TUCSON - Tucson's Marcus Edwards is chomping at the bit for one last shot at Army.

The 2015 Sabino High School grad will be Tucson's lone representative when Army and Navy square off on the gridiron for the 120th time on Saturday in Philadelphia.

Edwards was not active on the Midshipmen's varsity roster when Navy last beat Army in 2015. The Cadets have won America's rivalry the last three years.

Not to mention Edwards has not played in a game since October due to injury.

The senior defensive tackle is expected to be active and ready to go at Lincoln Financial Field for the 1 p.m. Tucson time kickoff.

He has eight career tackles in 19 games over the last two seasons for Navy.
