In the history of sports, a few great rivalries stand out. Baseball has the Red Sox and Yankees. College basketball has Duke and North Carolina. One of the longest-running and most-heated rivalries in college football is the one between the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York and the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Yes, we're talking about the Army-Navy game.

America's Game, as some have come to call it, first kicked off way back in 1890, and it's been held annually since 1930. The game is often the grand finale of college football's regular season, and the winner takes home the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. Through the 2020 matchup, Navy leads the series with 61 wins to Army's 53. There have been seven ties.
