Games involving service academies rarely feature many physical altercations, as both teams spend their time off the field helping to defend our country.
Sure, some good old-fashioned trash talk takes place, but that’s to be expected. It’s rare that the back-and-forth ever develops into anything more.
It did after Saturday’s Army-Air Force game, though, when players from both teams swarmed the field after the final whistle. A shoving match was how it started, then it escalated into a bit more.
Cooler heads eventually prevailed, but Army got the last laugh, winning the Commander in Chief trophy for the second consecutive year.
