MINOS and NOνA are two long-baseline neutrino experiments situated along Fermilab's recently upgraded high-intensity NuMI neutrino source. MINOS has capped its long and successful run with a joint analysis of its complete beam and atmospheric neutrino and antineutrino data sets, providing new constraints on Δm^2_(32) and θ_(23). MINOS has also produced new limits on light sterile neutrinos in the disappearance channel and on non-standard interactions. NOνA is a next-generation experiment whose 14-kton detector uses a highly active, finely segmented design that offers superb event identification capability. NOνA became fully operational last year and will provide new constraints on (or first measurements of) θ_(23), Δm^2_(32), the neutrino mass hierarchy, and the CP-violating phase δ. In this article, we review the most recent MINOS results, the outlook for MINOS+, and the broad physics scope of NOνA.
