Thanks to the The Logan Zone on WRAL 99.9 The Fan for having me on the air to discuss the the 118th Army-Navy Game that was played on Dec. 9. My spot begins with 15:35 remaining in the show. In addition to the Army-Navy Game, we discuss the Heisman Trophy. I offer the opinion Bryce Love deserved it over Baker Mayfield.

Army defeated Navy 14-13 later in the day.

As John Feinstein writes in the preface of his book, "A Civil War," about the Army-Navy rivalry, everyone should see the game at least once.
