Every time one of our Midshipmen student-athletes dons the Navy Blue and Gold, he or she represents the Brigade of Midshipmen, United States Naval Academy, United States Navy & Marine Corps, and the United States of America. By virtue of the more than 250 radio broadcasts, local, regional and national television broadcasts and countless print and electronic media articles rendered, they know they are competing on a national stage.
The Navy football program has had 134-consecutive games televised by either CBS, NBC, ABC, CBS Sports Network, Fox Sports Network, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPNEWS or ESPN3.
Whether it is CBS, CBS Sports Network, Showtime, ESPN, the Washington Post or the Annapolis Capital, the varsity athletic programs at the United States Naval Academy are given the platform to tell the much bigger story of our United States Navy & Marine Corps.
The national exposure given to our athletic programs is invaluable to our overall mission and with the 2015 move of the football program to the AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE, it has increased substantially.
