Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy: Annual Results for America’s Triangular Series

    Since 1972, the Commander-in-Chief's trophy has decided the best of the college football service academies in a series of head-to-head matchups.

    While they unite to protect the nation away from the football field, the Army Black Knights, Air Force Falcons, and Navy Midshipmen boast a fierce footballing rivalry. Since 1972, they’ve been deciding the best program via a triangular series of head-to-head matchups known as the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy.
