With Trump in attendance, Army beats Navy for 3rd straight time

Trump flips coin at Army-Navy game

With Navy down 10-7, quarterback Zach Abey lost a fumble on fourth-and-12 deep in its own territory. Unfortunately, a fumble by Garret Lewis inside the Army 5-yard line ended the Navy threat and effectively finished the game.

The president arrived for the game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday afternoon, tweeting about his excitement for the event before he landed.

President Trump made the honorary coin toss at the 119th Army-Navy game, one of the oldest rivalries in college football.

The president will depart for Philadelphia later Saturday on route to Lincoln Financial Field, where the Black Knights are facing off against the Midshipmen.
