Army Black Knights

The Army Black Knights will go all out as they firm up their bid for bowl eligibility. The Black Knights will rely on their patented rush offense, currently ranked 5th in the FBS leaderboard with 263.5 rushing yards per game. Compared to previous years, the Army is doing worse. Since 2015, they have not finished below second. In focus will be QB Kelvin Hopkins Jr. who is leading the team with five rushing touchdowns. He is tied with running back Sandon McCoy. On defense, Army has allowed opponents 5.6 yards per play and an average of 150.3 rushing yards per game. To overcome the Falcons, they need to do better defensively.

Players to watch K. Hopkins Jr. QB  27 CMP 61 ATT 452 YDS 44 CMP% 7.4 AVG 37 LNG 4  TD 3 INT; C. Slomka RB 105 ATT 452 YDS 4.3 AVG 38 LNG; S. McCoy RB  81 ATT 324 YDS 4 AVG 15 LNG; C. Harrison WR 16 REC 249 YDS 15.6 AVG 36 LNG; A. Hobbs IV WR 8 REC 199 YDS 24.9 AVG 80 LNG

Air Force Falcons

Like Army, the Air Force Falcons‘ offensive is something to watch out for. However, they have been more consistent, a reason why they rank second in rushing offense with 322.5 in the nation. Part of their success is Donald Hammond III. Hammond leads the team with eight scores on the ground. Also, the quarterback is getting ample support from the Falcons running backs with 500 rushing yards or more. Kadin Remsberg, Taven Bidow and Timothy Jackson are functioning well with Hammond, posing more worries for Army. Defensively, they have limited opponents to 92.8 rushing yards per game which are ranked 11th in the country. Aside from that, another plus for the Falcons is their home-field advantage. This showdown is seen by many as a low-scoring affair.

Players to watch: D. Hammond III QB  32 CMP 66 ATT 693 YDS 48.5 CMP% 10.5 AVG 81 LNG 5 TD 3 INT;  K. Remsberg RB 105 ATT 623 YDS 5.9 AVG 25 LNG; T. Birdow RB 121 ATT 550 YDS 4.5  AVG 41 LNG; G. Sanders FB 20 REC 479 YDS 24 AVG 75 LNG; B. Waters WR 11 REC 316 YDS 28.7 AVG 81 LNG
