As they prepare for the first-ever Emerald Bowl and their second straight postseason party, these Navy Midshipmen are in search of an edge, anything that can propel them to a bowl victory and a 10-win season. Sure, this game won't receive huge national buzz in the college football world, as one would expect of any bowl game played in a baseball park. But don't tell Navy this game at SBC Park, the summer home of Barry Bonds, doesn't really matter.

As the Navy football team prepares for its 105th encounter with The Long Gray Line from West Point, the Midshipmen seem to have everything going for them: the fresh memory of a 47-point run against Rutgers; the clinching of a second-straight bowl bid; an 8-2 record; and the knowledge of two runaway victories over Army in the past two seasons. On paper, it would seem there's little chance of Navy losing this game—and an outright claim to yet another Commander-in-Chief Trophy.
