What a difference a year makes in Army’s football series with UMass.
The Black Knights were a 20-point road favorite against the Minuteman last November.
Today, at Michie Stadium, Army takes the field as a 9.5-point favorite (opened at 7.5) desperate to end a four-game losing streak.
UMass (1-7) enters the game winless in its last seven games.
Army (2-5) hasn’t scored in two straight games for the first time in 20 years.
Sal Interdonato (Black Knight Nation): Army 28, UMass 17. Looking for Army to “open” up offense a bit no matter who is playing quarterback. The offense has scored one first-half touchdown in their five losses this season. I’d take the ball if Army wins coin toss and make a statement.
Seth Mendelson (Black Knight Nation): Army 24, UMass 17. In August, no one thought the UMass game would be that important to the Army football season. How wrong we all were. This is a must-win for Army and the Black Knights know it. They respond to the pressure.
