The Army Black Knights shoot for their first win at the Eastern Michigan Eagles in week four action.
The Army Black Knights have been highly competitive in the early stages of the season but they have nothing to show for their efforts. The Black Knights have dropped to 0-3 following a 17-14 loss to visiting Wake Forest with all of the defeats coming by a combined ten points. Losing to the Demon Deacons was especially painful with a 47 yard field goal as time expired providing the margin. Defense ruled the day with Wake Forest holding a 346-240 edge in yards that was negated by three interceptions. Quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw was never able to get the Army offense going with a team high 61 yards on 22 carries and a touchdown while hitting 2-3 for 54 passing yards. De Andre Bell and John Trainor caught 31 and 23 yard passes respectively while Christian Drake ran for 37 yards on two totes and a score to give the Army attack some explosiveness.

The Eastern Michigan Eagles haven’t enjoyed success in decades and 2015 hasn’t gone as planned with a 1-2 record after opening the conference schedule with a 28-17 loss to visiting Ball State. The Eagle led 17-14 before the Cardinals found the end zone twice in the 4th quarter. The Cardinals had 472 yards and had the ball for over 37 minutes while the Eagles mustered just 319 yards and 12 first downs. Brogan Roback struggled in the air going 19-39 for 196 yards and a pair of interceptions that really hurt the Eagles. Dustiin Creel and Kris Strange paced the Eastern Michigan receiving corps with nine catches for 94 yards while Darius Jackson ran for 97 yards and two touchdowns while adding 39 yards on two receptions.
The over is 4-0 in Black Knights last 4 vs. a team with a losing record while the Black Knights are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game. The over is 4-0 in Eagles last 4 games following a S.U. loss and is 6-1 in Eagles last 7 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game while the over is 6-1 in Eagles last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. I don’t see enough of an edge to consider a bet here but I’ll keep looking…
