Saturday, November 17th brings you NCAA football action as the Colgate Raiders travel to West Point to take on the famed Army Black Knights at Michie Stadium.
Both teams are coming off of wins in their last games as Colgate kept their streak alive by beating Lehigh 48-6, while the Black Knights beat Lafayette 31-13. Colgate comes into this game with a perfect road record, but Army has yet to lose a game at West Point,
The Colgate Raiders are putting their perfect season on the line on Saturday as they come into their game with Army as 10 point underdogs on the road. The Raiders haven’t played a close game since all the way back on September the 8th, when they squeaked by New Hampshire 10-3.
The Raiders stifling defense has only given up more than 7 points once on the year, and that was back on week one to Holy Cross, when they allowed 17. Colgate has given up only 23 points on the year, have had 5 shutouts, and their point differential is an incredible 264 points.
Last week they held Lehigh to only 48 rushing yards on 26 carries, while they themselves used their run heavy offense to rack up 313 yards on the ground on 52 attempts for an average of 6 yards per rush. The Raiders only took to the air 14 times, completing 8 of those passes for 146 yards.
Army Black Knights
Army comes into this game winners of six straight, in fact you have to go back to September 22nd for the last Black Knights loss, an overtime thriller against #6 Oklahoma. Their only other loss on the year came in week one against Duke, when they lost 34-14.
The Black Knights have played a lot of close games this year, but have managed to come away with the win in most of them. The Raiders, and their running game, might be a real test for this Army defense.
Last week against Lafayette, the Black Knights held the Leopards to just 159 yards. 76 through the air and 83 on the ground, so their defense is quite capable of shutting down an opponent, but I’m not sure they can completely stop a team that runs the ball 50+ times a game.

Free Week 12 NCAA Football Pick
This will be a game that is won on the ground, as both teams opted to run the ball 50 or more times last week. The defenses will have their work cut out for them in this game.

Colgate has had it pretty easy this year, but I don’t think they can come into West Point and bully the Black Knights around like they have done to the rest of their opponents. But, I do think they will make this one interesting.
Take Army to win the game, but take Colgate to cover the spread. The betting total is awfully low in this one, but Army has the advantage if this stays UNDER the number, so maybe go that rout.
