Looking Forward to the Deacons

Thursday, September 18, 2014

A lot to look forward to this weekend. The team has moved on but, as a fan, I'd like another level of distance from that Stanford loss.

WPTZ posted a decent game preview.

The Sacramento Bee posted another preview that, to the Army football fan, makes this game look as appetizing as any other on this year's schedule. Check the prediction on that one.

Wake blog Blogger so Dear has Wake Forest's 3 keys  to the game.

The Cadets will take the field in all white - a completely new look considering the new uniform style.

ESPN has Army (-2.5) on Upset Watch

"If Wake Forest can limit such damaging mistakes, then they will be in some games down the road. Because the defense is respectable. Better than respectable, actually, ranking in the top half of the ACC in total defense, scoring defense and rushing defense. Wake Forest beat Army last season and has won seven straight in the series. The Demon Deacons are 6-0 vs. Army at BB&T Field and have not lost to the Black Knights since 1989."

The statistics are respectable, I'll reserve comments on the respectability of the Deacons opponents.

Also there's a little game preview up on GoArmySports.

Army Athletics' Youtube channel has been running a Throwback Thursday item for a year now. In this installment they throw back to the 1963 season (47-0 Army!)

This is the middle game in a 3 game road swing for Army. There is zero chance of looking ahead to Yale as they play their first game of 2014 this weekend In New Haven against Lehigh.
