Comments

This is a pretty decent MAC team. They opened with two straight games against power conference teams and almost beat Minnesota. I know what you are thinking. No, Cincinnati is not a member of a power conference team but they might as well be. The Bearcats are currently the No. 8 team in the nation according to the Associated Press and they are also headed to the Big 12.

Miami’s starting quarterback is Brett Gabbert. So far this season he has completed 24 of 45 passes for 372 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. I think Army wins this game but it probably won’t be as lopsided as some of the previous Army victories of 2021.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Army 31, Miami (Ohio) 17

Saturday’s game kicks off at Noon ET. You can watch this college football game on the CBS Sports Network.
