ArmySports.com Prediction

Army's got a big task on its hands in UConn. The Huskies pounded Army last season at West Point. However, there is good news. This UConn team is not the same as the one that hammered the Cadets last season. They've struggled and will likely be over confident for Army after their win last season. I look for Army to shut down the UConn offense and pick up their fourth win.
