Key Matchups: Army versus Air Force

The eighth game of the year matches the Army Black Knights (Sagarin 158, 2-5) and the rival Mountain West Conference Air Force Falcons (Sagarin 116, 5-2.) Air Force has dominated this series the past two decades, winning 22 of the past 25 meetings. Last year Air Force dominated the second half to beat the Black Knights, 42-28 in Colorado Springs.

Three Keys: Air Force

The Army football team has to deal with the challenges that are particular to the Air Force Falcons on Saturday in West Point. However, the Black Knights also need to account for the circumstances surrounding Air Force as it comes to Michie Stadium. Third, the Black Knights have to be able to solve their own internal problems, using a bye week as well as humanly possible.

Air Force: Lessons From Another Academy

The Army football team will be cheered on by the United States Naval Academy this Saturday, but the Black Knights couldn't care less about that reality. Coach Jeff Monken's team, after a bye week, needs to admire Air Force and learn from the Falcons before it can then beat the other FBS service academy, the one from Colorado Springs. Army wants to make a little history of its own.
