ArmySports.com Prediction

While TCU is not as strong as they were a couple years ago, they are still a good football team that should be able to beat Army. TCU beat a good Texas Tech team a few weeks ago. However, TCU does have a weak offense but they make up for it with a tough defense. Army's defense isn't too shabby either so it's possible the Cadets could pull it off.
