By admin - July 31, 2020
Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo always appreciates the calm anticipation moments before opening kickoff against the Army. Here are the highlights:
- Niumatalolo describes it as a chilling feel there unlike any other game.
- That sudden rush you get after those serene moments can seriously amp you up.
- Due to the pandemic, this is the first time in 77 years it’ll be played at West Point’s Michie Stadium.
- Both schools agreed to this for safety reasons because Philadephia’s attendance capacity for outside events got more stringent.
- Regardless of the change, the show must go on.
- Army coach Jeff Monken said the excitement and history makes it even more intriguing to play here a fourth time.
- No fans will be allowed at the stadium, but the entire Brigade of Midshipmen and Corps of Cadets will be in attendance. President Trump is scheduled to fly in.
- Between the history of the rivalry and the anticipation of the game, this is sure to be quite the show.
