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.

The lives and careers of Navy football coach Ken Niumatalolo and Army coach Rich Ellerson have crossed many times over nearly three decades, starting when Niumatalolo was a two-sport high school athlete outside Honolulu and Ellerson recruited him to play quarterback at Hawaii. Ellerson brought Niumatalolo and two more highly acclaimed players, Thor Salanoa and Brian Norwood, from Radford High to play for the Rainbows. Salanoa was Niumatalo's cousin and Norwood, now the associate head coach at Baylor, was one of his best friends.

On the surface, Matt Hauser was an Army fan, wearing a black-and-camouflage jersey and rooting for the home team at the annual Army-Navy flag football matchup at Fort Meade. But like many Marylanders, he has deep respect for Navy, too. Lifting his Army jersey, he revealed a blue Navy jersey underneath. Even in flag football, Army-Navy is "a nice rivalry," said Hauser, a Severn insurance agent who helped organize a tailgate party for Thursday's game. But there's more to it, he said.

In the days leading up to his final game in the Army-Navy football rivalry, senior inside linebacker Cody Peterson is keenly aware of what is at stake for him and the rest of the Midshipmen, who have won the last 11 meetings in the annual series against their archrivals. "I think as a senior, you have a responsibility to uphold the standard as far as Navy football goes," Peterson said Wednesday morning during media day at Lincoln Financial Field. "There's pressure to get No. 12. We want to make sure that we do our job as seniors and leave on a good note.

It happened in the first quarter of Navy's wild overtime victory over San Jose State two Saturdays ago. It happened in the last regular season game before the Midshipmen get to play in their version of the Super Bowl , next week's 114th Army-Navy Game. It's something that happens just about every week somewhere in the football world, but it shouldn't have happened to this kid. Senior wide receiver Matt Aiken pulled in 10-yard pass and felt a shoulder pad crash into his left leg. He knew right away that something was wrong, because he already knew way too much about what football can do to the inside of a healthy knee.
