Annual Army-Navy Game Takes Center Stage Next Saturday Afternoon

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/8/2014 9:07:45 PM

The Navy Midshipmen are 6-5 on the year and rank second in the country with a ground attack that averages 357 yards per game. Even more impressive is the fact that they played the Ohio State Buckeyes and Notre Dame Fighting Irish this season, and finished the game against the Buckeyes with 370 rushing yards and a 5.9 yards per carry average. The Army Black Knights come in with a record below .500, but they also rely on a rushing attack that averages more than 300 yards on the ground per game, making this match-up between two very similar squads.

Navy Midshipmen @ Army Black Knights

Saturday December 13, 2014 – 3 PM ET

Odds: Navy -15

What To Watch For From The Navy Midshipmen

Navy has thrown the ball just 115 times all season long and figure to keep that number low this coming Saturday against another run dominant Army squad. They've relied heavily on Keenan Reynolds to carry the load as the quarterback leads the team with 205 carries for 1,082 yards. The team's leading running back is Noah Copeland, a big fullback who's averaging 8.2 yards per carry this season and has already ran for a career-high 859 yards. Navy has been able to move the ball on the ground and score points against all their opponents this season, even the ranked ones, which is why it's expected they run all over the Army Black Knights this Saturday and try their best to cover a 15-point spread. The Navy defense has been nothing special this season, holding opponents to under 20 points just once, which makes this match-up a toss up because of the two plus touchdown spread.

What To Watch For From The Army Black Knights

The Black Knights haven't even thrown the football 100 times this season, and just like the Midshipmen they're also a squad that has a running quarterback who's leading the team in carries and has a shot at finishing the season with over 1,000 yards on the ground. Angel Santiago is the senior signal-caller for Army, and with just three career touchdown passes it's obvious he wont be airing out the ball this coming Saturday. This is a game where you can expect 80 or more combined rushing attempts, which makes for a interesting match-up as the team who breaks more long runs is the one who likely will end up on top. Army's offense hasn't been as consistent as that of the Midshipmen, meaning this game could get out of hand early if Navy comes out ready to play.

Prediction

One of the most prestigious college football games of the year will be showcased this weekend and although the Navy Midshipmen are the easy pick to win the game, they aren't the easy sports betting pick as a 15-point spread will be no easy task to cover. Navy is already in a bowl game, whereas the Black Knights aren't and will treat this match-up as their season finale. While Army is the obvious underdog, both team's will move the ball at a slower pace this weekend and finish with a tightly contested score.

Pick: Army
