Comments

This Mercer team could be dangerous. They have an experienced QB back from 2019. They lost by six points to a Jacksonville State team that gave Florida State fits before falling. Mercer has a very good running back in Tyray Devezin who ran for over 1,000 yards last season. They have kick returner who took the season-opening kickoff 103 yards for a TD. All that said, I think Army wins.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Army 42, Mercer 7
