Comments

Army should win this one handily. The Keydets have trouble stopping the run but they can churn out points themselves so they will get some points. One thing Army should try to work on in this game is their opponent third down conversion rate. It’s been horrid this season and mostly the blame for many of the Cadet’s losses.
