The 120th installment of the Army-Navy Game on Saturday comes with some added incentive for the No. 23 Midshipmen.
Navy (9-2) was tabbed on Sunday for a spot in the Liberty Bowl, a prestigious postseason game that pits it against Big 12 opponent Kansas State. Kansas State handed College Football Playoff semifinalist Oklahoma its only loss of the regular season, so the Midshipmen have an opportunity to make noise at a national level in Memphis.
But first, coach Ken Niumatalolo noted in his Liberty Bowl press conference that Navy has more pressing concerns ahead of it this weekend in Philadelphia.
