Your Army Black Knights take on the Houston Cougars this Saturday in the Armed Forces Bowl. But you already knew that. What else are you watching? Here are my Top 5. 5. Independence Bowl: Temple vs Duke Two perennial Army opponents go at it in an intriguing match-up that I’m certain to miss for the slopes […]
Alas, the college football season is almost over. In many ways, it feels like I was hosting Sports Bar on the Back Deck just a few weeks ago to celebrate the season’s start. But that’s emotion talking. In fact, your Army Black Knights have kicked ass in 2018. They currently hold a 10-2 record, are […]
The As For Football crew has you covered this year with picks for every bowl game! Rob, John, and Dan reveal their projections for each game using ESPN Confidence Scoring. This means that in addition to picking the winner of each game, they will assign a confidence point value 1 through 41. In Confidence Scoring […]
My favorite thing about Bowl Season is seeing all the crazy match-ups. We’ve had to listen to Navy fans chirp all season about how hard their schedule has been and about how the American ought to be a “Power 6” conference. Now, at last, we can see how true that is. I love the SEC, […]
If you’ve read this column the past few weeks, you may already have guessed this week’s Triple-Option Offense Play of the Week. Yes, that’s right. It’s SB John Trainor’s 8-yard run off a left-handed pitch late in the 4th quarter last year, setting up the go-ahead score. Recall the situation. Army scored on the opening […]
It’s Championship Weekend! That means there aren’t nearly as many games as we’re used to seeing, but most ought to be legit barn-burners. At least three contests could impact the Black Knights’ bowl prospects as well. Let’s take a look… 6. Big 10 Championship: #21 Northwestern (8-4) at #6 Ohio State (11-1) Can the […]
Since Army’s on a bye again this week, let’s talk a little about potential bowl match-ups. We all were (especially Rob) dreaming of a New Year’s Six Bowl. That would have been awesome, of course, but for the moment, it’s super unlikely. If UCF doesn’t make it in, the committee will take the Mountain West Champion, […]
Our triple-option play of the week this week comes from Navy at Tulane. If you missed it, that turned out to be one of the most exciting games of the weekend. Navy struggled to run the ball all game. They did okay with the Fullback Dive, but the Mids never stick with that for more […]
Good afternoon and happy Black Friday! This is a special post-Thanksgiving edition of the College Football Roundtable. We’ll be previewing our top five games this week plus adding a special bonus game by request. How did we choose our Top 5? I’m glad you asked. Since As For Football is about Army Football first and […]
The Big XII doesn’t have divisions, so figuring out who’s gonna play in the conference championship game occasionally requires a degree in Rocket Science or an affinity for reading tarot cards. I, of course, understand both. But even if I didn’t, I could tell you that there are now just three teams with a legitimate […]
