While the college football regular season has come and gone, there is still an all-time classic on the schedule for today with the 118th Army-Navy game set to take place in Philadelphia.
Army is coming off a long-awaited and emotional win last season, followed by a bowl victory.
The Midshepmen pushed their lead to 13-7 on the first drive of the second half. Woolfolk's score from three yards out with 8:06 remaining in the first quarter gave Army a 7-0 lead, with Navy cutting into that deficit with a Moehring 28-yard field goal with 55 seconds remaining in the quarter. Kicker Bennett Moehring missed a 48-yard field goal with time expiring in the snow that preserved a 14-13 victory for the Black Knights.
Army broke a 14-year losing streak to Navy last year and backed it up with another win despite being outgained 296-241 in offensive yards.

2 of 12 Navy Midshipmen stand in formation ahead of Saturday's Army-Navy game in Philadelphia. The kick had the distance but missed wide left. Perry was a workhorse for the Midshepmen; he finished with 250 rushing yards on 30 carries. The Black Knights had not scored since Army running back Darnell Woolfolk scored on a 3-yard run on Army's opening possession.
The game featured a total of three pass attempts and 95 rush attempts. "The 14 wins don't help us, the loss previous year doesn't hurt us", Midshipmen coach Ken Niumatalolo told reporters.
Both teams have bowl games to prepare for, with Army facing San Diego State in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl on December 23 and Navy taking on Virginia in the Military Bowl Presented by Northrop Grumman on December 28.
