A quick note on Navy’s long and illustrious history of rematches.
That’s a joke, of course. It is not a deep list, or a particularly illustrious one.
If the Midshipmen had played Notre Dame or Army twice in a year, it’d be pretty cool. But they haven’t.
Nope, the only school Navy’s ever had a rematch with a single season is St. John’s.
So, since it’s easy to replicate, here are all of Navy’s single-season rematches – a list this year’s two meetings with Wake Forest will join after the Dec. 20 EagleBank Bowl. Navy beat the Demon Deacons 24-17 on Sept. 27.
Oct. 2: Navy 26-0
Oct. 16: Navy 12-0
Date unknown: St. John’s 6-4
Dec. 9: St. John’s 22-6
St. John’s 4-0
