In college football, it is a tradition unlike any other -- the Army/Navy game.
This afternoon, for the 123rd time, the two service academies will clash on the gridiron. And for the 90th time, the game will be played in the town of America's birth, Philadelphia.
More than 50 thousand out-of-town visitors have descended on 'Philly' for the game and they'll have an estimated $30 million economic impact on the city.
The Army–Navy game is one of the most traditional and enduring rivalries in college football. It has been frequently attended by sitting U.S. presidents. President Biden is not scheduled to attend today's game in person. The contest has been nationally televised each year since 1945. It’s been broadcast on radio since 1930.
Today's Army-Navy game will kick off just after 3 pm (EST) from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. It will air on CBS-TV.
