Comments

This could be a close game. Tulane seems like a fairly good team but the four teams they have beaten average just under two wins. Consider also that Tulane has played an option team this season in Navy. I think Army will pull this one out. They’ve had an extra week to rest and get healthy. Army hasn’t had many road games so I believe the team will be very excited to be playing in New Orleans. Army wins but not by a lot.
