Navy and Ohio State will open their 2014 football seasons with a game at M&T Bank Stadium. The game, held Aug. 30, will be a rematch of this past season's opener, when the host Buckeyes held off the Midshipmen, 31-27. This time, Navy will be the host team. The stadium, where the Ravens play their home games, seats 71,000. A Navy team spokesman confirmed the game site, which was first reported by the Baltimore Business Journal. The Midshipmen have played Army, Notre Dame and Maryland at M&T Bank Stadium, and the games have sold out each time, stadium officials said.

As Rafi Montalvo was recovering last fall from a brain injury he sustained in a near-fatal car accident, the former Navy quarterback talked with teammate Will McKamey about his own return to the football field. McKamey, then a freshman, became an inspiration for Montalvo during his rehabilitation. When he was a senior at Grace Christian Academy in Knoxville, Tenn., in the fall of 2012, McKamey had collapsed during a playoff game and was hopitalized for several days after suffering from a blood clot that caused bleeding and swelling of his brain.

Notre Dame and Navy will play in Dublin, Ireland, in 2012. Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk says Aviva Stadium will be the site for the 86th meeting between the Fighting Irish and Midshipmen. The $410 million stadium opened in May and has a seating capacity of 50,000. "Obviously as an Irish-Catholic from Boston, Mass., I'm going to have a lot of requests for tickets — not airline tickets," Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said after Tuesday's practice in South Bend, Ind. "No, I just think it's a great venue and I'm excited about it. That's one of the unique things about being an independent, that you can have a game like that on the schedule.

The football game between Navy and Air Force in Annapolis will be played as scheduled despite the continuing shutdown of the U.S. government, Naval Academy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said Wednesday night. “The secretary of defense has authorized the game to move forward with the condition that there will be no [government-] appropriated funding expended,” Gladchuk said. Gladchuk said he was “relieved and appreciative.” “It's been a lengthy and very intense few days with the exchange of information, but that's what we do for a living,” said Gladchuk, who has been the athletic director at Navy since 2001.

Maryland men's lacrosse coach John Tillman has told athletic director Kevin Anderson he is staying at the school despite overtures from Navy about its coaching vacancy. Anderson said in an interview that he spoke with Tillman on Tuesday. "John has assured me that he's been very clear to them that he's not interested in their job," Anderson said.

Navy men's basketball coach Billy Lange has resigned, the Naval Academy announced today. FoxSports.com reported that Lange was leaving Annapolis to be an associate head coach at Villanova.

The courtship between the Big East and the Navy football program was made public last fall, but league and academy officials said Tuesday that the mutual wooing went on for the better part of a decade. Neither Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk nor Big East commissioner John Marinatto could pinpoint the day it began, but the courtship officially has become a marriage that will be consummated when the Midshipmen begin league play for football only in 2015. "We feel really strongly that it's clear to us the future of college football is in a conference," Gladchuk said during a joint teleconference.

Hoping its new men's basketball coach will take the program to new peaks, Navy reached into Happy Valley. Penn State coach Ed DeChellis is leaving the Nittany Lions to coach the Midshipmen, he and Navy announced Monday. DeChellis, 52, was 222-232 in eight seasons at Penn State. His move from the Big Ten to the mid-major Patriot League would appear to be a step down. "It's been a difficult weekend for my family," DeChellis said in a teleconference. "Penn State is a special place for me and my family, but I found another special place at the United States Naval Academy.

A nationally televised college football game between Navy and Air Force at a sold-out stadium in Annapolis could become one of the more visible casualties of the U.S. government shutdown. While Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said Tuesday that a final decision would not be reached until noon Thursday, Air Force officials issued a statement that said the game was being called off “for now” along with all other intercollegiate sports events. Gladchuk said there was a “significant possibility” that the game would be canceled, adding that “it's going to be a setback of the highest order if this game doesn't happen.” But Gladchuk is holding out hope that the U.S. Department of Defense will allow the game to be played.

During Kelly Coppedge's final conversation with her grandfather last Sunday, she says he was still thinking about Navy's football team. "He asked, 'When's Navy playing and who are they playing?" Kelly Coppedge recalled Thursday. J.O. "Bo" Coppedge, a former Navy football player and wrestler who ran Navy's athletic department from 1968 until his retirement in 1988, died Wednesday night - less than three days before the Midshipmen were scheduled to play Arizona State in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco.

There are just a few days remaining before "America's Game," and Navy football coach Ken Niumatalolo has some explaining to do. The last time the Midshipmen were in the national spotlight, they were across the Atlantic Ocean being trampled in their season opener by a Notre Dame team that has never looked back on its way to the upcoming BCS Championship Game. Two weeks later, they were beaten soundly by Penn State - the combined score of their first two games a humbling 84-17. Coming on the heels of his first losing season at Annapolis and a period of understandable "self-reflection" within the program, Niumatalolo could have been forgiven for wondering where his team - and his career - was heading, but he says now he knew in his heart that the Mids would find their way back.

Shortly after Boo Corrigan was hired as Army's athletic director earlier this year, he found himself talking to a group of graduates of the U.S. Military Academy. Nobody in the room noticed, but Corrigan seemed to be doing a pretty good imitation of a man many consider one of the most influential and respected college athletic administrators of his time. "I found my mannerisms were the same as my dad, the way I was talking," Corrigan recalled. "He's a lot smarter than I am. I called my brother David and said, 'I think I've become Papa Gene.'" The influence of his father, a Baltimore native who was the athletic director at Virginia and Notre Dame before becoming the commissioner of the Atlantic Coast Conference, was what directed his now 44-year old son back into what essentially was the family business.

The proposed marriage between the Big East Conference and the Navy football program has been put on hold — indefinitely. As the league appears set to announce its plans Wednesday to add five schools, Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said Tuesday night that "there were too many obstacles" to overcome for the Midshipmen to join for football only as early as 2014. Among the roadblocks, Gladchuk said, were Navy's bowl tie-ins through 2016, an existing television deal with CBS Sports that runs through the 2018 season and its game contracts with a number of schools going for several years, including one with Notre Dame though 2026.

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.

Seth "Buzz" Phillips was about to turn 40, living with his first wife and their two sons in Naples, Fla., when a recruiting postcard from the Navy chaplain corps arrived. Recalling the results of an aptitude test he had taken as a student at Penn State more than two decades earlier, Phillips and his wife signed up. Even rabbis — both he and his wife had their own congregations — want a little adventure. "We had lived in Melbourne for eight years and the Navy looked a little like Australia — it was a small, underserved Jewish community — and we had the chance to see the world," Phillips said.
