Army Navy Game

SPORTS

For most of the past eight seasons, the Army-Navy game seemed to carry more significance for the Black Knights than for the Midshipmen. Except for last year's game in Philadelphia, when both teams had winning records and post-season plans, this traditional end-of-season matchup was Army's bowl game. When Navy (4-7) plays Army (3-8) at FedEx Field in Landover Saturday, it will mark the first time since 2002 the Midshipmen will be playing their last game of the season. It also means Navy's 33 seniors will be playing their last college game and for nearly all of them, the last football games of their careers, as it has been for all but a few Black Knights in recent seasons.

As the college football landscape shifts toward super conferences that have washed away century-old rivalries, two schools at the bedrock of the sport's foundation remain as rigid about their continued alliance as their respective student bodies who will march into FedEx Field in Landover a week from Saturday. Army and Navy, which will play for the 112th time, believe that their annual game will survive regardless of whether the Midshipmen move into the Big East Conference in the future.

Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo inherited a potentially thankless assignment when he was hired to replace Paul Johnson, the architect of a dramatic change in fortune for a football program that had languished for decades before his appointment. Niumatalolo not only picked up where Johnson left off, but he has taken the program even further, defeating Notre Dame twice in his first three years as coach and winning the Commander in Chief's Trophy in two of those three seasons. What Niumatalolo does not do is promote himself.

Devin Jones (Old Mill) matched his season high with 21 points, helping Salisbury (4-5) end a two-game losing streak with an 86-71 men's basketball victory over Maryland Bible in the consolation game of the CNU Classic at Christopher Newport. Greg Palmer added 19 points and 10 rebounds, and Mike Maczko (John Carroll) had 10 points and 10 rebounds. College football: CBS Sports' coverage of the Army-Navy game on Saturday earned an overnight household rating/share of 4.2/10, up 75 percent from last year's 2.4/6.

Whenever he gets the chance, Army coach Rich Ellerson watches the football teams from Navy and Georgia Tech on television. He does so partly because of his long-standing friendships with those teams' coaches, Ken Niumatalolo and Paul Johnson. But Ellerson is also curious; his team, like Niumatalolo's and Johnson's, employs the triple-option offense. "We try to see what kind of answers people are coming up with [to defend it] along the way," said Ellerson, who's in his first season as Army's head coach.

G o ahead and tell me why you don't think the Army-Navy football game is a big deal anymore. No BCS glamour teams? No Heisman Trophy candidates? Nobody who'll be decked out in a pricey designer suit and jabbering into a cell phone when the TV cameras show him as a top pick in the next NFL draft? Not enough big-time atmosphere, not enough glitz - that's your problem with the Army-Navy game? If so, you're missing the whole point of the best pure rivalry in college sports, which takes place for the 110th time Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

M&T Bank Stadium will play host in 2014 and 2016 to the Army-Navy football game, a rivalry long associated with Philadelphia that is expected to generate as much as $22 million per game for the Baltimore-area economy. The annual, tradition-rich game will also come for the first time in 2011 to FedEx Field in Landover, home of the Washington Redskins. It was last played in Baltimore in 2007. Baltimore, which has been host four times since the series began in 1890, had particularly sought the 2014 game, which will coincide with the bicentennial celebration of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

M&T Bank Stadium is expected to host at least one Army-Navy football game - and perhaps more - as the schools seek sites for future games, according to officials familiar with the process. The committee of representatives from the Naval Academy and West Point could announce sites for games after 2009 by week's end, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because selections have not been finalized. Baltimore had previously learned it was among four finalists, competing with Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field - which will host this year's game - as well as FedEx Field in Landover and the new Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The committee is examining bids for games from 2010 to 2014.
