Predictions from around the college football universe
Pete Fiutak (College Football News): Army 27, UTSA 17
Jerry Palm (CBS Sports): Army -17. Palm writes, “Army is one of those teams that is very tough to prepare for and tends to bring out the worst in the defenses the Black Knights face. It takes a great deal of discipline to slow them down, a lesson Michigan learned last week. Army also tests the patience of its opponent’s offense because it is not on the field much. UTSA may not give up the 63 it did to Baylor last week, but it will still lose quite comfortably.”
The Power Rank: Army has 87 percent chance of winning and will defeat UTSA by 15.6 points.
