The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks will face off against the Army West Point Black Knights at 1:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Blaik Field at Michie Stadium. Last year was nothing to brag about for the Warhawks (5-7), so the team is looking forward to a new start. Army West Point was 5-8 last season and is coming off of a 42 to nothing victory against the Middle Tenn. Blue Raiders this past Saturday.
Two last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Louisiana-Monroe was third worst when it came to rushing yards allowed per game last year, with the squad giving up 252.7 on average. To make matters even worse for Louisiana-Monroe, Army West Point was third best in the nation in rushing yards per game, finishing the 2019 season with 297.2 on average. So the Louisiana-Monroe squad has its work cut out for it.
Since the experts predict a loss, Louisiana-Monroe will need to dig deep. Perhaps they’ll be able to flip the script and come out with a big win.
