Challenges for Army
The loss to Duke was a tough pill to swallow. The Black Knights need to put that rough game behind them and focus on what appears to be a solid Liberty squad. In 2017 Liberty pulled off a stunner win at Baylor. The recent lopsided win over ODU indicates the Flames are not going to go down easily, if at all. Head coach Turner Gill is a former quarterback at Nebraska who ran a mostly running offense that included some option plays. That means he should have the knowledge needed to slow down Army option attack.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 12:00 pm ET and can be seen on the CBS Sports Network.
