Weekend Picks: Army Navy Game

The annual Army Navy Game is today and you should be watching.  This match-up will feature two of the best squads for either team in at least a decade.  The Midshipmen were actually three baffling losses away from an undefeated season!  Both teams are bowl bound this year which along with Air Force marks one of the few times ever that all three Military Academies are going to a bowl.  

Army features an option attack that has been surprisingly successful this year.  In fact their running game ranked 9th in nation behind QB Trent Steelman and RB Patrick Mealy.  The Black Knights will have a tough test today facing a very experience Naval Squad.  

Navy is led by Senior QB Ricky Dobbs.  Ricky is somewhat of an unknown in terms of running backs when you consider the hype that others such as Cam Newton, Denard Robinson, and Colin Kaepernick have gotten.  However he led the nation's 5th ranked running team in yards this year after coming back from an injury last year.  

The Midshipmen have won 8 straight against Army but that might not be the most impressive stat that this year's Seniors have against their military opponents.  The have held Army without a TD in their last three games and I'm sure they'd love to go their entire college career keeping the Knights out of the end zone.  

Go watch the only College Football game on today at 2:30 PM on CBS and make sure to cheer for a great game!
