The Army-Navy football rivalry began to heat up on Twitter on Thursday just two days before the two service academies square off on the gridiron.

The 110th Army-Navy game will take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Saturday. Navy is favored to win the game.

The NavyNews Twitter account made the first jab early Thursday morning:

@ilovemytroops Don't let them get to you - stay towards the light. You'll be glad you did late on Saturday! #GoNavy #BeatArmy

The Army's official account responded in the afternoon:

Beating Navy is without question, a top priority http://bit.ly/7RNHK6 #GoArmy #BeatNavy

It looks like the real score will have to be settled on the field this weekend.
