The Black Knights now face their last, best chance to get back to Army Football. A win this week and their bowl hopes, however tenuous, remain at least theoretically alive. Lose, and we’re looking at a one-game season against Navy, for better or worse.
Here’s a look at some of the other games we’re watching this weekend.
"Ours chose West Point, and they do that knowing that they're going to leave soldiers, and some of them are going to leave soldiers in the most difficult of circumstances. And they still come." @ArmyWP_Football @CoachJeffMonken @ChildersRadio @CoachNeuheisel #VeteransDay2022 pic.twitter.com/AyDJkkVn9y— College Sports on SiriusXM (@SXMCollege) November 11, 2022
#9 Alabama at #11 Ole Miss
Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban has two regular season losses for the first time since 2010. Now he faces arguably his greatest discipline in Ole Miss’s Head Coach Lane Kiffin. Oh by the way, this game featured the best ranked-on-ranked match-up of the week.
‘Bama is favored by 11.5. CBS has coverage, starting at 3:30 pm.

#22 UCF at #17 Tulane
Central Florida is getting a point and a half on the road at undefeated Tulane. If they win, it sets up a rematch for the American Conference Championship. A loss, however, might put Cincinnati back into the mix depending on how the season finishes out.
The Green Wave often start hot but then swoon down the stretch. Is this the year they finally put it all together, or will we see another late-season collapse?
For sheer entertainment value, this is liable to be the game of the day. It kicks at 3:30 on ESPN2.

#4 TCU at #18 Texas
Undefeated TCU is getting a touchdown on the road at Texas, a team that is perennially “back” but which never seems to live up to expectations. The Horned Frogs don’t play defense, but who cares when you can average 43+ points/game?
Can TCU actually make the Playoff? We might find out on Saturday, starting at 7:30 pm on ABC.

#15 North Carolina at Wake Forest
Wake Forest is arguably the most disappointing team in the ACC. They looked awesome until Louisville showed the world how to get to QB Sam Hartman. Now they just look average. Meanwhile, UNC can clinch a bid to the ACC Championship with a win this weekend.
The Tar Heels are 3.5-point favorite. Kickoff goes at 7:30 on ESPN2.

San Jose State at San Diego State
A match-up between two of the better teams in the Mountain-West with rumors swirling that SDSU might soon be headed for the Pac-12. Fresno State has probably got a trip to the Mountain West Championship locked up from the West Division, but SDSU can get bowl eligible with a win while SJSU will look like a legit perennial contender after years in the Mountain West basement if they get the victory.
Unfortunately, this game kicks at 10:30 pm. Fox Sports 1 has coverage. The Aztecs are favored by a field goal.

East Carolina at Cincinnati
A Cincy win and a UCF loss puts the Bearcats back in the American Conference Championship. Kickoff goes tonight at 8:00 pm on ESPN2. Bearcats are favored by 5.
#20 Notre Dame vs. Navy
Hey kids. Wanna see a dead body?
Check ABC tomorrow at noon.
Liberty at UConn
UConn can get bowl eligible if they can win just one more game. But they face a very good squad from Liberty that’s favored by 2+ touchdowns.
CBS Sports has this one starting at noon.
Virginia Tech at Duke
When was the last time Duke was favored to beat Virginia Tech by almost 10 points? Crazy. This one’s on ESPN3, starting at noon.
UL Monroe at Georgia State
State’s gonna win this one in a walk. After that, they’ll need to beat either JMU or Marshall to get to a bowl game. Personally, I think they’ll win both those games.
This one’s on ESPN+ starting at noon. You don’t need to watch it. I just think it’s interesting that Georgia State always starts 1-4 and finishes, like, 6-2.
Here's a rundown of who and when we're playing in 2023‼️— Army Football (@ArmyWP_Football) November 11, 2022
