Army vs. Navy is one of the nation's most underrated rivalries in college football. The 118th meeting between the two schools brings together two academies that protect our country and its freedoms. Here's a breakdown of the two schools.
Running Game: Both schools love to pound the ball. A lot. In fact, both schools average over 300 rushing yards per game (Army averages 368.1 yards a game, while Navy averages 347.5 yards a game). Don't expect a lot of footballs to thrown through the air in this game. Both teams will run the triple-option offense with mobile quarterbacks at their disposal.
Last Five Games: Army has won four of their last five games, with their only loss coming in their last game against North Texas, 52-49. On the other hand, Navy has lost four of their last five games, with their only win in that stretch being a 43-40 victory over SMU on November 11th.
Dominance: Navy won 14 straight games in this rivalry before Army won last season. The Black Knights hold a 49-46-7 edge in the all-time series and are looking to start a little winning streak of their own.
Who Wins? It should be obvious, but this game will come down to who stops the run better. Still, this will be a fun game to watch. This will bring up memories of old-school, smash-mouth football. I will go with Army on this one. 24-17
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
