Challenges for Army

Army barely escaped its most recent game against a MAC team. Eastern Michigan is one of the better teams in the MAc. Consider that just days ago Purdue dominated Ohio State. Eastern Michigan defeated Purdue earlier in the season. The Eagles might be the best remaining opponent of Army’s 2018 slate. Army can’t afford to overlook them.

Saturday’s game kicks off at Noon ET and can be seen on the CBS Sports Network.
