Secretaries' Cup Game Set for Noon on ESPN3 on Nov. 11th

NEW LONDON, Conn. -- The Secretaries' Cup football Game on Nov. 11th between the Coast Guard and Merchant Marine will be streamed live from Cadet Memorial Field on ESPN3, beginning at noon.

For the first time since 2005 the Coast Guard Academy and the Merchant Marine Academy will meet for the Secretaries' Cup on the final week of the season. 

The two schools met in the final game of the regular season from 1991-2005 until Coast Guard joined the New England Football Conference, a two division conference which needed the last week of the season for a championship game, thus the game was moved to September. The game has similar pageantry as the Army-Navy game.
