Why Army can cover

Army has one of the best running attacks in the country. Behind a triple-option offense, the Black Knights average 286.4 rushing yards per game, which ranks second in the FBS. They’ve also run for 44 touchdowns, which is the most of any team in the nation.

In addition, Army is one of the best teams in the country at protecting the football. The Black Knights have turned the ball over just eight teams this season. Just two teams, Colorado and Toledo (both with seven), have fewer turnovers.

Why Missouri can cover

Missouri is excellent at protecting the passer. The Tigers allow just 1.25 sacks per game, which ranks third in the SEC and 13th in the country. That bodes well for a team facing Army’s Andre Carter II, who leads the nation in sacks per game (1.21).

In addition, Missouri faces an Army offense that is not a threat in the passing game. The Black Knights average just 94.8 passing yards per game. Just Air Force and Navy average fewer.
