In a sport steeped in tradition like college football, there are fewer traditions more revered than when Army and Navy face off on the final game of the regular season. The rivalry between the Black Knights and the Midshipmen began in 1890, and when the teams meet on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, it will be for the 120th time. Army currently enjoys a three-game winning streak in the series, but Navy is having the better year with a record of 9-2, while Army sits at 5-7 on the year. 

The Army-Navy game kicks off at 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, Dec. 14 and will be broadcast on CBS . (For the record: CNET is a division of CBS.) You can stream the game live for free and without authentication on CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports App. Cable TV cord cutters can watch the game on any of the main live TV streaming services except Sling TV, which doesn't carry CBS. Not every service carries every local network, however, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries CBS in your area.
