Challenges for Army

In Western Kentucky Army will be facing a team with a very tough defense. WKU got off to a rough start but has since gotten things under control. Their win over a well-coached, solid UAB team is perhaps their most impressive win so far. It would be easy to look at the first game of the season for WKU and say, “Oh, they lost to an FCS team.” However, not taking the Hilltoppers seriously could be a big mistake. Army likely wins this game unless the Black Knights are still downcast over the loss to Tulane.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 7:00 ET. Watch on the Stadium Network.
