WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - The U.S. Military Academy is preparing for the annual Army-Navy football game this weekend.

Some West Point cadets will play in the traditional “Goat-Engineer” flag football games Wednesday evening. The name of the flag football game stems from the tradition of the bottom half of the class, the “goats,” playing the top half of the class, the “engineers.”

Male and female cadets play in separate games.

West Point’s Black Knights will face the Navy Midshipmen in the 120th Army-Navy game on Saturday in Philadelphia.
