When Navy makes its fourth consecutive postseason appearance Saturday in the Meineke Car Care Bowl against Boston College, the school in one sense cannot lose.

The academy expects to reap a seven-figure payday, due in part to its ability to sell more than 20,000 tickets to the event and to its status as an independent school that is not required to share the wealth with members of a conference.
