DALLAS, TX – December 1, 2015 – The United States Naval Academy and the United States Military Academy will match-up for the 116th time on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015 to continue what is one of the most prominent rivalries in college football history. The annual meeting caps the NCAA football regular season.
Navy will commemorate this high profile game with a special edition “Damn the Torpedoes” Official Game Football that highlights a famous paraphrased quote from Navy commander David Farragut, who said “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead” in the Battle of Mobile Bay.
This exclusive, high-quality football from Big Game USA will feature a navy and grey image of a U.S. Naval ship with the words “DAMN THE TORPEDOES” stamped underneath. This specially designed ball is handcrafted with premium pebbled cowhide and created to the exact specifications requested by the Navy quarterbacks and coaching staff, a unique service that Big Game offers to both colleges and high schools throughout the country.
Own this one-of-a-kind keepsake that honors a rivalry that first kicked off in 1890, totaling to 115 match-ups, including 85 straight seasons dating back to 1930.
These footballs are available in extremely limited quantity. Each previous Navy special edition gameball, including the “Big Anchor” and “Don’t Tread On Me” footballs, sold out quickly, so get your hands on one today while there’s still time.
Be sure to tune into CBS on Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. when the Navy Midshipmen go for 14th straight victories over Army, equipped with their “Damn the Torpedoes” football.
