75 Days

If you have been counting down the days, like we have, you will know that we are only 75 away from December 13! We are in the fifth week of the 2014 football season and both teams have had many ups and downs, but none will compare to those at the 115th Army-Navy game presented by USAA when everything is on the line.

So far this season Navy is 2-3 with big wins over Temple and Texas State. This weekend the Mids head to Air Force for the first game that has implications for the 2014 Commander in Chief Trophy.

Army has a record of 1-3 with a win over Buffalo under their belts. The Black Knights host Ball State this weekend for their first home game since their season opener.

December 13 will be the 115th meeting between the two prestigious academies with Navy boasting a 59-49-7 advantage over Army. Could this be the year the Black Knights make their comeback? Or, will the Midshipmen come out with the victory? I guess we will have to wait just 75 more days to find out…until then keep showing off your Army or Navy pride!

First Star Match of 2014

This weekend marks the beginning of the 2014-15 Army Navy rivalry when the Black Knights host the Midshipmen at the West Point Golf Course for the first Star Match of the year. Both teams had a practice round at the course today and will tee-off Saturday and Sunday at 8:30 a.m.

The layout of the match is similar to the Ryder Cup. Saturday consists of four, four-ball match play where the winner of the two-on-two battles will be determined by the team member with the lowest score on each hole. Sunday’s docket includes seven individual matches. The first team to claim six points wins the Star.

The rivalry began in 1939 and the two teams have met nearly every year since. The first 30 meetings were decided by match play, but from 1971-1994 the winner was determined by strokes. The match play format returned in 1995 and has been primarily used since. Navy leads the all-time series, 41-32-1, but Army has won the past two consecutive years.

100 Days

image

Today is Thursday, September 4 and that means we are only 100 days away from the 2014 Army Navy Game presented by USAA at M&T Bank Stadium!

Last weekend Navy held its own against the nationally-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes in their brand new white uniforms. The Buckeyes came out with the victory, but the Midshipmen played a competitive, physical game that gave them a 7-6 lead at half. This Saturday Navy travels to Philadelphia to face Temple at 1 p.m.

Army had a bye-week for opening weekend and kicks off its season at home on Saturday against the Buffalo Bulls at 12:00 p.m. This will be the Black Knights’ first test under first-year head coach Jeff Monken.

Even though both teams have many opponents before one another (10 for Navy, 11 for Army to be exact) the two teams are constantly looking forward to the 13th of December just like the rest of the nation. This will be the 115th meeting between the two prestigious academies with Navy boasting a 58-49-7 advantage over Army. Could this be the year the Black Knights make their comeback? Or, will the Midshipmen come out with the victory? I guess we have to wait just 100 more days to find out…until then keep showing off your Army or Navy pride!

Hello Army-Navy loyals!

My name is Ally Keirn and I am thrilled to announce that I am the new Army-Navy social media coordinator.

My passion for social media started when a teammate forced me to sign up for a Twitter account my junior year of college. Little did I know that it would pave the way for my future endeavors and aspirations. Ever since then I realized how powerful virtual social interactions were and tried to implement social media with everything I did. During our spring break lacrosse trip my senior year, Instagram extended its membership to Android users…best day ever! I got my first taste of how impactful pictures could be with five likes on my very first post of my dinner.

Since the early days of posting whatever was on my mind or in my sights, I have shaped the way I use social media, especially in regards to sports.

It is important to utilize social media in sports because it allows us to humanize professional, amateur, student and even cadet-athletes with behind the scenes insight into their athletic and personal lives. When fans refer to their favorite teams or players it’s never “they won today” it is always “we won today” and social media empowers us all to do so.

I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the history and traditions of the Army and Navy rivalry. I am looking forward to fueling your Army-Navy passion through social media in a handful of new ways for the 2014-15 season!

Army-Navy Star Game Series Comes Down To Baseball

image

If fans were not sure of the competitiveness of the Army-Navy rivalry, look no further than the 2013-2014 star match series where the Black Knights and Midshipmen are tied at 11 victories apiece heading into the final star match – baseball at the Naval Academy on April 26.

After winning the wrestling star match on Feb. 21, Navy held a 10-7 lead over Army, but since that time, the Black Knights have won four of the last five events, including men’s and women’s tennis, women’s outdoor track and field, and men’s lacrosse.

As for who will be victorious on April 26, it’s anybody’s guess. While Army is the favorite with a 22-12 overall record, Navy at 18-21 will not let an upset opportunity and star match series victory slip away.

The Black Knights lead the overall 2013-2014 Army-Navy series 13-12 with four baseball games left to go. While Army and Navy may play multiple times in one sport, only one is designated as the star game. The winners of each star game receive a star, which can be affixed to their varsity jacket.
