Posted: Dec 10, 2016 9:05 AM

President-elect Donald Trump will attend his first Army-Navy football game on Saturday, his transition team announced.

Trump will split his time between the two sides, spending one half with Army fans, another half with Navy supporters, a tradition among Commanders in Chief. 

Dwight D. Eisenhower is the only president to have played in the game, and Theodore Roosevelt was the first president to attend the game, splitting his time between the two sides. 

The 2016 game will be played at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium and marks the first time since 2010 that both teams enter the game with winning records - Army (6-5) and Navy (9-3). Navy has won the past 14 games, holding a 60-49-7 edge over Army.

The game kicks off at 3 p.m. on CBS.
