After more than 40 years and after the rich history of these two teams, Army and Notre Dame returns to their former battlefield, the Yankees Stadium in New York. In 1924 the first game between Notre Dame and Army took place and then their rivalry became intense during the 1946 and 1946 games. These two teams gather most of the College football stars during that time and clash on a classic match.
Today, these two teams battle one another fresh from a win. Notre Dame has a very good feeling going into this game because last week they defeated then number 14 Utah, 28-3. It was a humiliating game for the Utah Utes.
Army Black Knights is coming into this game fresh from a win against Kent State, 45-28. When it comes to who defeated the greater team then we can say it is Notre Dame but who knows what will happen today.
The rivalry between Army, Notre Dame and Navy is intense but the standings here does not matter since all these teams are independent of any conference. Looking into these teams in terms of win-loss, Navy leads with 7-3 followed by Army with 6-4 and then Notre Dame at 5-5.
To give you a bit of a background on why this game is significant here is a look at the rivalry of Army and Notre Dame.

One of nature’s marvels is the Leonid meteor shower that will keep us in awe as it will give a life to the sky tonight.
Leonid meteor showers can be seen annually. According to our dear Wikipedia, “Leonids in particular are well known for having bright meteors or fireballs which may be 9 mm across and have 85 g of mass and punch into the atmosphere with the kinetic energy of a car hitting at 60 mph. An annual Leonid shower may deposit 12 or 13 tons of particles across the entire planet. Sometimes these trails of meteoroids cause meteor showers and sometimes meteor storms.”
A word from Discovery magazine, we will be able to see 20 to 30 flashes across the sky each hour.
The good time to see it is around 3 o’clock in the morning, but if you want a better view, watch around 5:15am, when the moon sets and before the sun rises.
This celestial event should never be missed! It only happens once a year. Maybe this is the time where we can make a lot of wishes:)
