The first championship was won against Notre Dame while the war was still going on but by the time Army lined up against Notre Dame again for the championship in 1945, the war was over. Due to the war itself, no college coach had ever had the talent on one team that Army did during the war years.<p>In 1944, Army went undefeated and won each game with an average score of 56-4. In 1945, Army gained an average of eight yards after every snap. The average score of their nine wins in 1945 slipped a bit to 46-5, but remembering what Notre Dame teams have done to them in the past, they treated Notre Dame very harshly. Facing the second-ranked Fighting Irish at Yankee Stadium, Army crushed them, 48-0.
