Army vs Troy Game Preview
Why Army Will Win
The running game still works.
The Knights might have struggled against Air Force, but that always happens when the service academies meet up. Before that the O rolled for well over 400 yards in the previous few games, it’s amazing on third downs, averages over 300 yards per game and it’s going to control the clock.
Troy’s offense sputters to keep things moving, has a hard time in the red zone, and the line can’t generate a push. It’s awful in pass protection and doesn’t run, but …
Why Troy Will Win
The defense is a rock, especially against he run.
That’s sort of a plus against Army.
The team makes up for a slew of issues by keeping just about everyone to under 100 rushing yards – Ole Miss and Appalachian State, Louisiana, and Appalachian State were the only ones to get over that.
The defensive front is great at getting into the backfield and should be able to stop the Army offense before it gets started.
What’s Going To Happen
It’s all fun and games until you see the Army offense up close.
But Troy will be able to handle it.
The defense mostly has problems against teams that can throw well, and that’s not Army. The Trojans will be able to sell out and keep the Army O from going off.
Army is 4-0 when generating over 410 yards and 0-4 when it doesn’t. Troy is 6-0 when it allowed under 400 yards.
