Army Cadets 2016 Schedule Breakdown

We now head into Independents country, and take our schedule breakdown tour to the scenic campus at West Point, one of the most stunning college football environments in the nation:

9/2 at Temple
9/10 Rice
9/17 at UTEP
9/24 at Buffalo
10/8 at Duke
10/15 Lafayette
10/22 North Texas
10/29 at Wake Forest
11/5 Air Force
11/12 Notre Dame (at San Antonio)
11/19 Morgan State
12/10 Navy (at Philadelphia)

Notes: Army has a rough September slate that has losses to Temple, Rice, and UTEP marked, and the Buffalo game is a toss up. I will give the edge to Buffalo, making an 0-4 start probable.
Army loses to Duke to start October in their 3rd straight road game. They finally start getting some wins against teams like Lafayette and North Texas, but a loss to Wake Forest follows.
November/December is unkind to the Cadets, as they likely only project to beat Morgan State, with losses coming to Air Force, Notre Dame, and Navy.
Overall Projected Record: 3-9

  1. Not sure UTEP, Rice or Wake are obvious losses. Wake games have been 3-point games the past two seasons, Rice barely beat Army in Houston last season and UTEP is expected to be pretty poor by many experts, even worse than Army.

    Navy is another that will be close. They lose the whole offense that struggled against Army's defense last season. I expect the streak to end this season.
