One of the most iconic college football games is set to take place at Gillette Stadium this weekend. The famed Army vs Navy game has finally arrived, a game that most college football fans have circled on their calendars. Given that this game is taking place at Gillette Stadium, it would make sense that someone or multiple people from the Patriots organization would attend this game.
ESPN's college gameday will not only be there, but they have landed the perfect person to be their guest picker this weekend. Patriots head coach and general manager Bill Belichick will join the set of college gameday to pick this game.
With Bill Belichick having a connection to the military and the Patriots having already played on Thursday, it's no wonder he was sought out to make an appearance.
Even though Belichick never served in the military himself; he has a deep connection to it. His father served in the Navy during World War II and coached for 30 years at the Navy. Also, Bill Belichick grew up in Annapolis, which gives many an idea of who Belichick might pick to win this weekend.
However, the one thing that will be interesting and a must-see on TV will be Belichick's dynamic with the crew, especially Pat McAfee. Given McAfee's crazy antics, something could be afoot when these two collide on Saturday.
As for the game itself, Army is a three-point favorite as both Army and Navy are entering this all-time classic with the same season record of 5-6. Someone will walk away with a .500 record, and someone will finish with a losing record. Last year, the Army came out the winner over the Navy in a double overtime battle with a final score of 20-17. The Navy will be looking for revenge, and with Belichick in the house, it would not be surprising to see Navy pull off the win.
Overall, though, this should be a very entertaining game for all to see.
