The annual Army-Navy game is #Merica’s game and everyone will be watching the 117th meeting between these two teams. Even the president-elect will be in Baltimore to watch the game of all games:
As a show of support for our Armed Forces, I will be going to The Army-Navy Game today. Looking forward to it, should be fun!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 10, 2016
ESPN’s College Gameday is there and as usual Lee Corso made his final pick of the season, choosing the Midshipmen as he donned the Bill the Goat mascot head.
Everyone is confident Navy will beat the Black Knights, what is uncertain at this point is if they will cover the spread. Initially Navy was a 6-point favorite over Army even with quarterback Will Worth out on injury. Worth has taken this No. 25 Navy team to a new level, ranked as the top player in his position in running touchdowns. He’s led this offense driven team to some pretty spectacular wins this season including Houston and Notre Dame. Navy’s offense might not be as smooth without Worth in the driver’s seat, but the Midshipmen also have four rushers with 400 yards this season.
The last two meetings between this team have been decided by a touchdown or less and I expect the same outcome today, especially with Navy missing two key players. Army is ranked second in the FBS for rushing yards per a game and we all know where the Navy defense lacks.
This will make for some interesting football folks, but don’t doubt the Midshipmen they love winning almost as much as they love America.
