CHALLENGES

Rice looks pretty bleak but looking at their schedule you’ll see they’ve lost to some solid competition. This is a game Army should win but they could also lose as well have multiple turnovers or just don’t execute. The Owls have had a big issue stopping the pass so far this season allowing just over 300 yards per game. That Rice stat should improve immensely against Army but hopefully, the Black Knights will be able to get enough production through the air and on the ground to win the game.

Saturday’s game starts at 6:30 pm ET and can be seen on BeIN Sports.
