries there is- and for good reason. The sheer professionalism exhibited in these games is second to none, and for anybody who puts four years of their life into a Service Academy (basically an Ivy League education) while playing a sport while going onto serve later, is a tremendous task. I’m glad I did not go that route.

    I’ve posted here previously about the game. I went to the two SEC titles between 06-08 and the last national title victory in Miami. I also had the privilege of going to Army Navy in Philly in 2018. That was the most epic, professional, hairs were standing up event I’ve ever been to. No matter your affiliation for anything - POTUS came out, the chorus did the anthem, every Cadet and Midshipman was on the field previously, the flyover… and despite the sold out crowd, you could hear a pin drop. Then the game started- it was crazy. After Army won, almost nobody left, and we watched each team sing the alma matters to their respective bands.

    TLDR? Army Navy is the most epic and perhaps under appreciated rivalry game there is. Especially the experience.

    Go Army!

    Airborne.
