ArmySports.com Prediction

The Army defense needs to return from its long vacation. The Cadets have given up 76 points over the last two weeks. The Black Knights will need a full showing by their defense in order to have a chance to do something that has only been done twice, beat Air Force in consecutive years. Can Army beat Air Force again? We think they can.
