          CBS Sports Network presents ARMY SPRING FOOTBALL MISSION: FORT BENNING, a behind-the-scenes look at Army’s 2012 spring football game at Fort Benning in Georgia. For the first time ever, the Black/Gold Game was moved from West Point and played in March at Doughboy Stadium, which was built in 1924 to honor the memory of infantry soldiers killed in World War I. The one-hour program debuts Saturday, April 14 (8:00 PM, ET).

          A clip from the show can be viewed here:

          ARMY SPRING FOOTBALL MISSION: FORT BENNING follows the Black Knights’ journey from West Point to Fort Benning on an Air Force C-17, an official military transport aircraft often used to deliver troops to operating bases and deployment areas. Fort Benning is the home of the U.S. Army’s ground forces and armored units. The cadets were provided the opportunity to meet the men they may one day be stationed alongside. CBS Sports Network also follows the Black Knights as they attend the infantry basic training graduation ceremony and visit the National Infantry Museum for a tour and pregame meal.
