It’s that time year again! Army Black Knights football time. The first opponent of the 2019 season is Rice. Rice is ranked dead last in the ESPN FPI. This is a game that Army should win handily. It’ll feel great to be 1-0 on Friday night. Maybe the Corps will get a long weekend pass.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Army 48, Rice 10

Friday’s game kicks off at 6:00 PM ET. Watch on the CBS Sports network.
