This book in the College Football Teams series (12 titles) highlights the Army and Navy football teams and their legendary rivalry.

Sidebars include interesting factoids, while visually arresting full-page color and archival black-and-white photos enhance the text. This brief overview is a good addition for young readers who are interested in quick facts about the Navy Midshipmen and Army Black Knights team rivalry.
