It would have been so much more fun to write this one up if Army hadn’t been actually able to beat Oklahoma last week. As it is they have to definitely have the attention of a Bulls team that is playing really well.
The Bulls are going to be an interesting case from here on out. An undefeated season might actually be within the realm of possibility. They are likely to be favoured in the rest of their games, especially if they keep winning.
Army Black Knights
The truth is there is really no way that Army should be competing with Oklahoma the way they did last week. I love it but it shouldn’t happen. The offense should have some success due to unfamiliarity but the defense should eventually get run over of through. It just never happened so it was a great coaching job.
Army was able to stay in the game because they never let the Oklahoma offense get going. That enabled they to stay within themselves to the tune of 339 rushing yards but they only average 4.3 per carry. This is a disciplined group for sure but they only know one way to play.
Even though they did not get the win this is classic letdown spot. They lost in overtime in a game that grabbed everyone imagination. Buffalo is definitely not Oklahoma in terms of talent but their offense is really humming right now. They played a close game against the Bulls a year ago.
Per the intro this Buffalo team is good and they might not have anyone on their schedule to prove otherwise. If that happens it will be as shame about their schedule. The only Power 5 team is Rutgers and they are in name only. Too bad football doesn’t have those Bracke Buster weeks.
Tyree Jackson is a monster. He is 6’7″ and has the look of a guy who will get a shot in the NFL at some point. Not only can he fling it but he is also a good athlete. He already has more touchdown passes than he threw a year ago and might get some Heisman pub if they keep undefeated.
This is a revenge spot for the Bulls and you would think the Army performance last week got their attention. Not really sure what kind of atmosphere UB Stadium offers but the early time slot can sometimes be a sleepy one for teams and Army is not a team you want to be sleepy against.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Pick
This could be a very entertaining game with Buffalo likely very able to move the ball through the air and Army having success running the ball. Last year it was a low scoring contest though, 21-17.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Buffalo -7
If you like the Bulls than you have to love what Army did last week. It adds some juice to a game that otherwise few might have tuned in for. I am a fan of what the Bulls are doing this season and like them in this spot.
Sitting on a key number I do not see there being enough action to really move this line during the week. Awesome teaser spot opportunity with the home team though.
