Since it was first played in 1890, the annual Army-Navy football game has been a highlight of the college football season, and while the series is relatively even, Navy has been dominant as of late. The Midshipmen have won the last 11 meetings over the Black Knights, but after a close game last year, Army may end the streak, USA Today reports.

Army comes into the game with a 3-8 record, while Navy boasts a 7-4 mark and is headed to a bowl game. Still, the Black Knights have some pieces in place that can help them spring the upset. Most notably, their players at skill positions – such as wide receiver Xavier Moss and running back Terry Baggett, can break a big play at any time, something Navy's head coach Ken Niumatalolo knows very well.

"I think they have made progress. I think this is their most athletic team," he told the publication. "They've got some [backs] that can run, and they have some wideouts that can run, a secondary that can move. He's getting in place the type of athletes he wants."

For many veterans, watching the annual match up is a highly anticipated part of life after service. It kicks off Saturday at 3 p.m. on CBS.
