It has been four weeks since Navy added to its string of victories over Army in college football's most venerated rivalry, but the amicable athletic animosity between the nation's two oldest service academies does not begin and end on the gridiron. Their reciprocal mantras - "Go Navy, beat Army" and "Go Army, Beat Navy" - reverberate through their respective athletic programs all year round, and the intensity of the rivalry was very much on display for Saturday's nationally televised basketball doubleheader at Alumni Hall.

The latest installment of the Army and Navy men's basketball rivalry will take place Saturday at 4 p.m. at Alumni Hall in Annapolis. The Midshipmen lead the series 53-37, but the Black Knights have won the last two meetings and three of the last four. As important as beating an archrival is, Navy has other things on its collective mind. The team is 6-8 overall and 1-2 in the Patriot League, and has lost five of its last six contests. That's why coach Ed DeChellis isn't putting more significance on the game against Army than any other league contest.

PHILADELPHIA - Navy freshman cornerback Brendon Clements had gained plenty of on-field experience going into his first Army-Navy game, having started for much of his first year in Annapolis. Yet when Clements woke up Saturday morning at the team's hotel, he was more nervous than he had ever been for a college game. The feeling didn't go away after he went to breakfast, nor did it after he a pregame meeting. “I told some of the other players I haven't been nervous all year and I'm nervous now, and we haven't even left for the game yet,” Clements recalled a few hours later.

The snow came and went, leaving a covering on the grass surface of frozen Lincoln Financial Field and a few thousand hearty fans left in the stands by halftime Saturday. The Black Knights of Army came and went, too, but as has become a habit against Navy's respected, if overmatched, rival, the Midshipmen and quarterback Keenan Reynolds simply stayed the course. After a slow start played in swirling winds, snow and cold, pelting rain that lasted until well into the second half, Navy and Reynolds overcame the elements, beating Army, 34-7, before a quickly dwindling crowd of 65,612.

It's a fitful dream, one that has haunted Dick Nowak for 50 years. In it, Army's football team has the ball on Navy's 2-yard line. Trailing by six points, Nowak and the Cadets line up to run a final play as precious seconds tick away. And then? Time runs out - and Nowak wakes up. “The ending is always the same,” he said resignedly. “We never get the play off.” The dream is all too real. In 1963, that's how Army lost to Navy, 21-15, in a game deeply etched in the lore of their 144-year rivalry.

Bobby Kough can still remember the moment Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds got away. "Somebody tried to cut [block] me. I was right there to tackle him," Kough, a junior defensive end for Army, said earlier this week. "I didn't have any force or power in my legs, so it was just my upper body. He kind of ran opposite of me, and I slid off of him. He strung it out to the sideline and our guys couldn't get to him. " The next thing Kough (pronounced Co) saw, Reynolds was in the end zone after an 8-yard touchdown run, one that gave the Midshipmen the lead with 4:41 remaining in last year's game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Boo Corrigan is torn. His parents Gene and Lena were born and raised in Baltimore, and the younger Corrigan started a sports marketing company in the city. But as the athletic director for the United States Military Academy, Corrigan is understandably wary about the Army-Navy football game returning to Charm City for 2014 and 2016. "I feel most for our cadets who have to get up that morning and take an eight-hour bus ride down," Corrigan said. "They're leaving in the military term of oh-dark-thirty to get down to Baltimore.
