112th army navy game


How do you know the college football regular season is over? Army and Navy play.

The annual battle moves to FedEx Stadium this year, on CBS Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
[1:30 p.m. CST]

It hasn’t been a great gridiron year for either team – no bowl trips like in 2010. But over 100 years of history permeates the matchup, which will make its first trip to the Nation’s Capital. ~ source

Navy beats Army for 10th time in a row
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) – Make it 10 in a row for Navy over Army.
Kriss Proctor ran for 97 yards and two touchdowns Saturday as the Midshipmen prevailed 27-21 in the 112th Army-Navy game.
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were on hand, diplomatically cheering both sides at the Washington Redskins stadium.
It was the first time the rivalry game has been played in the vicinity of the nation's capital.
BOX SCORE: Navy 27, Army 21
It was also the tightest Army-Navy game in years. Navy had won every game since 2002 by at least dozen points.
