We have reached week five of the college football season, which seems the time some teams really start to separate themselves.
It’s a big showdown at Michie Stadium in West Point, New York. The UTEP Miners make the trip and look for their first win they take on the Army Black Knights.
Not many people expected the University of Texas- El Paso Miners to have much success this season and so far they have lived up to those low expectations.
They come into this game with a 0-4 record and they were only favored in one of those games and that was only by a point and a half.
In the other three games they were underdogs by at least 17 points. The Miners issues have been on both sides of the ball.
They have given up at least 31 points in each game, and their highest scoring total in a game was only 16. If they want to win this game they are going to need to score more then 16 and give up less then 31 points.
A lot of the issues for the Miners have been because they don’t have a quarterback. They are doing a quarterback by committee type of rotation and in some of the games so far all three of the guys have played.
To win this game it needs to start offense. They need to try and get some sort of rhythm going in this game and maybe that could translate into giving the defense some confidence.
Army Black Knights
On the other side of this match up is the Army Black Knights won won the first two games of the season, but then reeled off two straight losses and come into this game on a losing streak.
The offense has struggled scoring points the last couple of weeks and that has led to the losses. For the Army and the offense it all comes down to running the ball.
So far this season they are only averaging nine yards per game through the air. They are averaging 366.2 yards per game on the ground.
On the defensive side of the ball they have played well in games that it was a fair match up. They struggled slowing down the Buckeyes offense but most teams have had that issue.
To win this game a couple of things need to happen. They need to pound the rock, and really try to control the clock through the game, something that usually goes hand in hand.
If they can wear down the Miners defense on the ground they should have no issue winning this game and moving to 3-2 on the season.
