The Army Black Knights football team, previously known as the Army Cadets, represents the United States Military Academy in college football. Army is currently a Division I Football Bowl Subdivision member of the NCAA. The Black Knights currently play home games in Michie Stadium with a capacity of 38,000 at West Point, New York. The Black Knights are coached by Jeff Monken who is in his sixth season as head coach. Army is a five-time national champion, winning the title in 1914, 1916, and from 1944–1946.
With the exception of seven seasons where the team was a member of Conference USA, Army has competed as an independent, meaning that they have no affiliation with any conference. As of the next college football season in 2020, Army is one of seven FBS schools whose football teams do not belong to any conference, the others being BYU, Liberty, New Mexico State, Notre Dame, UConn, and UMass. However, for all other sports Army is primarily a member of the Patriot League.
Three players from Army have won the Heisman Trophy: Doc Blanchard, Glenn Davis, and Pete Dawkins.
