On Saturday at 3 p.m. ET, for the 124th time, Army will clash with Navy on the football field.

This classic rivalry — often called America’s game — will bring a full year of bragging rights for the victor.

And each Midshipman and Cadet has a story.

In an era of booster collectives and transfer portals, the nation’s two oldest service academies will line up their triple-option offenses at the home of the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass., for a day full of pageantry, tradition and a deeply rooted respect that comes with one of college football’s fiercest rivalries.

Army hopes to follow its upset of then-No. 17 Air Force last month and claim the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy.

The game will air on CBS-TV and stream on Paramount+.
