Challenges for Army

Army plays their third and final FCS opponent of the 2020 season hosting the Mercer Bears. Most Army supporters are probably rolling their eyes at the thought of Mercer mounting any kind of threat to defeat Army. That’s what we thought about under-manned The Citadel. In that game, Army found themselves deep in the fourth quarter with less than a touchdown lead over the Bulldogs. The Black Knights and everyone associated with the Army program need to take this game seriously.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 1:30 PM ET. Watch on the CBSSN network.
