ACU quarterback Gavin Patterson was decent in the Wildcat’s opener completing 15 of 25 passes for 195 yards. ACU nearly beat an FBS opponent in Week 1 (UTEP) so Army had better not overlook this team. I don’t see that happening though. Army wins big. Prediction

Army 42, Abilene Christian 7

Saturday’s game kicks off at 1:30 pm ET. Watch on the CBS Sports Network.
