Army-Navy is one of college football’s most celebrated games. America’s Game, however, will not factor into College Football Playoff consideration.

Chris Vannini of The Athletic shared Wednesday that CFP director Bill Hancock addressed the Army-Navy game on Wednesday. CFP’s Selection Sunday comes before the game. With the Playoff expanding to a 12-team format, it is now more likely that one of the service academies could play in a Playoff game. The Army-Navy game, though, will not factor into the CFP.

Army-Navy is a schedule quirk in more ways than one. Back in October, the American Athletic Conference voted to add Army as a member.

The AAC has a conference championship game following the final weekend of the regular season. Army-Navy will continue to be held after the AAC championship game.

As it stands, Army and Navy could meet in the AAC championship game, which would have CFP implications. The teams would then play their regularly scheduled rivalry meeting the following weekend, as Army-Navy will be considered a nonconference game.

Army is on a 2-game winning streak in the annual rivalry, picking up a 17-11 win over Navy last year in Foxborough, Massachusetts at the home of the New England Patriots.

This year’s game is set for Dec. 14. It will be played in Landover, Maryland at the home of the Washington Commanders. It is set for 3 p.m. and will air on CBS.
