The 21-21 tie in 1926 is generally acknowledged as the best game in the Army-Navy series. A rundown on what are arguably the best five of the 90 games played:
* 1926, Chicago: Army 21, Navy 21 -- Before 110,000 in Soldier Field, the largest crowd ever to watch a college football game, unbeaten Navy claimed the national championship by tying once-beaten (by Notre Dame) Army. The Middies took a 14-0 lead, but the Cadets, with Lighthorse Harry Wilson and Chris Cagle leading the charge, surged ahead in the third quarter, 21-14. At dusk, with the field framed by piles of snow, Alan Shapley scored untouched on a reverse on fourth-and-three from Army's 8-yard line. Tom Hamilton, later to become Navy's coach, dropkicked his third extra point of the day for the tie.
* 1946, Philadelphia: Army 21, Navy 18 -- Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard concluded their college football careers before a gathering of 102,000. The game climaxed three years of invincibility for Army, which had won the national championship the previous two years and finished second to Notre Dame in '46. Navy, which entered the game with seven straight defeats, trailed at halftime, 21-6, as Blanchard and Davis accounted for all three Cadet TDs. The Middies drew within 21-18 and had a fourth down on Army's 3-yard line when time ran out.
