CBS Sports, the United States Military Academy and the Naval Academy announced Thursday an agreement to continue their broadcast partnership for the famed football game between the two institutions through 2028.

That means the game will continue to be on WHIO-TV locally.

It has been held on the second Saturday of December for the past eight years, capping the college football regular season.

“Army-Navy is more than a game, and it’s an honor to continue broadcasting this epic annual event,” CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said in a statement. “Moving the game in 2009 allowed us to further shine a spotlight on Army-Navy, as we tell the compelling stories on and off the field of the young people at the Service Academies.

“Army-Navy is a cornerstone of our college football programming and we could not be more proud to continue this relationship.”
