 Non-conference college football in week nine pits the Army Black Knights at the Eastern Michigan Eagles.

The Army Black Knights outlasted visiting Miami (OH) 31-30 in double OT as a touchdown favorite despite losing quarterback Kelvin Hopkins to a hip  injury before the game. Army was outgained 406-347 and lost a 21-7 lead in the 4th quarter but stopped a two point conversion in OT to secure the win.

Cam Thomas filled in at quarterback for the Black Knights and went 0-2 throwing the ball but came up big on the ground with 137 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries. Darnell  Woolfolk added 96 yards and a pair of TD’s on 22 touches while the duo of Kell Walker and Andy Davidson combined to give Army another 90 yards on 18 attempts.

The Eastern Michigan Eagles avoided a nail biting finish in a 42-20 rout of the Ball State Cardinals as a three point favorite. Eastern won the yardage battle 420-384 and held a 2-1 turnover edge along with 37+ minutes of possession.

Eagles quarterback Tyler Wiegers connected on 22-28 for 257 yards and three touchdowns while running six times for six yards and another touchdown.

Shaq Vann led the EMU rushing attack with 63 yards on 20 touches with a trip to the end zone while Brock Turner totaled 59 yards on nine attempts. Eastern Michigan saw Line Latu catch three passes for 86 yards and a score with Arthur Jackson III making six receptions for 59 yards and a TD followed by Isaac Holder with three catches for 51 yards and another TD.

Over is 5-0 in Army Black Knights last 5 games in October and Army Black Knights are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game and Army Black Knights are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. Eastern Michigan Eagles are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in October and over is 5-0 in Eagles last 5 vs. INDEP and Eastern Michigan Eagles are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points. Over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. 

Army quarterback Kelvin Hopkins Jr. is listed as questionable with a hip injury so it's hard to cap a game when the best[ player on on side is an unknown. I'll throw this out there...

Pick:

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
