College football's most unique game isn't going anywhere.
CBS Sports announced an exclusive-rights extension for the annual Army–Navy game that will keep the historic rivalry on their network through 2028. The game will continue to be the only FBS game played on the second Saturday in December, a change made in 2009.
"Army-Navy is more than a game, and it's an honor to continue broadcasting this epic annual event," said CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus in a release. "Moving the game in 2009 allowed us to further shine a spotlight on Army-Navy, as we tell the compelling stories on and off the field of the young people at the Service Academies. Army-Navy is a cornerstone of our college football programming and we could not be more proud to continue this relationship."
The service academies have met 117 times on the football field since their first meeting in 1890. Though the Midshipmen lead the all-time series 60-50-7, the Black Knight ended a 14-game series losing streak last year, knocking off Navy for the first time since 2001.
CBS Sports celebrated the extension with a video that will send shivers down your spine:
