Army vs Troy Game Preview
Why the army will win
The racing game still works.
The Knights may have struggled against the Air Force, but that always happens when the service academies meet. Prior to that, the O was going for well over 400 yards in the previous few games, that’s amazing on third downs, averaging over 300 yards per game and that’s going to run the clock.
Troy’s offense sputters to get things done, struggles in the red zone, and the line can’t generate thrust. It’s awful in pass protection and it doesn’t run, but…

Why Troy will win
The defense is a rock, especially against the run.
It’s kind of a plus against Army.
The team makes up for a host of issues by keeping just about everyone within 100 yards on the ground – Ole Miss and Appalachia State, Louisiana and Appalachia State were the only ones to overcome this.
The defensive front is excellent for getting into the backfield and should be able to stop the army offensive before it begins.

what’s going to happen
It’s all fun and games until you see the army offensive up close.
But Troy will be able to handle it.
The defense mostly has problems against teams that can shoot well, and that’s not the army. The Trojans will be able to sell themselves and prevent the O army from leaving.
Army is 4-0 when generating over 410 yards and 0-4 when not. Troy is 6-0 when allowing less than 400 yards.
