It’s sixty-eight degrees today in Philadelphia, PA where the Army Black Knights and the Navy Midshipmen met for the 116th time. Televised by CBS, the Army-Navy game is the culmination of years of learning and training for the football players at their respective service academies. Navy has emerged the victor in the last thirteen consecutive games against Army. Would 2015 continue this winning streak? YES.
Just when it looked like Army would very well beat Navy, with just under three minutes left in the fourth quarter, the Midshipmen intercepted the Black Knights just a sneeze away from the end zone.
Final score. Navy 21 and Army 17.
