The 116th edition of the Army-Navy game takes place inside Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday afternoon.
Navy saw their New Year’s 6 and AAC Title Game dreams go into shambles after falling to Houston by 21 a few weeks ago.
For Army, this will be their bowl game, as they have had a miserable season that has featured just 2 wins.
The Black Knights season has been in shambles from the opening kick off of the first game this season. Army has dropped 4 in a row and won just 2 games this season as they sit at 2-9.
Army’s wins have come against Eastern Michigan and Bucknell, neither of which were impressive.
The Black Knight’s come in off a 31-21 loss to Rutgers as they struggled mightily against the run. Rutgers RB Paul James rumbled for 116 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Black Knights defense will be in for a long day if they can’t figure out how to stop the run game. Army has allowed 330.1 yards per game on the ground this season. They’ll be going up against the 2nd best run offense in the nation.
The Black Knights have been a nightmare for backers this season. They are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 and are just 4-6-1 ATS on the season.
Navy was in the midst of one of their best seasons and needed just a win at Houston in the final week of the regular season to clinch a spot in the AAC Title Game. Had they done that and won the title game (what Houston did), Navy would have gained a spot in the New Years 6 Bowls.
However, Navy was torched by Greg Ward Jr. and fell by 21 to Houston. Now at 9-2, they’ll be on their way to the Military Bowl, where they will be at home against Pitt.
Navy has owned this head-to-head series. The Midshipmen have won 13 straight games against the Black Knights, but things have been more difficult as of late. Three of the last four Navy wins have been decided by 7 points or less.
To ensure themselves a 14th straight win in this rivalry, the Midshipmen will have to buckle down on defense. Against Houston, Navy allowed the Cougars to convert 16 of 19 on third down. Army specialized in that category against Rutgers as they had a success ratio on 3rd downs of 9 for 13.
Navy is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.
