Due to crowd limits at Lincoln Financial Field in Philly, which has historically been the main city to host the game save for a few years, they are moving the game to West Point in order to allow all Midshipmen and Cadets to attend. Should be interesting. First time in since WWII, the game will be played at a home and not neutral site.

Navy has never hosted the game ever. This would have been the perfect year for that to happen.

Yeah, I wonder how they came to the decison to have Army host over Navy. Maybe West Point can better accommodate the crowd than Annapolis?
