President Trump will become the 10th commander-in-chief to attend the game while in office.

- US President Donald Trump will officiate the coin toss between the Army Black Knights of the US Military Academy (USMA) and the Navy Midshipmen of the US Naval Academy (USNA).

Army hopes to expand its winning streak to three after losing fourteen in a row in a rivalry that has been underway since 1890. Its 10th win of 2018 came via a third-straight win over Navy.

It was the president's first visit to the game as commander-in-chief, though he had visited as president-elect in 2016 and made an appearance on CBS Sports.

Joseph Dunford, who now serves as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as well as the man picked by Trump to succeed him, current US Army chief of staff Gen. Mark Milley, were also present.

The Cavaliers came way with just their fifth win of the season on Monday, edging out the Nets, 99-97, in Brooklyn. After the game , he said "they better put some respect on my name".

The president will depart for Philadelphia later Saturday on route to Lincoln Financial Field, where the Black Knights are facing off against the Midshipmen. Navy would get a defensive stop afterward and get the ball back in Army territory, and quickly capitalized with a touchdown drive to cut Army's lead to 10-7.

The Midshipmen were intent upon protecting the team's mascot, Bill the Goat, because there is extensive history of the goat being kidnaped around the time of their game against Army every year.

No. 22 Army (9-2) is in the AP Top 25 for the first time since 1996.

On Saturday afternoon, Army and Navy took the field for one of the best games of the college football season. James Lankford, R-Okla., also was aboard.
