Army 13, Navy 17: Final

Navy got to have their anthem played last. They win the 11th straight year in one of college football's oldest rivalries. Army went down in one of the hardest fought games that has been played this season.

Keenan Reynolds and Trent Steelman had a triple option quarterback duel for the ages as both offenses gained over 275 yards. In the end, Reynolds was just better today as his ability to both pass and run set up a touchdown with just four and a half minutes left.

The heavy amount of turnovers and well played defense contributed to the victory. But the play that truly set it apart was the fumble at the end by Steelman that gave the ball to the Mids with just one minute left and no timeouts. 

A ton of respect and love goes out to both teams, however. Because at the end of the day, they both represented what is great with American football. The drive, determination and heart shown on both sides of the field showed that every player on that field deserved to be out there.
