Army Black Knights

 The Army Black Knights football program represents the United States Military Academy. They are one of the few NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision independent schools. Army was recognized as the national champions in 1944, 1945 and 1946.

General of the Army Douglas MacArthur wrote, "Upon the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that upon other fields, on other days, will bear the fruits of victory."

President of the United States and General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower and General of the Army Omar Bradley were on the 1912 Army football team. Eisenhower was injured and his football career was over by 1913, when the two future generals were juniors. Bradley, a star of the Army baseball team for four years, was on the field in 1913 when Notre Dame upset Army in an historic college football game in which the forward pass was used for the first time. Bradley played end opposite the legendary Knute Rockne, the Notre Dame end who later coached the Irish to national championships before dying in a plane crash near Bazaar, Kansas, on Easter Friday in 1931.

Three players from Army have won the Heisman Trophy: Doc Blanchard, Glenn Davis, and Pete Dawkins.
