It's become all about the tradition and pageantry in this classic matchup, because the rivalry has become a bit one-sided of late. The Midshipmen of Navy have dominated, winning six in a row by a combined score of 240-71. While Navy will be headed to its sixth straight bowl game later in the month (the EagleBank Bowl on Dec. 20), Army is trying to avoid its third straight 3-9 season. — Dave Roeder
