It doesnt matter that neither Army nor Navy are in the Top 25, or that the Midshipmen have defeated the Black Knights 14 times in a row. The Army-Navy game is Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016, in Baltimore. When their football careers end, each player is obligated to begin serving in the military. Those already in battle will be represented Saturday by several men who may ultimately be by their side.

President-elect Donald Trump is partaking in one of the nation’s most storied football rivalries, saluting U.S. troops at the annual Army-Navy game on Saturday as he prepares to enter the White House. The appearance caps a week of rolling out Cabinet picks, holding ”thank you” rallies in North Carolina, Iowa and Michigan, and trying to cement his incoming Senate majority with Saturday’s runoff election in Louisiana. Trump is the first Republican to win Michigan since George H.W. Bush in 1988.
