In the weeks leading up to the annual Army-Navy rivalry football game, both United States military branches took to social media to share playful videos poking fun at their competition.

In one video, a cadet at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point is seen preparing for “game day” by training with a football held tightly in his hands as he crawls under barbed wire and jumps over barricades.

One man then turns to another and says, “I wonder what Navy is doing to get ready.” The video quickly cuts to an apparent midshipman wearing children’s inflatable water wings who clumsily slips off of an inner tube and into a pool while trying to reach for a football.

In another video, Navy midshipmen “broke into” the Pentagon to “leave a little surprise” for the Army secretary. The United States Naval Academy also posted a video that lists “The Top 10 Army Cadets.”

Here’s a look at some of the videos:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Saturday, Army defeated Navy 15-0 in a historic game that brought the rivalry back to West Point for the first time in 77 years. President and Commander in Chief Donald Trump performed the game’s coin toss, flipping tails and giving Navy the advantage.
