Storylines

Army: Army enters the 2018 college football season in the midst of its best stretch in over 20 years. The Knights finished the 2017 season with a record of 10-3, giving them an overall record of 18-8 the last two seasons. The last time Army had a two-year stretch to even compare to this one was in 1995-96, when it went 15-7-1. The Knights have also defeated Navy in two straight games, giving Army its first two-game winning streak against its rival since it won five straight from 1992-96.

Navy: Ken Niumatalolo is the winningest coach in Navy history, posting a record of 84-48 in his 132 games at the school. That's 29 more wins than George Welsh (1973-1981) had as the second-winningest coach in program history. Niumatalolo also has the second-highest winning percentage (.636) of any Navy coach to have coached at least 50 games at the school (Eddie Erdelatz, 1950-58: .643). All of which likely means a lot to Niumatalolo, but not as much as ending a two-game losing streak to Army would.
