Army West Point and Navy will clash twice in sprint football this fall, announced Army head coach LTC (R) Mark West on Friday. The first contest will be at West Point on Sunday, October 4 at 1 p.m. Then on October 18, the two foes will clash for the star in Annapolis at 1 p.m. as part of the Army-Navy Star Series, presented by USAA.
“As disappointed as we were in having our fall season postponed, the team is extremely excited and thankful that we have the opportunity to play Navy twice this fall,” West said. “Knowing these two rivalry games could very well be the only games we play this year makes them even more special, especially for our seniors.”
The last time the two teams squared off the Black Knights walked away with their 36th Collegiate Sprint Football League title, downing Navy 13-0 at Franklin Field in Philadelphia. The shutout marked Army's first over Navy since 1984.
Since the start of the 2012 season, Army owns a record of 6-4 over the Mids. During that span neither team has won more than two consecutive games. Of the 82 games that have been played in the rivalry, 37 have been decided by a single possession.
