Comments

Hopefully, the Army team has gotten over this stunning lopsided loss at Tulane. Now the Black Knights get another solid team in Georgia Southern, where Jeff Monken was once the head coach. I looked at the Georgia Southern depth chart they have a lot of juniors and seniors starting. Looking at their lines, the offensive line is about the normal size of a division I team. The defensive line is little smaller than most FBS lines. I think Army wins this one but it’ll likely be a fairly close game.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Army 34, Georgia Southern 24

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