December’s Army-Navy game didn’t just mean new hardware for West Point.
CBS, the game’s longtime (and future) television home, took home three Sports Emmy awards last week for its broadcast of the rivalry clash, including Outstanding Live Sports Special and two awards for “The More Things Change,” a video introducing the contest:[facebook url=”https://www.facebook.com/CBSSports/videos/10155491432961773/”]
Other nominees for the live-event award included the World Series, the college football national title game, and British Open and Masters golf coverage. “The More Things Change” received honors for best post-produced audio and best musical direction. Get the full award list here.
While CBS uses its top-tier college football crew for the broadcast and traditionally adds patriotic flare, this year’s broadcast may have benefited from a snowy backdrop, eye-catching uniforms and a close contest that came down to a last-second missed field goal.
The 2018 contest will held Dec. 8 in Philadelphia and will air on CBS.
