President Trump will be in attendance for Saturday’s Army-Navy game, one of the best games of the college football season.
This will be the first time Trump has attended the game as sitting president. He attended in 2016 as President-elect. The White House confirmed to the Associated Press that he’ll take in the game live.
It’s the first time a sitting president has attended the game in seven years.
Saturday will mark the 108th meeting between Army and Navy. The Midshipmen lead the all-time series 60-51-7.
Trump will be the 10th sitting president to attend the Army-Navy game. Theodore Roosevelt was the first to do so, making an appearance at the 1901 event. President Barack Obama attended the game in 2011.
Army has won the previous two games in the head-to-head series, defeating Navy in 2016 and 2017. Prior to that, the Midshipmen at a 14-game winning streak.
ESPN’s College GameDay will be in Philadelphia to preview the game.
