The Army Black Knights and Air Force Falcons face off on Saturday in an all-military college football showdown at Globe Life Park. When these two teams faced off in 2020 the final score was 10-7.
The Army Black Knights come into this game with a 4-3 record overall and they are coming off a loss in their last game against Wake Forest. Army was able to score 56 points, but the defense gave up 70 points, and that led to the defeat. Army is averaging 34.6 points while the defense is giving up 27.7 points per game. Army runs the option attack and is averaging 312.3 yards per game on the ground. Starting quarterback Christian Anderson is dealing with an arm injury, and it’s unclear if he is going to be able to go in this game. Anderson has been the top rusher for the Black Knights and if he can’t go that will be a big loss.
On the other side of this matchup is the Air Force Falcons who sit with a 6-2 record overall and even though they lost their last game against San Diego State, they were competitive. Air Force held San Diego State to only 20 points, but the offense could only manage 14 points. Air Force is averaging 29.3 points per game while the defense is giving up 16.8 points per game. They are also a run first team and they are currently averaging 318.4 yards per game on the ground which is first in college football. Brad Roberts has been the top rusher sitting with 845 yards and eight touchdowns.
The road team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings played between the two teams. The underdog is 5-0 in the last five meetings. The under is 7-0 in the last seven meetings. The under is 14-3 in Air Force’s last 17 games as a favorite.
These are two teams who like to both control the clock and this game will be spent on the ground. Look for plenty of clock being burned in this game, and both teams are going to struggle to score. Back the under.
