Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, Chicago's Soldier Field and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., are the finalists to host the 2015 to 2018 men's lacrosse championships, the NCAA announced Wednesday. Notably absent was the state of Maryland; Baltimore has hosted the event five times in the past decade. The NCAA said this summer that in response to declining attendance at the event, it would consider holding the event at smaller venues , but Wednesday's announcement indicates that it will continue to hold the championships at NFL stadiums.

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.

PHILADELPHIA -- Massachusetts senior All-American Jack Reid has led a bunch of inspired efforts by his team's defense this spring. Saturday's 8-5 takedown of No. 2 seed Maryland in the NCAA tournament semifinals, in which Reid sparked a unit that shut out Terps all-time leading scorer Joe Walters, is the latest example. As unseeded UMass contemplates its first appearance in the national championship game today at Lincoln Financial Field, a road the Minutemen traveled by eliminating three of the tournament's top six seeds, Reid considered the monumental task at hand.

Navy has had its way with Army throughout the five-year tenure of coach Paul Johnson, whose Midshipmen have beaten the Black Knights by an average of 31 points in four previous meetings. The Mids, who are pursuing an unprecedented fourth consecutive Commander in Chief's Trophy on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field, could achieve a five-game winning streak against Army for only the third time during the 107-game rivalry. Judging by the enthusiasm it has shown in practice this week, Navy (8-3)

The fourth quarter belonged to Navy yesterday and, as a result, the Midshipmen are headed for a school-record third consecutive postseason game. A blocked field-goal attempt by defensive end Andrew Tattersall slowed Temple's upset hopes and Navy seized the momentum thereafter to break open a tight game and score a 38-17 victory before 30,261 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

Championship Most Outstanding Player Jeff White made 13 saves to lead the third-ranked Le Moyne men's lacrosse team to the NCAA Division II national championship with an 11-10 victory over top-ranked Mercyhurst on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The Dolphins won their last 10 games of the season to claim the program's fourth national championship and their second in two appearances at Lincoln Financial Field (2006). Le Moyne finishes the season with a record of 18-2, which ties the 2006 squad for the most victories by a Division II national champion.

Navy wide receiver Brandon Turner started off his senior year on a sour note. The team's leading pass-catcher in 2011 missed the season opener against Notre Dame and didn't start against Penn State after being suspended for failing his physical readiness test. Turner has certainly made up for his early season struggles. After catching a team-high 19 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns -- including two against Indiana -- Turner made what he called the biggest reception of his career Saturday in Navy's 17-13 win over Army at Lincoln Financial Field.

In response to an attendance downturn at recent NCAA men's lacrosse championship weekends, the organization is now open to allowing non-NFL stadiums to serve as hosts in upcoming years. The development comes on the heels of three consecutive years of reduced attendance for Championship Weekend. Attendance at May's Division I semifinals (28,444) and final (28,224) at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia was the lowest since the final four began rotating between M&T Bank Stadium, Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., and Lincoln Financial Field in 2003.

Rarely, if ever, will a game between a team with a modest 7-4 record and its 2-9 opponent be as meaningful as the one scheduled to play here at Lincoln Financial Field on Dec. 8. Then again, this year's meeting between Navy and Army has more at stake than usual. It marks the first time since 2005 that the Commander in Chief's Trophy — given to the winner of the round robin played out among the nation's service academies — will be handed to the team that emerges victorious from this iconic rivalry.

Washington 17, Philadelphia 12 Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Donovan McNabb's much-anticipated return was a triumphant one, as the former franchise quarterback for the Eagles led the Washington Redskins in a 17-12 victory over Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field. McNabb, who spent the previous 11 seasons quarterbacking the Eagles to five NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl appearance, played against his former squad for the first time in his career.

On Broad Street, the main thoroughfare leading to Lincoln Financial Field, scalpers were holding up fistfuls of tickets to the Army-Navy game an hour before kickoff. Business appeared to be slow. Maybe people sensed what was coming. What finally happened after nearly 3 1/2 hours on a chilly Saturday was an ugly - there's no way to sugarcoat it - 17-3 Navy win, its eighth straight over Army in this storied rivalry. At least Army put up a fight in this one, something it hasn't done much in the recent past and something the Navy players - and maybe CBS, the poor network televising this game - appreciated.
