The team has a history of excellent players, including their Heisman Trophy winners, Doc Blanchard (1945), Glenn Davis (1946), and Pete Dawkins (1958). These same players have also been Maxwell Award winners during their college sports careers. The team has also seen three James E. Sullivan Award winners, including Doc Blanchard (1945), Arnold Tucker (1946), and most recently Andrew Rodriguesz (2011). But these feats might not have been possible without stellar coaches. These include Tom Cahill (1966) who won the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award. As well as Jeff Monken (2018) who won the George Munger Collegiate Coach of the Year award.
The Army West Point Black Knights, along with Navy and Air Force also compete for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy. This prestigious award is given to the academy that defeats the others in football that year (or is retained by the previous winner in case of a three-way tie). To date, Army has won the CIC Trophy nine times, with their most recent win being in 2020.
Besides the famous Army-Navy game, the West Point Black Knights have two traditions that fans often enjoy. First, the school fight song is “On, Brave Old Army” Also, the team mascots are the Army Mules, who were officially adopted as mascots by USMA in 1936.
About Michie Stadium
Michie Stadium is an outdoor football stadium set on the campus of the US Military Academy in West Point, New York. The stadium is built with seating for 38,000 spectators and has been around since 1924. The Army West Point Black Knights are proud to call it home.
The stadium sits at the upper part of campus directly west of lusk Reservoir. The stadium offers an incredible view of the Hudson River and the classic Neo-Gothic architecture of the campus below. These features earned it recognition as Sports Illustrated’s #3 sports venue of the 20th Century.
One of the Biggest Rivalry Game in College Football
The Army Black Knights of USMA has a long-standing rivalry against the Navy Midshipmen of USNA as both teams represent their service’s oldest officer commissioning sources. The game embodies the spirit of interservice rivalry in the US Armed Forces and marks the end of the college football regular season. The game is one of the most enduring traditions in football to date and is frequently attended by sitting US Presidents as well as being televised each year since 1945 on ABC, CBS, or NBC, with CBS taking televising duties since 1996 with rights to broadcast the game through 2028. The game was played once at Michie Stadium in 1943 during World War II but has not appeared there since. The reason is that the stadium, while grand for all regular-season home games, is simply not large enough to handle the crowds that come to cheer on both teams and see how the rivalry ends in any specific year.
But looking at the current rivalry statistics shows that while Navy has the most lopsided victory and longest win streak, the Black Knights are currently enjoying a winning streak since 2016. If the current roster has anything to say about it, Army will add another year to their streak in 2019.
