CHALLENGES

Army has lost two straight to Duke. In 2016 the Black Knights fell 44-3 at Michie Stadium. Last season the score narrowed to 13-6 but still a loss for Army. The Cadets are hoping to play a complete game on Saturday and in doing so win their eighth game and complete an undefeated home slate, something only six Army teams have done since 1960. Duke has David Cutcliffe as head coach so you know they are going to throw the long ball. Army’s defensive secondary has to be ready while the D-line must get pressure on the Blue Devil quarterback.

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