Army (8-2) vs. Colgate (9-0) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
This isn’t just some regular game for Army against an FCS team.
Colgate is 9-0 and dominating the Patriot League with the FCS’s best defense in the midst of an epic season. It’s allowing just 192 yards per game, giving up a grand total of nine points in the last eight games after opening things up with a 24-17 win over Holy Cross.
Army is on a six-game winning streak, with bowl eligibility long established and with plenty of decent wins along the way, but to get by a run defense allowing just 57 yards per game will be its toughest test since the loss to Oklahoma.
Colgate hasn’t faced anything like what the Knights bring with the nation’s second-best rushing attack, but in linebackers TJ Holl and Dillon Deluliis, the Red Raiders have the speedy, savvy tacklers to handle whats coming with the option. Between the amazing run D, and the running of James Holland, the formulate is there to pull off the upset. But …
Army can play a little, too. It does almost everything Colgate does, only a wee bit faster.
The Knights will get stuffed just enough to keep this close, but they’ll control the clock, swarm around Holland, and generate enough defensive pressure to slip by the nation’s No. 6 team in a thriller that’ll come down to the final drive.
