The match between the Black Knights and the Midshipmen for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy is being played for the 124th time this year. In celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party and the 225th anniversary of the USS Constitution’s maiden voyage, the game will be hosted by the Boston region. The match between the Army and Navy will take place in the New England region for the first time ever, with the Navy playing as the home team. The annual rivalry game between the United States Military Academy and its civilian counterpart will be highlighted on the top pregame show as all the pomp and circumstance of “America’s Game” are laid bare.

With an average of 1.9 million viewers (peaking at 2.6 million)—a 28% increase over Week 14 of 2022—GameDay delivered its most-watched conference championship show since 2011. This occurred last week at the SEC Championship. With an average of 2.0 million viewers, the premier pregame show finished the 2023 season on par with the record-breaking 2022 season. This included six shows that broke the CGD season record of 2.2 million viewers and a total reach of 30 million viewers.

Show Highlights & Guests

New England Patriots CEO Robert Kraft will join the desk during GameDay, and Lada will have conversations with Army head coach Jeff Monken and Navy head coach Brian Newberry on Saturday’s show prior to America’s Game.

Also joining the show will be General Randy A. George, Chief of Staff of the Army, and Admiral Lisa M. Franchetti, Chief of Naval Operations.

Live appearances from West Point Superintendent General Steve Gilland and Naval Academy Superintendent Rear Admiral Fred Kacher will also be featured on the show during Week 15.

Bill Belichick, the legendary head coach of the New England Patriots, will be a guest picker for Week 15 on GameDay. This will be the first appearance by the head coach of the six-time Super Bowl winning team on the show.

Before Saturday’s Heisman Trophy Ceremony presented by Nissan, the four Heisman finalists — Jayden Daniels of LSU, Marvin Harrison Jr. of Ohio State, Bo Nix of Oregon, and Michael Penix Jr. of Washington — will join GameDay remotely. (8 p.m., ESPN).

The Army-Navy Game is an American college football rivalry game between the teams of the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, New York and the United States Naval Academy (USNA) at Annapolis, Maryland. The USMA team, the "Army Black Knights", and the USNA team, the "Navy Midshipmen", each represent their services’ oldest officer commissioning sources. As such, the game has come to embody the spirit of the interservice rivalry of the United States Armed Forces. The game marks the end of the college football regular season and the third and final game of the season’s Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy, which includes the Falcons of the U.S. Air Force Academy.

The Army-Navy Game is one of the most traditional and enduring rivalries in college football. The game is nationally televised by CBS, which has aired the game every year since 1984 except for a five-year stint on ABC from 1991–1995. Instant replay made its American debut in the 1963 Army-Navy game. The winner of the game is awarded the Thompson Cup, named after its donor, Robert M. Thompson. The most recent game (the 115th) in the series was held at M&T Bank Stadium in Maryland, on December 13, 2014. Navy won the game by a score of 17–10. Navy leads the all-time series with a record of 59 wins, 49 losses, and seven ties.
