Comments

There may be odds for Army to win but I’m not convinced it will be that easy. Navy knows how to stop the Army option better than any other team. The same goes for Army in stopping the Navy offense. Both know how to defend each other. Army’s been pretty solid this season but the Black Knight defense is somewhat down this season. I think this will be close game with the Black Knights winning by less than a touchdown.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Army 17, Navy 14

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