The 118th playing of the Army-Navy game was an instant classic, on and off the field. Played in a snowstorm, one could say that the Army finally found a camouflage uniform that worked the way it was supposed to. And in a year where the Army’s West Point came under a lot of scrutiny for reasons they’d rather not delve into, this was the perfect cure.
The Army held on to win for the second year in a row when Navy’s Bennett Moehring 48-yard field goal attempt veered just left in the driving snow and there was jubilation on the Army sideline. While the devastated Navy sideline saw that their epic comeback missed by just a foot or two.
