ArmySports.com Prediction

The big question for this game is Army's quarterback situation. Who will start, Pevoto or the freshman Carson Williams? Big decision for Bobby Ross and his staff. Good luck to whoever gets the starting job. Tulane is beatable but they can certainly defeat Army. Expect a close, high scoring game with the Cadets coming out on top.
