This game has to be considered a tradition. Once a year, the whole nation gets to see two teams filled with men who fight for and honor our country each and every day.
In a game that is bigger than football, it puts brothers against brothers, with football being the sport that separates them for 60 minutes a year. After graduation, these men will be on the same battle field together.
Many great events take place during this game. One of the best is the prisoner exchange. During their junior year, certain Mids and Cadets are selected to spend a semester “behind enemy lines”. Come game day, each “prisoner” is returned to their side, and reunited with their peers.
However, the best scene is when the clock strikes zero, and both teams join each other for the singing of each team’s alma mater. Truly, one of the best sites in sports.
Each college football fan needs to make it to this game one day. The experience will never be forgotten, as you see Navy and Army clash helmets in one of the oldest rivalries in college football.
