2016 Army Season Preview
Army came agonizingly close to ending their 13 year drought against arch-rival Navy in 2014, and come into 2015 looking to finally get a win over Annapolis. To get them there, the Black Knights will turn to senior quarterback A.J. Schurr. Schurr averaged over 7 yards a carry last season and will help orchestrate the Black Knights deadly rushing attack. Army has struggled in recent years to score points against top tier competition. Look for the Black Knights to continue to run the ball well in 2015, and look to reduce turnovers to help keep drives going. Top games on the Army Black Knights 2015 schedule will be at Penn State, Air Force, and against Rutgers and Navy.
