Army is back in play this week after a bye, and we also get our first Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy matchup of the season as Navy travels to Air Force.
Air Force was not able to win the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy outright last year. The academies shared the trophy after splitting the three-way competition. However, the one thing Air Force was able to do: Beat Navy.
The Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy series is here. Game 1 of the three-game service academy football feast is upon us. Navy makes the trek to Colorado Springs for some breakfast football on Saturday morning.
Head coach Ken Niumatalolo and players, Vincent Terrell Jr., Eavan Gibbons, and Tai Lavatai spoke to the media following the Mids’ 23-20 win over East Carolina. The victory improved Navy’s record to 1-2.
The Wyoming hoodoo continues to ruin Air Force whenever the Falcons travel north to Laramie. It was better news for Army, however, with the Black Knights picking up a first win of the season.
It is a difficult time to be a Navy football player or coach. For the third straight season, the Midshipmen’s offense has started very poorly in the month of September.
It was another dud of a home opener for Navy this past weekend against the Delaware Blue Hens. For the third straight season, Navy opened its season at home and failed to score eight points.
Navy fell to Delaware 14-7 on Saturday in Annapolis. After the game, Mid’s head coach Ken Niumatalolo discussed the loss to the media.
