For the second straight season, the fate of the National Championship is on the line in the Army-Navy Game in Philadelphia. Army seeking their second consecutive National Title has the top ranking, while Navy was seeking redemption from a 23-7 loss in 1944. The Cadets came into the game off three straight shutouts. Powered by a big first quarter, Army would win 32-13, as Doc Blanchard led the way to the Heisman Trophy.
