Army and Navy will meet for the 113th time on Saturday, and Navy has dominated this matchup in recent years. The Midshipmen have won the last 10 meetings between the two sides, the longest streak in the history of the series. They'll be looking to make it eleven in a row on Saturday, and the are favored to do so.
Navy are 7-4 on the season, and will be bowl bound as they head to San Francisco to face Arizona State. They have won six of their past seven games after starting the season 1-3, and they boast a solid defense to go along with the nation's No. 6 rushing attack.
Army have been struggling through a difficult season, and they have had the worst defense in FBS for 2012. They do have the nation's No. 1 ground game though, so they should be able to move the ball. They enter Saturday's rivalry game at just 2-9, with their only wins coming against Air Force and Boston College.
With both teams having already defeated Air Force, Saturday's game will decide who wins the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. Air Force had won it in each of the two previous seasons, while Navy won it in each of the seven seasons before that run. Army last won the trophy in 1996.
