Cincinnati’s head coach is Luke Fickell who has been with the Bearcats since the 2017 season. Cincinnati’s quarterback is Desmond Ridder. During the 2019 season he passed for 2,184 yards while completing 55 percent of his passes with 18 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. Ridder also ran for over 600 yards. The last time Cincinnati faced an option team (Navy) was in 2018. Cincinnati won that game 42-0. That was the season that Navy finished a paltry 3-9. This will one of Army’s toughest games of the season but look for the Black Knights to prevail and improve to 3-0.
