Week 12 features two teams with strong records in the Army Black Knights and the North Texas Mean Green. This contest should come down to the wire, as the three-point home-favored line would likely be a push on a neutral field.
Army Black Knights
The Black Knights are having one of their best seasons in recent memory. At 8-2, they’re guaranteed a second straight season of at least eight wins, but prior to last year, they’d averaged just 3.1 wins per season since 2000.
Last week, the Black Knights earned their sixth win in a row by defeating Duke, 21-16.
Army was a three-point underdog in that game as well, which should give fans of the Black Knights plenty of hope going into this one.
So far this season, Army ranks 83rd on offense, as the team has averaged a total of 382.3 yards per contest.
The Black Knights are posting 351.5 yards rushing, as well as 30.8 yards passing entering Week 12.
Up to this point in the year, Army is a 2-2 team on the road. As the visiting team, the team is averaging 23.5 points per contest and is holding opponents to 17.8 points allowed.
North Texas Mean Green
If the Mean Green want to put together the blueprint to defeating Army, No. 1 on the whiteboard has to be “make them pass.”
The Black Knights are so reliant on the run game that if you can make them change their approach, they’re going to be forced into an uncomfortable situation.
How should they go about doing that? They have to use a QB spy. If you can take away their ability to use a scrambling quarterback, you take away a key part of their offense.
So far this season, the Mean Green rank 17th on offense, as they’re averaging 476.4 yards per contest. They are averaging 191.8 yards in the rushing game and 284.6 yards passing entering this contest.
At home this season, North Texas is 5-0 at home this season with a broken-down record of 6-1 versus conference foes and 1-2 against non-conference teams.
At home, the Mean Green are averaging 44.8 scoring, and holding teams to 26.2 points scored on defense.

The Mean Green should be able to keep the Black Knights from getting too comfortable in their option formation. The defense may not be quite good enough to force Army to throw at a rate much higher than they usually do, however, which means we could end up with a close game going to the road team.

Give this one to the Black Knights against the spread, but don’t be shocked if they come away with a narrow victory on the road as well.
