The U.S. Army Parachute Team, The Golden Knights, will perform before the 7pm championship game.

The two Golden Knights demonstration teams travel the United States performing for public audiences at venues ranging from small civic events to nationally televised events, such as NFL games, NASCAR races, and international air shows. Team members are from a variety of backgrounds in one of the 150 jobs in the U.S. Army.
The parachutists perform to exacting standards but may tailor their performance for a specific venue. The Golden Knights have an unparallelled safety record in the professional parachuting arena.
The Golden Knights also have competition teams who have won national and international competitions. They hold the current military world record in both male and female four-way freefall formation and the world record in canopy piloting speed. The Golden Knights tandem section provides tandem parachute jumps to approved local and national celebrities, media personnel, and VIPs. It was a Golden Knights team that jumped with the late President George H.W. Bush in 2007, 2012, and 2014.
The Golden Knights are headquartered at Fort Bragg, N.C.
