The Battle for the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy - Week 8

The CIC Trophy has been awarded to the winner of the football competition between Army, Navy, and Air Force since 1972.  When no clear cut winner prevails in a particular season, last year's winner retains the trophy for another year.  This scenario has played out four times - 1974, 1976, 1980, and 1993.

Navy has won the prestigious award 18 times including 10 of the past 14 years.  Air Force has taken the trophy home to Colorado Springs 21 times including winning the award 13 of 14 seasons between 1989 and 2002.  Army has earned the award six times with the last time in 1996.

This season's CIC head-to-head matchups take place in October, November, and December.
October 7 - Navy 48, Air Force 45
