Army 3-2

Friday, October 14, 2016

Army/Duke ended up being a pretty disappointing game considering all Army needed to do for more than half the game was finish ONE drive.

To be that close and lose on account of a few mistakes is just maddening.

Here are the Army/Duke storystats and highlights.

Army is second in NCAA team rushing

No time to panic

The bright side is that the defense has put on a show in every game this year. The obvious caveat is that they have been playing behind an efficient offensive machine in their wins, but in their losses the same NCAA #1 rushing offense has experienced lapses enough to in Any remaining game can be won if the offense can extend drives and maximize the time of possession. Army will presumably win against Lafayette tomorrow and will sit at 4-2 at the mid point of the season.

After playing Lafayette on Saturday Army's remaining schedule is

North Texas
Wake Forest
Air Force
Notre Dame
Morgan State

Three wins will get Army to a bowl. It doesn't matter who Army plays Saturday, this game is a big one in terms of bowl hopes.
