The regular season is over, all Conference Championships have been played and with these conclusions come the anticipation of what is to follow: Remaining selections for the nationally beloved bowl games, the highly anticipated first year of college football playoffs and let us not forgot what is right around the corner; the annual Army-Navy game, which is making its way back to Baltimore this Saturday!
