Army Cadets Successfully Kidnap Navy’s Goat Mascot On Second Attempt

Field overview of the Navy versus Notre Dame game on October 28, 2006


The Army-Navy rivalry is one of the best rivalries in college football. Army made waves recently by kidnapping the wrong goat when looking to steal the Navy mascot.

However, their second attempt was more successful in bringing home the right goat.

The Army cadets successfully kidnapped Bill No. 36 and Bill No. 37, who share duties as the mascot of the Midshipmen. Kidnapping mascots had long been banned after a prank turned a little sideways that involved helicopters and Army employees being kidnapped.

Both teams will look their best when they meet for the 122nd time. Navy leads the all-time series 61-53-7, but Army has the bragging rights from last season, blanking Navy 15-0.

The rivalry has had the last official weekend of the college football season for some time, and it deserves the stage it gets.

Fans of college football love to choose sides between the two longtime rivals. Even Bill Belichick got in on the fandom during his interview after the Patriots win on Monday Night Football. During his interview, Belichick was sporting a Navy mask, telling everyone where his allegiance stands during the big time.

Belichick’s father, Steve Belichick, served in the Navy and later turned to coaching where he was an assistant coach for the Midshipmen for 34 years after serving in World War II.

Fans have been treated to many good college football games this year and should expect this game to be no different.
