Army-Navy Game 2018: Preview

After losing to Navy 14 consecutive times from 2002 through 2015, the Black Knights go for their third win in a row in the series on Saturday.

Army will be favored to get there, too. The Black Knights are one win away from a second consecutive 10-win season. This year, Army averages 30.8 points per game, with QB Kelvin Hopkins Jr. leading the offense. 

Navy is 3-9 this season. Malcolm Perry leads the Midshipmen with 1,035 rushing yards.

In last year's game, Army won after Navy missed a field goal on the final play in snowy conditions. Expect Army to win by a more comfortable margin this year, but Navy could still keep it close despite the discrepancies statistically and with the records.
