Comments

This is a game Army should dominate. WKU is just not very good this season. They lost to an FCS team in their opener.. at home. Army’s only concern is to not still be thinking about the Tulane loss. Army wins big in front of a big crowd of 101st Divison soldiers.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Army 31, Western Kentucky 10

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