Army Home Football Kickoff Times Set

It is time to get that calendar off the wall, or more likely pull up a calendar app on your smart phone, because Army West Point has announced the kickoff times for their home football games this fall.

Thankfully the athletic department has done all forgetful fans something of a favor this year as the kick off times for the Black Knights games are ludicrously straight forward. Army will play five Saturday home games in 2015 and all five of them will kick off at noon at Michie Stadium. Those noon kick off games will see Army West Point take on Wake Forest (Sept. 19), Duke (Oct. 10), Bucknell (Oct. 17), Tulane (Nov. 14) and Rutgers (Nov.21). The only difference with any of these games will be that the final home game against Rutgers will be senior day.

But wait, there is one game which will be hosted at Michie Stadium this fall which will not be in the safe and predictable Saturday at noon start time. Army West Point will open its season against Fordham on Friday September 4 under the lights with a 7 p.m. start time. There is something special about a showcase event to start the season and regardless of the caliber of the opposition this game time will give the Black Knights players something to very much look forward to over the long days of fall camp.

One of the benefits of starting games as the same time every week, and in a time slot which is often before the powerhouses come out to play, is that Army has been able to pick up a solid TV deal. All of the Black Knights home games this fall will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network, so whenever you are in the country it should be easy to pick up the feed in any sports bar.

While the start times of the Army West Point road games this fall have yet to be announced there is one more date for your diary (do people even still have them?). The Army-Navy game is scheduled for 3 p.m. on December 12 and will be carried nationwide by CBS. This start time would look to be set in stone despite the ongoing debate about how this showcase game being so late in the season could theoretically cause problems with the college football playoff.
