This game was played November 11, 1944 at Baltimore Stadium between the Navy Midshipmen and Cornell Big Red. The Navy Midshipmen won the matchup by a final score of 48-0. Bill the Goat is the mascot of the United States Naval Academy. In 1893, a live goat named El Cid made his debut as a mascot at the fourth Army–Navy Game. El Cid was a gift to the Brigade of Midshipmen from officers of the USS New York. With the goat, Navy gained a 6-3 win over Army that year, so he was adopted as part of the team. However, the goat has served without interruption since 1904. In the early 1900s, the beloved mascot was finally given a name. On the return trip to the Naval Academy after the Midshipmen triumphed over West Point, the goat was led on a victory lap through the train and did not leave the midshipmen until they reached Baltimore. It was then that the goat was given the name "Bill".
