12 October 2021

Saturday, October 9th, the Navy Midshipmen, and nationally ranked Southern Methodist University (SMU) Mustangs will face off at the Navy-Marine Corp Memorial Stadium for the 23rd time in series history. The game starts at 3:30pm, and as part of the opening ceremony, Team Fastrax™ will gracefully jump in with their majestic 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag.

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™ said, “We are honored to be performing our patriotic American Flag skydive for the Navy football game. After such a significant game against UCF last week, we’re hoping the Midshipmen can keep up the momentum with another AAC win.”

According to the Midshipmen website, Navy leads the all-time series 13-9, including a 4-2 mark against the Mustangs in AAC games. Navy is 6-3 all-time in games played against SMU in Annapolis. The SMU contest is the third of five-consecutive games in which the Mids will play against the top-five teams in the AAC Preseason Poll. SMU was picked third behind Cincinnati and UCF in the preseason poll.
