This is the 118th Army-Navy Game and the Midshipmen lead the all-time series, 60-50-7. Last season, the Black Knights snapped Navy's 14-game winning streak in the matchup with a 21-17 win. In addition, for the first time since 2012, the winner of the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy will be decided in this game. The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy is presented annually to the Division I service academy with the best record in the round-robin competition. Last year, Air Force claimed the title and had an opportunity to retain it, despite their 48-45 loss to Navy in October. But after Army's 27-0 sweep over the Falcons on Nov. 4, the trophy is back up for grabs. The Midshipmen held the prestigious award just two years ago, but the Black Knights are looking for their first CIC trophy since 1996. The current CIC record is Air Force 20, Navy 15, and Army 6.
