Navy and Lehigh will meet for the 22nd time in school history and for the first time since 1987 when they square off on Saturday afternoon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (34,000). Kickoff is set for 3:30 pm and the presenting game day sponsor is AAFMAA. Navy leads the all-time series, 14-6-1, but Lehigh won the last meeting, 24-9.

Today’s flyover features four Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornets from the “RAMPAGERS” of VFA-83 and the “GYPSIES” of VFA-32 based out of Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia Beach, Va. Piloting the lead aircraft will be Cmdr. Eric Thompson, the Commanding Officer of the RAMPAGERS, USNA Class of 2000. The two wing aircraft will be piloted by, Lt. Cmdr. Michael Farley and Lt. Cmdr. Adam Mosley, both USNA Class of 2006. The Weapon Systems Operators are Lt. Adam Collins and Lt. Joe Cotton. The slot aircraft will be piloted by Lt. Cmdr. Nathan Davey, USNA Class of 2008. The RAMPAGERS’ mission is to precisely project power ashore and at sea with combat-ready aircraft and aircrew while demonstrating professionalism as ambassadors of the United States Navy.

There will be a parachute jumper from Team Fastrax that will be carrying an American flag at 3:24 pm.
