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.
