Challenges for Army

Like every other college football team playing this season, Army has to deal with the COVID-19 threat which has changed the way a lot of teams practice. The programs that have been the most efficient and creative in the way they do the business of practice will have the best chances for game success.

On the field, Middle Tennessee junior quarterback Asher O’Hara is a solid, dual-threat quarterback. In 2019 O’Hara three for 2,616 yards with completing 210 of 335 passes for 20 scores. He also ran for 1,058 yards on 199 carries (5.3 ypc).
