WASHINGTON (AP) - President George W. Bush plans to take in the next chapter of one of college football's most-storied rivalries, going next month to watch the annual Army-Navy football game.
The 109th meeting between the two teams takes place Dec. 6 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Navy leads the series 52-49-7.
In fact, the Midshipmen have mostly dominated the three major service academies, winning the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy, awarded yearly to the winner of the competition between them, for five years in a row.
The annual game has been moved to later in the year to give the matchup more visibility. It now will be the last regular-season college football game each year.
Bush previously attended the game in 2001 and 2004.
presidential portraits started in 1862, according to White House press secretary Dana Perino.
