CHALLENGES

Army-Navy is the biggest game on both team’s schedule, every season. A lose make the offseason really hard. Army won last year’s matchup for the first time in well over a decade. While this is the biggest game on the ledger, the Black Knights need to approach Navy just like they would any other game. West Point should have the edge in this game defensively. Furthermore, Army has done pretty well at stopping Navy’s option over the past few years. Saturday’s game looks to be pretty evenly matched. It’ll be a game worth watching, no matter what kind of football you prefer.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 3 pm ET and can be seen on CBS.
