NAVY Beats Army, Again...

It's the same old Navy

Navy wins 110th meeting with Army, 17-3, and deny Black Knights a bowl bid

In the days leading up to the 110th playing of the Army-Navy game, the Midshipmen listened quietly as their counterparts from West Point talked about the improvements they had made, the new confidence they possessed, and the extra motivation they had with a bowl bid on the line. They saw their offense struggle in the first half and Army take a lead into the locker room.

But Navy calmly rallied in the second half for a 17-3 victory in front of 69,541 inside Lincoln Financial Field and won the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy for a record seventh straight season.

This was the eighth straight victory for Navy (9-4) over Army (5-7). Navy Coach Ken Niumatalolo became the first to win the rivalry game in each of his first two seasons; Navy's 32 seniors will graduate having never lost to a service academy team. The win prevented Army from punching its ticket to the EagleBank Bowl; UCLA will take the spot instead.
