Air Force Academy's football team visited The White House and President Donald Trump on Tuesday to celebrate winning The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy.

The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy recognizes the winner of the annual service-academy football rivalry. Air Force defeated Army and Navy this season to win the trophy on the way to a 10-3 season.

Air Force has won the trophy 20 times. Navy has won 15 times,  and Army has six titles. Navy won the trophy seven straight times from 2003-09, but Air Force has rallied to win four of the last seven and two of the past three.
