The Navy-Notre Dame football rivalry is one of the oldest in the country. Each year, the two teams meet for a showdown on the gridiron. This will be the first time that the game is held in San Diego, which is home to Naval Base San Diego, the principal homeport of the Pacific Fleet. With over 24,000 sailors calling it home, the Midshipmen will have plenty of hometown support. The game will serve as the 92nd meeting between the two teams. Both teams have started off strong this year, and the game should make for a thriller. The Midshipmen have a formidable running attack and are led by junior quarterback Malcolm Perry. The Fighting Irish have an intimidating defensive unit and are led by senior quarterback Brandon Wimbush. Notre Dame currently leads the series 75-13-1.
