The Lockheed Martin Commanders’ Classic, presented by USAA will be the first college football game at Globe Life Field and features a traditional rivalry of United States Service Academies, Army West Point (4-3), and Air Force (6-2).
This will be the next game for both teams as each has a bye this coming Saturday.
The two-year agreement at Globe Life Field begins on November 6 with Air Force as the home team.
Army will be the home squad for the return meeting on November 5, 2022.
Air Force leads the all-time series, 37-17-1. Army won the 2020 meeting, 10-7 at West Point’s Michie Stadium to earn its ninth Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy, which has been presented annually since 1972 to the winner of the season’s series between Air Force, Army, and Navy. Air Force can clinch its 21st Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy with a victory over Army on November 6. The Falcons defeated Navy, 23-3 on September 11. The Army-Navy game is scheduled for December 11 at East Rutherford, NJ.
The Falcons and Black Knights have played just three times previously at a neutral site, 1959 (13-13 tie) in New York’s Yankee Stadium and 1963 (Army, 14-10) and 1965 (Air Force, 14-3) at Chicago’s Soldier Field.
