Two of the nation's top three rushing offenses will meet Saturday when Air Force hosts Army in a nationally-televised contest. Both schools average more than 55 carries and 300 rush yards per game.
Air Force has a chance to lock up the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy with a win over Army on Saturday. The trophy is awarded to the winner of the round-robin series between Air Force, Army and Navy each year, and Air Force has already beaten the Midshipmen this season. It would be Air Force's second consecutive and 18th CIC trophy overall.
The Falcons are heavy favorites in this one and they've dominated the recent series against the Black Knights. Army has not beaten Air Force, or even kept within one score, since a 27-24 win in 2005.
