Week 3 Service Academy Football Predictions

U.S. Flag

Navy has the week off to lick their wounds while Army hosts UConn and Air Force hosts Utah State.

Week Results: 2-0. Navy was still not good at all.

Closest Pick: I was 21 total points off of the Army vs. Western Kentucky game. Two weeks ago the Army defense was way better than I expected. This time they were way worse than I expected as I got the Army point total correct at 38, but the Hilltoppers went way above my prediction of 14 to finish with 35.
Season Results: 4-1 (80%). Last week I was stuck at (66.7%).

Air Force vs. Utah State – The Aggies are better than they have been in years, while Air Force is coming into this one with plenty of momentum after a dominating win over Navy. The defense was the key in that game – as it will be again here – as the Falcons continue to bed in five new offensive line starters in an offensive style that demands cohesion. The Aggies will look for explosive plays against the Air Force defense to win, while the Falcons will grind it out and play the long game in their hunt for victory. I think that Air Force sneaks this one. Air Force 31, Utah State 27.

Army vs. UConn – Army welcomes a UConn team to West Point with an interim head coach, a quarterback situation that is an absolute disaster, and that has scored zero points in two games against FBS teams so far this season. The Huskies also lost to Holy Cross and they average less than 200 yards of offense per game this season Army could put up 200 yards on the ground in each half with the time of possession advantage that they will have here as they cruise to a big win. Army 48, UConn 0.
