Saturday, December 6, 2008. (AP) -- Army's cool new dress code resulted in the same old loss against Navy.

With President George W. Bush in attendance, Shun White ran for 147 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead Navy over Army 34-0 Saturday for its seventh straight win in the storied rivalry between service academies.

Army (3-9) debuted camouflage helmets, pants and uniform numbers, and the backs of their jerseys had the words "Duty. Honor. Country."

Army's uniform makeover was sharper than its play. Bowl-bound Navy (8-4) improved to 53-49-7 in the one of the greatest rivalries in college sports.
