Challenges for Army

Army’s challenge is to take care of business of come out with a win on Saturday. Don’t show up sleep walking. While we worry about sleep walking, the Leopards will be bouncing off the walls for Army. A dangerous combination. This the first of two FCS opponents Army will face this season. The Black Knights need to do two other things in addition to winning, avoid injuries and develop young players for the future.

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