President Trump was in attendance, the first Army-Navy game he has been at as president. Trump officiated the pre-game coin toss.


ESPN’s College Gameday was also in attendance, with Lee Corso using iconic headgear to make his pick.

This season’s game was played in Philadelphia. The Army-Navy game is usually played in the “city of brotherly love,” but occasionally rotates to other big cities such as Baltimore and New York.

Navy finished the season with a record of 3-10, while nationally-ranked Army improved to 10-2 and will play Houston in the Armed Forces Bowl on December 22.
