2015 Army Season Preview
The 2013 season for Army ended with 5 straight defeats, including a 12th straight loss in the Army-Navy game. Rich Ellerson looks to turn this around in 2014, with what should be one of the best backfields in his tenure at West Point. Senior running back Terry Baggett returns after a 2013 season that saw him rush for over 1,100 yards and 8 touchdowns. He will be joined in the backfield by fellow seniors Angel Santiago, and Larry Dixon. The Black Knights biggest shortcoming in recent years have been on the defensive side of the ball. Army looks to put those woes behind them in 2014, with an experienced secondary headlined by senior free safety Geoffery Bacon. The biggest game for the Black Knights as always is the season finale against Navy. But if the Black Knights are to be bowl eligible for the first time since 2010, they will also need to find success against Buffalo, Yale, Kent State, and Fordham.
