Still, he hasn't thrown a touchdown this season to go along with seven interceptions, including three last week against Texas A&M. Army coach Bobby Ross seems to be patient with Pevoto. So Baylor is a big test.
2. Speaking of progression, how about Barry Sanders: Barry Sanders? Well, Army running back Wesley McMahand looked like Sanders the way he was cutting against Texas A&M.
He scored two touchdowns, including a 6-yard jaunt, which he seemed to channel Sanders when he cut left to the end zone. McMahand finished with 68 yards on 14 carries.
3. Roll out 'Iron Mike': Viti electrified fans with his 25-yard run early in the first quarter against Texas A&M.
He set career highs in rushed (six) and yards (46). And, of course, he laid out a bunch of hard blocks. Let's hope Viti is a part of the offense again this week.
4. Big leg: Army has a great punter in Owen Tolson, but Baylor's Daniel Sepulveda is the man. He won the Ray Guy Award - given to the best college punter in the nation each year -in 2004. Sepulveda is averaging 43.4 yards per punt this year.
5. Money man: If Army needs a field goal to win, fans have to feel good sending Austin Miller out to nail it.
He's 4-for-5 this season and has hit two big field goals in tight spots. His 36-yarder in overtime beat Kent State two weeks ago. Miller, a senior, hit a 41-yarder late in the fourth quarter to pull Army to within 28-24 of Texas A&M last week.
6. The pick man: If Pevoto isn't careful, he could end up with a few more interceptions against Baylor.
Senior C.J. Wilson, an All-America candidate, leads the nation with four interceptions this season. If Pevoto makes a mistake his way, it could get ugly.
7. Ringing the bell: Baylor quarterback Shawn Bell is a threat to pass and run. He enters Saturday with 3,914 career passing yards. He completed 20-of-30 passes for 205 yards and a touchdown in a 20-10 win over Army last season at Michie Stadium.
8. Cameron's coming: Army defensive end Cameron Craig did it again last week when he stacked Texas A&M tailback Jorvorskie Lane - all 6-foot, 272-pounds of him, dead in his tracks on a key fourth down play late in the fourth quarter. Craig, a senior, is having the best year of his career. He has three sacks and averages three tackles for a loss per game.
But he didn't have Caleb Campbell games, either. He did against Texas A&M, notching 13 tackles. Campbell was one of few Army defenders that pulled Lane down.
10. The play of Sean Grevious and Kevin Opoku: Kudos to the inexperienced cornerbacks. Both have been solid three games into the season. Most fans would have to say they are surprised by their consistency. Grevious, a senior, had six tackles and forced a fumble against Texas A&M. Opoku made four tackles.
