Army-Navy football game nominated for a Sports Emmy
Last season's Army-Navy football game proved to be an instant classic. It might also be worthy of an award.
CBS' coverage of the game, the 113th installment of the rivalry, has been nominated for a Sports Emmy for Outstanding Live Sports Special. The Army-Navy showdown is up against the Indianapolis 500, the World Series, the Masters and Super Bowl XLVI for the award.
The winner will be announced May 7.
Of course, being part of the award would be bittersweet for Army. The Black Knights were on the verge of upsetting their arch-rival in the Dec. 8, 2012, game before Navy scored a touchdown on an 8-yard run by Keenan Reynolds with 4:41 to play. The Midshipmen won 17-13.
