Here's what the school released Saturday morning:

Army football will wear special helmets for Saturday's Army-Navy Game presented by USAA. The helmets feature 17 different branches of the U.S. Army.

The team will also be wearing patches broken down by position and individual team members will also be wearing patches based on a special bond with that unit.

Here is the list of patches the positions will be wearing:

Quarterbacks—3rd Infantry Division
Fullbacks—4th Infantry Division
Running Backs—25th Infantry Division
Tight Ends—7th Infantry Division
Offensive Line—1st Armored Division
Wide Receivers—82nd Airborne Division
Defensive Line—1st Cavalry Division
Linebackers—10th Mountain Division
Cornerbacks—2nd Infantry Division
Safeties—101st Airborne Division
Special Teams—1st Infantry Division
