Army was able to break a long losing streak with Navy last year by posting the 21-17 victory as a 5 ½ point underdog. Black Knights had a good defensive game in the victory by limiting the Midshipmen to just 201 yards for the game.

Both teams are headed to bowl games. Army has a record of 8-3. Their six game losing streak was snapped in a 52-49 road defeat to North Texas. So, Army hits the field after a three week rest. In that wild game with the Mean Green it was the Black Knights losing in the closing seconds by a field goal. Army ran wild and lost despite rushing for 561 yards and averaging 8 yards per carry. What was ironic by this defeat is despite scoring 49 points the Army Black Knights threw only one pass. Starting quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw has thrown only 39 passes all season in his 11 starts. On the season the Black Knights rush for 368 yards per game averaging 6.2 yards per run attempt. They scored 31.2 points per game.

Navy is 6-5 on the year and appears to not be one of the strong teams we have seen in recent years. They enter play losers of two straight and five of their past six games. Navy competes in the AAC conference and has played a much more difficult schedule. The Midshipmen last completed back on November 23th where they dropped a 24-14 decision to the Houston Cougars. Navy struggled with their run game with the team rushing for only 3.6 yards per rush attempt. On defense Navy on the season allowed 400 yards with 29 points per game.
