This matchup features two branches of our Armed Forces. The Army Black Knights are an Independent, while the Air Force Falcons play in the Mountain West Conference.
Last year the Black Knights shut out the Falcons 21-0. This was their first win over Air Force since 2012, so they will be looking to earn a second consecutive win over their rivals.
Air Force Falcons
Air Force comes into this game in danger of not being eligible to play in a bowl game. They already have 5 losses so another loss this week will mean that they will need to win out.
One thing the Falcons have seen success in this season is their rushing offense. They are 8th in the country with 255.8 rushing yards per game. They currently have 8 different players who have 100 rushing yards or more. Army have a very good run defense, so it will be key for the Falcons to establish the run game.
Run defense is the strong point of this Falcons defense. They allow 108.4 rushing yards per game, which ranks at 16th in the country. If the Falcons can force the Black Knights to pass the ball, they will have the advantage.
Army Black Knights
Both the Black Knights’ loses have come to power 5 teams earlier this season, but the Black Knights played especially well against Oklahoma. They have already clinched bowl eligibility, so now they will just be trying to finish their season strong and get a win over the other military branches.
Army is also a run first team, except they have had more success than Air Force this year. They are averaging 314.6 yards per game, which is 2nd best in all of division one football. If Army is unable to get the run game going they will be in trouble because they only average 91.4 passing yards per game.
Just like Air Force, the run defense for Army is also very good. They rank 7th in the country in rushing yards allowed per game, and they allow an average of 96.9. Since Air Force is also a run team, Army should be able to slow them down.
