Now, Navy's football season turns very serious. With a first victory finally secured - albeit not easily because of miscues and penalties - the Midshipmen will be stalking big game this weekend when they host an Air Force team from which they have wrested the Commander in Chief's Trophy for two years running. Named in honor of the nation's president, the trophy is presented to the winner of competition among the three major service academies. "This is a big game coming up, and it's always going to be a big game," Navy coach Paul Johnson said.

Horse racing Rules on claiming horses toughened The Maryland Racing Commission toughened its rules on claiming horses at its monthly meeting Wednesday, addressing an issue that some believe might have contributed to an early-year spike in racetrack deaths at Laurel Park. The commission passed a new rule that will prevent a claimed horse from racing within 30 days unless the purse is at least 25 percent higher than in the thoroughbred's previous run. The new rule is designed to prevent owners from making a quick profit by claiming a horse and running him without proper rest against inferior competition in another claiming race.

What went right Navy's defense played better, forcing Northern Illinois to punt four times - a season high - and the defense also picked off a pass and had two sacks and several hurries. All major improvements. What went wrong The defense couldn't stop Northern Illinois on fourth down, as the Huskies went 7-for-7, while Navy was 0-for-1. Defining moments Senior free safety Greg Thrasher, starting for the injured Ketric Buffin, stopped a potential game-tying drive by Northern Illinois when he intercepted a pass tipped by Corey Johnson with 8:27 to play in the second quarter.

Philadelphia -- All the pomp, pageantry and tradition that make the Army-Navy game unique will be on prominent display again today when the military academy rivals clash in their 106th meeting at Lincoln Financial Field. But to the opposing football teams, it's primarily about capturing the hardware and resultant bragging rights for servicemen and women throughout the world. For the first time in nine years, the coveted Commander in Chief's Trophy will be the spoil that goes to the winner, adding vital significance to a game that always stands as the most important of the year for the Black Knights and Midshipmen.

Everything has happened so quickly for Navy freshman safety Kevin Newsome. One minute, he was winding up his days at Raines High School in Jacksonville, Fla. The next, he was battling the rugged, two-month academy introduction known as plebe summer. Then, suddenly, Newsome was playing before crowds exceeding 30,000, in games more fast-paced than anything he had ever known. "It's a process of getting out there, tasting it, seeing how fast everybody was running around," Newsome said. "It seems like a dream, with how fast it's happened."

Navy fullback Adam Ballard echoed the sentiments of every senior on the Midshipmen football team yesterday when he said: "We don't want to be the ones to lower the bar."

"The thinking here has changed a lot since my freshman year," senior center Antron Harper said.

Normally on display in the rotunda of the Naval Academy's Bancroft Hall, the Commander in Chief's Trophy this week rested smack dab in the center of the football team's locker room. Conspicuous placement of the hardware — presented annually to the service academy with the best head-to-head record among the three — was at the top of coach Ken Niumatalolo's motivational checklist in advance of the Midshipmen's game at Air Force on Saturday. It also was a rare instance this decade in which the trophy changed locations.

In terms of length and lore, the rivalry between Navy and Air Force does not come close to approaching the storied 118-year marathon between the Midshipmen and Army. "Army is bigger in the sense that it's America's game. That's the one that's played on national television," Navy linebacker Clint Sovie said this week. "The Army game has all the festivities. ... Air Force does not. To the outsider, I'm sure it looks a lot different. It is about the same for us." Said Air Force athletic director Hans Mueh: "[Army-Navy is]

The Navy football team will know its postseason destination soon, but it already knows where its immediate focus should be. Army is on the horizon in less than two weeks, and the bowl opponent will have to wait to get the attention of the Midshipmen. The Commander in Chief's Trophy is in the balance. If the minds of the players wander, the coaching staff will certainly snap them to attention. "It's a big, big game," coach Paul Johnson said yesterday of the 106th meeting with the Black Knights on Dec. 3 in Philadelphia.
