Army Air Force Preview

Friday, November 6, 2009

GoArmySports has Army's capsule previews of the Air Force game.

ESPN has their stat previews up.

USA Today has a very good preview of the game... I won't excerpt because it's worth going there to read the whole thing.

Another good preview over at CFN:

Why to watch: There’s always a lot of outside factors brought into any football game between service academies, but after the tragedy at Fort Hood, it brings the reality of the players’ world front and center. These are football players on the field, but soon they’ll go off and serve their country; a fact that tends to get lost in the heat of the season. On the field, each team needs to come up with a win to keep bowl hopes alive. Army is on a two-game losing streak and has lost four of its last five games, with a stunning overtime win over Vanderbilt in the mix. With winnable games against VMI and North Texas coming up next, the Knights will likely get to six wins before dealing with Navy if they can beat the Falcons. For Air Force, coming up with a win is a must to get bowl eligible, and then it’s going to take a win over either UNLV or BYU in the final two weeks to be assured of a spot.

On the message board: Army @ Air Force provides a nice break from the usual vile poison that is espoused on that site... I'm still not going to advocate involvement in that forum, but this is about as pleasant as it gets.

Alejandro Villanueva is ESPN's focus his week, as Ali has an interview up on and will be featured as the big man on campus when ESPN broadcasts College Gameday from Colorado Springs.
