The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

WHISKEY, TANGO, FOXTROT

By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — In meetings between Army and Navy in games in which the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy was secured earlier in the season by Air Force, the last five scores in this military battle have witnessed a combined game total of 30, 15, 27, 27, and 30 total points.

What it also means is military teams rely on defense when locking horns.

In a matchup of run-heavy, triple-option attacks on offense, these two teams have stayed UNDER the total in each of the last 10 meetings. To paraphrase legendary Yogi Berra, “It ain’t over till it’s over.”
