The Army Black Knights and Navy Midshipmen football teams have faced off on the field 114 times, and every year since 1930.

But this year, the game will be presented in a way that it never has before, as ESPN's College Gameday crew will head to Baltimore, Maryland for their weekly show, they announced on Saturday.

The two teams have struggled this season - Army sits at 3-6 while Navy is far from pre-season expectations at 4-5, but the historic annual match-up is unlike any other event in college football.

The cheapest tickets left for the Army-Navy match-up on Stub Hub run around $120, but attending or watching College Gameday is free. Baltimore is a neutral site, but not too far from the Midshipmen's home turf in Annapolis.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Chris Fowler and and the gang will be setting up shop in Baltimore's Inner Harbor and will broadcast the show from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on ESPN before the game kicks off at 3 p.m. on CBS.

The last time College Gameday was at an Army game was in 2003, when they broadcast from West Point  prior to the Black Knights' game against South Florida. The ESPN crew has never held College Gameday in Annapolis or at any site where the Midshipmen have played.

Will Corso put on a Billy Goat head, or a Black Knight helmet? We'll find out in 35 days.
