Army is fresh off a win over Eastern Michigan that saw the Black Knights get to 6-2 and become bowl eligible for the third straight season for the first time in program history.
Things haven’t come quite as easy for Air Force. The Falcons played Boise State tough for four quarters but saw their record fall to 3-5. However, after a 35-7 win over Navy last month, the Falcons are halfway to their first Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy since 2016.
Air Force’s bowl chances likely depend on winning the CIC Trophy on the Banks of the Hudson. Against All Enemies has been all over the coverage this week, from an interview with Jay Feely to a preview from the Army perspective and, as always, our picks for the week.
