Navy and Air Force will meet for the 50th time in series history when they square off on Saturday afternoon in the first leg of the chase for the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy in front of what could be a record crowd at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (34,000). The stadium record for attendance is 38,205 set in 2013 against Air Force. Kickoff is set for 3:30 PM (ET).

Navy has won the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy 10 of the last 14 years and has won 24 of the last 29 Service Academy games against Air Force and Army.

The National Anthem will take place at 3:19 PM, followed by a flyby at the end of the National Anthem by four Boeing F/A-18F Superhornets from the “Swordsmen” of Strike Fighter Squadron 32 based out of Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach. In the lead aircraft – Lt. Kyle “Judas” Webber, USNA Class of 2011, and Cmdr Wade “FLIB” Blizzard, Commanding Officer VFA-32, USNA Class of 1998. In Dash-2 – Lt. Jeff “Marv” Davis, USNA Class of 2012, and Lt. Bill “Dorothy” Adams, USAFA Class of 2007. In Dash-3 – Lt. Andrew “Mr. Tumnus” Weatherholt, USNA Class of 2012, and Lt.
