WEST POINT, N.Y. – Army hosts Temple on Saturday, and though the Black Knights can still make this lost year something wonderful with a win over archrival Navy in the season finale next month, beating the Owls could only help the general psyche of a snake-bitten team.
The Owls (3-6) are coming off a 34-10 loss at home to Cincinnati but have beaten Army (2-8) four straight times.
The game promises to be special for Army quarterback Trent Steelman. The four-year starter is poised to leave Blaik Field for the final time with more academy records in tow, including most career rushing touchdowns, most rushing yards in a season by a quarterback, most consecutive 100-yard games, and most career 100-yard games by a quarterback.
