One of the most celebrated games of the college football season will mark the end of regular season play this Saturday as Army (8-3) takes on Navy (6-5) in Philadelphia.

ESPN's College GameDay will broadcast from the site before the game, which will kickoff at 3 p.m. EST at Lincoln Financial Field.

It will be a wintry scene in Philadelphia as a few inches of snow will fall on Saturday.

The steadiest snow will hold off until the early afternoon with temperatures hovering in the low to mid-30s during the day.

The snow could make traction difficult for the players and the football slick at times.

Winds up to 12 mph won't impact play but will make it feel even colder. Fans should be prepared and dress in warm layers as AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures will only be in the 20s.

The Black Knights will be looking for their second consecutive victory over the Midshipmen. Army's 2016 victory ended a 14-game losing streak to Navy, which began back in 2002.
