Houston Cougars vs. Army Black Knights, Armed Forces Bowl. The Black Knights have an incredible record in the regular season, just two defeats. The army team has been one of the best throughout the regular season at the national level. The Cougars do not have the best record, but the offense is one of the most deadly so far, almost 50 points per game. This game will have a lot to offer, but the Black Knights favoritism is not the best option.
Houston Cougars: Our scoring record.
The Cougars closed the season with a positive record of eight victories and only four defeats. The team finished in the first place of the WEST Division in the American Conference with 5-3 in the record. The last four games for the Cougars were a disaster in the regular season, 3 losses and only one win against Tulane at home 48-17.
The Cougars are scoring up to 46.4 points per game, the offense is the best of the West Division in the American. Up to 10.75 points per quarter. The defense allows an average of 34.4 points per game.
Clayton Tune is the weak point of the Cougars tonight, he’s a rookie with little experience. The star, D’Eriq King will not be available until next year for an injury. Tune has only had action in four games in the regular season, 44.7% in completed passes, 565 yards, 7 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions.
Army Black Nights: Powerful.
The record of the Black Nights has been a surprise this season, ten victories and only two defeats. The best of the regular season was the winning streak of eight games. That streak included victories against Air Force 17-14 and against Navy 17-10 in the last game of the regular season. The Black Nights offense is scoring an average of 29.7 points per game, the defense allows only 18.1 per game.
Kelvin Hopkins Jr with 53.3% in completed passes, 956 yards, 6 touchdowns and only three interceptions. Hopkins has had a good year as starting QB, but this is the first time in the season he plays against a defense that has been effective at home and on the road.
The Black Knights know that with Clayton Tune the Cougars will be weak, but they still have to face the Houston defense that only allows 34.4 points per game.
