Army vs Navy : Game 2018 live : Start time, TV schedule, and how to watch online College football is a sport built on tradition and rivalry, and there may not be a better representative of both those tenets than the annual meeting between Army and Navy. The first showdown on the gridiron between these two service academies took place in 1890, with Army winning 32-16.
Army vs Navy live
Over that time the series has been split pretty evenly, with Navy holding a 60-51-7 advantage. Both teams tend to dominate in spurts, with Navy recently winning 14 straight between 2002 and 2015. The Knights put an end to that streak — the longest winning streak by either team in series history — in 2016 with a 21-17 win and followed it up last season with a thrilling 14-13 victory.
Will history repeat itself, or will Navy get back in the winning column against its biggest rival? Let’s break the game down and make a prediction on the outcome, against-the-spread, of course. But first, a reminder: The 2018 Army-Navy Game will air live nationally on CBS and stream live on CBSS ports.com, the CBS Sports App and fubo, TV (try for free) beginning at 3 p.m. ET on Saturday.
Army will win if … It sticks to the game plan and takes care of the football. Army has only lost four fumbles this season, which is something of a miracle considering it’s an option team pitching the ball with regularity, but it’s the second season in a row the Knights have only lost four fumbles. More often than not, the team that does the better job taking care of the football wins this game.
Navy will win if … Like Army, Navy will need to take care of the football. Unlike Army, Navy’s turned the ball over more often, as its lost 10 fumbles. Aside from that, though, the key for Navy will be finding ways to make big plays on offense. Whether it’s on the ground or through the air, Navy will need to find success with explosion plays to pull off the upset.
