SportsPulse: COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on much of the U.S. economy. How has it impacted college football coaches? According to our annual coaches compensation database, head coaches at Power Five conferences haven't taken a big hit.


For the first time since 1943, one of college football's most iconic rivalries will be played on a school's campus. 

The Army Black Knights and Navy Midshipmen will play its game at the U.S. Military Academy's West Point, New York campus on Dec. 12, both schools' athletic directors said in a release Friday. 

Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles, had been scheduled to host the contest, but the schools are adjusting "due to attendance limits placed on outdoor events in the state of Pennsylvania that would not allow the entire Corps of Cadets and Brigade of Midshipmen to attend.”

Due to attendance limits, Army-Navy game moved from Philadelphia to West Point

"We want to thank the City of Philadelphia, the Eagles and all involved in the planning for their efforts to navigate this historic game in the current COVID-19 climate," Army athletic director Mike Buddie said a statement. "We are excited about this historic opportunity to host Navy and the Brigade inside the gates of West Point for the first time since 1943."

Army was the designated home team in this year's game, the 121st iteration of the rivalry (Navy leads the all-time series 61-52 and snapped Army's three-year win streak last year). 

The release also noted that fan attendance at Michie Stadium aside from the Cadets and Midshipmen is unlikely.
