The Army Black Knights are riding a four-game winning streak with one of the best defenses in college football, a top-five rushing attack and they're 5-2 against the spread. Tulane is coming off its best two performances of the season, but I do question if the Green Wave are solid enough defensively to slow down this Army offense. Tulane has had issues with Navy's rushing attack over the years and did allow 363 total yards against Army last year. The Army Black Knights have also had an extra week to prepare for this contest after its meeting with Air Force was postponed. It feels like we're getting free points with the better team.
I'll take Army and the points.
