Army Navy rivalry resumes

Over the years NFL Hall of Famer Roger Staubach, as well as other NFL players Phil McConkey and Napolean McCallum participated in the rivalry. Instant replay also debuted on television in the 1963 Army-Navy game. Various US Presidents have attended the game over the years.
