Army have a good record, and are currently third in the nation when it comes to rushing yards. They have a talented quarterback in Ahmad Bradshaw. He is somebody who knows how to set up running plays, but is not a huge thrower of the ball. Army have developed a strong running game on this basis, and will be looking to open up Rice’s defence in this way. If Rice have sussed this out, Army may need to come up with an alternative game plan and come at Rice in a way that wasn’t expected.
Rice have had it rough. Really rough. They have lost three in a row recently. Their main issue seems to be scoring, and there seems to be a lack of firepower in the attack. When it comes to running and passing, the team are lacking talent in both departments. If they are to get a good result from this game, they will have to perform in at least one of those departments. They are coming up against a good defence, so they will not be able to making any offensive mistakes. Rice rank 121st in the FBS, which says a lot about how they have done this season. However, this is another game, and they have a chance if they improve their throwing and/or running. They need to have self belief.
