ArmySports.com Prediction

Army will try to beat Navy for the first time since 2001 on Saturday. Most are predicting a lopsided Navy win but it won't turn out that way. Look for Army to win this game. Navy will show up overconfident and not ready to play. Army, which played Texas A&M to the wire earlier in the season, will be healthier with the week off. Despite the ugly loss to Air Force a few weeks ago, Army coach Bobby Ross will have the team ready for this game.
