navy-uconn-sept-10-2016-15Navy and Memphis will meet on Saturday afternoon at Navy- Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (34,000) with first place on the line in the American Athletic Conference West Division.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 PM and the presenting game day sponsor is AAFMAA.

Navy and Memphis control their own destiny in the AAC West as they are two of the three teams that are still undefeated in conference play. The other team, USF, leads the AAC East and is Navy’s opponent next week.

Navy leads the all-time series against Memphis, 1-0, winning last year in Memphis, 45-20. This will be the Tigers’ first trip to Annapolis.

Navy has won 13 straight home games dating back to the 2014 season. Its last home loss was to Western Kentucky, 36-27, on Sept. 27, 2014. The 13-game home winning streak ties the record for consecutive wins at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Navy won the first 13 games in the stadium’s history, which opened in 1959.

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 3:16 PM.

A fly-over will take place at the conclusion of the national anthem at approximately 3:27 PM by VFA-11 “The Red Rippers” out of Naval Air Station Oceana.

There will be a parachute jumper that will be jumping into Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium at 3:29 PM.

At halftime, the 8th & I Marine Corps Silent Drill Team will perform followed by the Naval Academy Drum & Bugle Corps.

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.

The AAC game between East Carolina and Navy, originally scheduled to be played Oct. 13 at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, has been rescheduled for Nov. 19 because of flooding associated with Hurricane Matthew. Both ECU and Navy had Nov. 19 as an open date on their schedules, making the logistics of moving the contest possible. Game time and TV coverage will be announced at a later date.
