Behind The Lines: The Academy Football Report, Episode 12, November 12, 2021


You want rivalries? We have rivalries!

Service Academy football loves two things: pageantry and rivalries, not necessarily in that order.

In Week 10 in Arlington, TX the first ever "Commanders' Classic" featured a high-temp intra-service rivalry matchup between Air Force Falcons and the Army Black Knights that was more than just about anyone could have envisioned.

The Navy Midshipmen travelled to South Bend, Indiana for week 10 to renew their storied rivalry against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish that is one of the oldest in college football, and was only interrupted in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Plus bitter D-1 conference rivals, the Coast Guard Bears and the Merchant Marine Mariners, are gearing up for the annual Secretaries' Cup grudge match.

We have extensive interviews and insights on why this game matters so much to so many. Plus we'll highlight Coast Guard's loss to WPI and look forward to Air Force at Colorado and Army back home against Bucknell.

All of that on this week's episode of Behind The Lines: The Academy Football Report.
