Not many players have to wake up before dawn, fulfill military obligations, attend classes and then grind through football practice. For the athletes at Army and Navy, it’s all in a day’s work.
UConn is in an unusual position this week, coming off a victory and favored to win again.
Rutgers will have seven home games at High Point Solutions Stadium in 2015.
The Navy Midshipmen and Army Black Knights meet for the 112th time this Saturday. Navy has enjoyed recent success but Army is determined to earn the victory.
Army (6-5) is headed for the Armed Forces Bowl. The Black Knights played in the Independence Bowl in 1996, their last winning season.
Trent Steelman and Brian Cobbs each scored two of Army’s six rushing touchdowns and the Black Knights became bowl eligible with a 45-28 win over Kent State on Saturday.
