Army Black Knights vs. Air Force Falcons College Football Latest News

Army Black Knights vs. Air Force Falcons Sports NewsThe Army Black Knights and the Air Force Falcons will fight today at Falcon Stadium, in a college football game televised on CBS.

With the nation’s No. 1 and No. 3 rushing attacks on display here, we’d love to pick a side and watch these two try to run the ball down each other’s throats.

However, the injury bug prevents us from giving this one more than a passing glance.

Both starting QB’s could be out for today’s game: Army’s Trent Steelman missed the last sports news game versus Fordham with an ankle injury while Air Force’s Tim Jefferson left the New Mexico game with a hamstring pull (their respective backups, the Cadets’ Max Jenkins and the Falcons’ Connor Dietz, combined to go just 2-for-3 for 39 yards in their absences).

Army has been strafed repeatedly in this series recently, going just 1-8 SUATS in the last nine skirmishes. They’ve also lost the game and the money five straight times.

Making matters worse for the Cadets? They’re on the road for the season’s final four games – and with neutral site affairs with Rutgers and Navy sandwiched around a trip to Philly to take on Temple, Army is in a must-win situation today if they expect to duplicate last season’s feat of reaching a bowl game.

The visitors actually own the better defense here in points and total yards allowed but that edge is negated by the Flyboys’ slightly superior offense.

All things considered, we think the linemaker has done his job. Pass.

A few trends to consider:

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Army's last 10 games on the road
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Army's last 5 games
Army is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games on the road
Army is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games on the road
Air Force is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games when playing Army
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Air Force's last 8 games
Air Force is 7-1 SU in its last 8 games when playing at home against Army
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Air Force's last 6 games at home
