There’s no tradition like “America’s Game.”

The Army-Navy football rivalry has spanned decades, including two world wars and a number of international conflicts. This year’s game is the 124th meeting between the two service academies.

For the first time, the game was played in New England. Army beat Navy, 17-11, despite a furious drive by the Midshipmen late in the fourth quarter. Read more here.
