Comments

Army-Navy is always a national attraction. A rare thing will happen on Saturday. Navy will play Army at West Point. This hasn’t happened since World War II. As for the actual game, I believe it’ll be fairly close. Of course, the availability/health of players could change this. I also expect not a large number of points to be scored. The reason for that is that these two teams both know how to defend each other’s offense. Despite recent setbacks, Navy seems to have improved as the season has progressed. Army has remained about the same but their quarterback issues are worrisome.

Prediction

Army 17, Navy 13

Saturday’s game kicks off at 3:00 PM ET. You can watch this football game on the CBS Network.
