We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at Michie Stadium, at West Pointj. The Fordham Rams come to town to take on the Army Black Knights.
The two teams have played three times since 2011. In the last game in 2015 Fordham pulled the big upset winning by a final score of 37-35.
The Fordham Rams are an FCS level school that come into this season ranked 22nd in the preseason polls. The Rams play in the Patriot league and according to the latest coaches polls are projected to finish second in the conference behind Lehigh.
Quarterback Kevin Anderson returns for his fifth year on campus, and is the heart and soul of this team. He was picked to the All Patriot League last year, and I would expect the same this year.
Last year he threw for 2724 yards and 27 touchdowns. Those stats are actually down from the year before, but he had to sit out two years ago to injury.
For the Rams to pull the upset in this game, Anderson is going to have to be on his game. I would think he will need to throw for at least 300 yards and a couple of scores just to keep the Rams close.
The good thing for the Rams is he is a veteran leader. If it ends up being a close game against the Black Knights, he will make the right decisions.
Army Black Knights
The Army Black Knights come into this season with a lot of confidence, and full of high hopes. They finished with an 8-3 record and that included a win over Navy, which is like their Super Bowl.
Like most of the military schools Army’s strength is going to be running the ball. Last year they finished second in the nation in running and it should be no different this year.
Led by quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw and full back Andy Davidson they should have no issue running down opposing teams throats.
They will really work the clock and try to make it a real grind it out game. The less possessions each team has the better as for as Army is concerned.
As good as the running game is, the defense will just be as good this year. They finished fourth in the nation last year, and with almost all the starters back, it should be the same this year.
