Comments

Army hosts a dangerous Tulane team on Saturday. Two weeks ago Tulane pulled off an amazing home win over Houston. They’ve had a bye week to prepare for Army. This one worries me for Army but I think Army’s very strong defense coupled with the likely return of QB Kelvin Hopkins will be the difference in this one. The old Army, pre-Monken teams would lose this one for sure.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Army 24, Tulane 14

Saturday’s game kicks off at Noon ET. Watch on the CBS Sports Network.
