College Football Week 15 Online Betting
The Week 15 college football schedule has just one game, as Army takes on Navy. The Army-Navy game is bigger than college football. It is a rivalry that reeks of tradition, history, and patriotism. Known as “America’s Game,” the Army-Navy Game is one of the most-viewed college football games annually. For sure, neither team is a national power. But both teams consistently play good football and have been regulars on the bowl circuit recently. But what matters is the players' and coaches' passion and commitment.
In 2022, Army topped the Navy for a 20-17 overtime and a revenge win. Navy running back Anton Hall pushed for a go-ahead touchdown but fumbled near paydirt. Army recovered and then kicked the winning field goal. Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo was fired after the game. Had the Navy won, Coach Ken might still be in command.

In recent years Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field has been the neutral site venue of the Army-Navy Game. In 2021 the series shifted to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, home of the NFL New York Giants and New York Jets. Lincoln Financial Field got the game back for 2022. Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots, will host America’s game this year.
Navy leads the series against Army 62-54-7. The Black Knights, though, have won five of the last seven meetings.
The difference-maker of the Army-Navy game is Black Knights head coach Jeff Monken. The Army was rendered helpless in their series against a successful Navy team until his arrival.
From 1989 through 2015, Army could muster only two bowl seasons. Monken took the Black Knights job, understanding that Army would fully invest in a winning football program. The Black Knights have taken control of their series with the Navy and have gone to bowl games in four of the past five seasons. In 2018, Army nearly upset the Oklahoma Sooners in an epic overtime loss indicative of their rapid improvement. The following year Army should have had could have won a double-overtime loss at the Big House against the Michigan Wolverines.
In recent years, Army has guarded the payout window quite effectively in their head-to-head series with Navy. The Black Knights have gotten the cash in eight of the most recent 12 meetings in this rivalry series. Since 2006, the Black Knights and Midshipmen had gone under the total EVERY SINGLE YEAR until the 2022 OT thriller.
It was Army winning 20-17 in overtime in 2022. It was the first-ever overtime game in the history of the Army-Navy game. Quinn Maretzki kicked the game-winning 39-yard field goal after he had sent the game into overtime with a 37-yarder late in the fourth quarter.
In 2021 Navy scored a 17-13 upset over Army as 7-point dogs, with the game going under the total of 35.5. The 2021 matchup was a great reminder of what makes the Army vs. Navy game so special. Army was bowl bound and enjoying another strong season. Navy was down and out with coaching turmoil and a 3-8 record. Yet Navy rose to the occasion and outplayed Army to score a 17-13 win. The game was a reminder as to why there are no sure things in this great service academy rivalry. And the game was a great demonstration of why Army vs. Navy draws massive TV ratings and is one of the most popular games on the college football calendar.
