Navy and Connecticut will meet for the ninth time overall and just the second time as conference foes when the two square off today at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial StadiumCharging Goat (34,000) in Annapolis.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 PM with Navy Mutual serving as the presenting game day sponsor.

Navy leads the all-time series 7-1 and has won two-straight against the Huskies, both in East Hartford. This will be Connecticut’s first trip to Annapolis since 2002 when the Huskies shut out Navy, 38-0, in a torrential downpour.

Saturday’s game will be televised nationally by CBS Sports Network with John Sadak, Randy Cross and Sheehan Stanwick-Burch on the call.

The March-On of the Brigade of Midshipmen will be at 3:11 PM.

A fly-over will take place at the conclusion of the national anthem at approximately 3:20 PM. The fly-over will be from VP-30 out of Jacksonville, Fla. One of the pilots is former Navy football player Derrick Bruce (‘08), while one of the NFO’s is former Navy football player Craig Almond (‘08).

There will be a parachute jumper that will be jumping into Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium at 3:24 PM.

Between the first and second quarter, the Navy baseball team will be honored for last year’s school-record 43-16-1 season, winning Patriot League regular-season and tournament titles and winning a game in the NCAA Tournament.

At halftime, the Naval Academy Athletic Association will honor the 40th anniversary of women enrolled at the Naval Academy.

Following the game, Navy’s alma mater, Navy Blue & Gold, will be played as the team stands at attention in front of the Brigade of Midshipmen. It is one of the best traditions in college sports.

We will also be posting a Facebook LIVE video of the March-On, National Anthem and key moments of the game.  Check us out on All Annapolis.
