The Liberty Flames are looking to keep their flame alive as they head into Michie stadium to take on an Army team that is looking for some revenge.
The Army Black Knights are looking to keep their heads high as they got thrown around by Duke last week and need a win within the next couple of days.
The Liberty Flames are looking to keep their offensive performance sky high as they are coming off a huge 52-10 win over old Dominion. The Flames defense was started on the right foot as well as Old Dominion came into the game with high hopes of unleashing a new running game where the are hoping for over 200 plus yards on the ground.
The Flames quickly put out that idea as they held the hopeful Old Dominion running game to only 129 rushing yards on 39 attempts. Old Dominion had their only plan on offense fall apart quickly as the Flames did an excellent job. Now Liberty will look to do the same as they take on the Army who has the same game plan.
On the offensive side of the ball for the Flames, it was a huge charge led by quarterback Stephen Calvert. The veteran quarterback led the fast tempo charge with completing 25 of his 36 passes for 345 yards and four touchdowns. The Flames can easily expose the Black Knights secondary if Calvert can do the same on Saturday.
Army Black Knights
The Army West Point Black Knights are looking for a rebound game as they attempt to overcome their week 1 loss against the Duke Blue Devils. In the 24-14 loss, the defense had no answer to the slow and steady attack of the Devils as they had possession for over 60% of the time. With that in mind, the Black Knights were forced to throw the ball a lot and could not change the tempo of the game into their own liking.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Black Knights allowed 184 rushing yards on 35 attempts as that will be a necessary fix against the Liberty Flames who will run all over them. On the offensive side of the ball, quarterback Kelvin Hopkins completed half of his throws for 197 passing yards along with one touchdown.
The Black Knights have struggled in the past as home opening favorites as they come into this game with not covering the spread in their past three home openers.
