#44 Army Black Knights – 11-2 in 2018
Every listing of potential teams needs a dark horse. Army was one of the surprising teams last year because not only did they win, they won big. They had a nine-game win streak towards the end of their season including a 70-14 blowout win against the Houston Cougars in the Armed Forces Bowl. Army even gave the Oklahoma Sooners a huge scare before they lost with a 28-21 overtime score. This triple-option offensive unit can be very unpredictable. Quarterback Kelvin Hopkins Jr. was the first player in the program’s history to rush and pass for over 1,000-yards separately. Now Hopkins is a senior and looking to add more firepower to the Black Knights.

In the entire 47-years of the Commander-In-Chief Trophy, the Black Knights have only won the trophy eight times. Head coach Jeff Monken has his team hungry for much more than the CIC Trophy. The Black Knights return seven starters on an offense that was ranked second in rushing yards per game (312.5) and 35th in scoring offense (32.8). If their offense is up to sync, the Black Knights can account for a 12-1 regular season record. The week two trip to Ann Arbor to face the Michigan Wolverines will be a tough matchup to handle. If they can create a tough matchup for the Wolverines as they did for the Sooners last season, then Army will be a fun team to watch this upcoming season.
