Challenges for Army

Army has to get past this loss at Tulane. Yes, it stunk, but the Black Knights have another good team up next in 6-2 Georgia Southern. This is a team that is very familiar with the option. They are familiar not because they’ve played an option opponent but because they run that offense. Yes, GSU is looking solid but their schedule is also fairly week. One common opponent is Louisana-Monroe, an 0-8 team. Army won 37-7 and GSU won 35-30. To win this Army needs to have improved quarterback play.

Saturday’s game kicks off at Noon PM ET. Watch on the CBS Sports network.
