2014 Army Black Knights Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
by Robert Ferringo - 7/25/2014
2013 Record: 3-9
2014 Las Vegas Season Win Total: 4.5*
2014 Season Win Total Prediction: 'Over'
Army has been to just one bowl game in the past 15 years, a 2010 upset of SMU in the Armed Forces Bowl. But with one of the most experienced teams in the nation the Black Knights could break through for another appearance this fall.
The Black Knights have 16 returning starters from last year's three-win campaign. They are one of the Top 10 most experienced teams in the nation - rare for a service academy - and the schedule lines up well for this option team.
Army has home games against Buffalo, Ball State, Rice, Air Force and Fordham. They also have winnable road games against Yale, Kent State and Western Kentucky. Even if Army wasn't able to upset a team like Wake Forest, Connecticut or Navy, they could still find more wins on this schedule than the Black Knights have mustered the last two years combined (five).
I would bet on Army getting the job done this year. Half of the starters are seniors and this team welcomes back all its key skill people. They won't wow anyone. But I do see Army winning at least five games this year. Play 'over'.
