Who was won more Army vs Navy football games? Record and stats
As the traditional Army Navy game moves to East Rutherford, New Jersey for this year's matchup, we look at the historical record between these two rivals
One of the most traditional and enduring fixtures of the college football calendar is upon us. Now in its 122nd edition, the Army Navy game is frequently attended by sitting US Presidents, congressmen, and the top brass of both services. The game has been nationally televised each year since 1945 and last year's game was watched by 8.4 million people.
The series was first played in 1890 and nine years later became an annual occurrence. Though Army has had the better run over recent years, having taken four of the last five meetings, Navy leads the series with 61 wins to Army’s 53. Seven of the matches have ended in a tie.
Prior to Army’s recent success, Navy had won 17 of 19, including 14 in a row from 2002 to 2015. The question now is, are Army starting a new era of dominance or is this just a blip in the middle of a Navy run?
This year, the USS Constitution has continued a long running tradition by naming one of their 24-pound long guns “Beat Army” in support of the U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen. In the 2020 edition of the fixture, the USS Constitution had named the counterpart 24-pound long gun “Go Navy”. When paired in a gun team, the two guns read “Go Navy, Beat Army.”
