NEW YORK (AP) — This season’s Army-Navy game was the highest-rated in 15 years.

The Midshipmen’s 17-10 win Saturday, their 13th straight in the series, averaged a preliminary national rating of 4.1 with a 10 share on CBS. The network said Tuesday that’s up 5 percent from last year and the highest since 1999.

Ratings represent the percentage of homes with televisions tuned to a program. Shares measure the percentage of TVs in use at the time.
