I don’t know about you, but I love football. I have always been loyal to the Army Black Knights and for many years it was somewhat depressing. But in 2017, under Coach Jeff Monken, Army had a great season. Finishing with 10 wins and 3 losses, Army showed us they do know how to handle the pigskin as well as they handle weapons of warfare.
Plus they defeated San Diego State in the Armed Forces Bowl played in Fort Worth, Texas.
Coach Monken is the leader the Black Knights needed in running the Triple Option. And run they do… But will they do it again in 2018?
I say YES!
And I want to share the Army Black Knight football schedule that has been released for 2018… I will tell you how the team they are playing played in 2017 and I will give my prediction…
Wouldn’t it be great to see Army in the top 10 or even better… The National Championship?
I can dream can’t I???
Here’s the football schedule:
Game #1 – 9/1/2018 – Away In Durham, North Carolina Against Duke Blue Devils
Duke finished 2017 at 7-6. Army beat them at home in a close one… Duke 16 Army 21.
Now Army travels to Duke’s home field.
I predict another close game, but Coach Monken will hold Army together… I predict Army 34 Duke 27.
Game #2 – 9/8/2018 – Home Against Liberty Flames
Liberty is about to become an Independent moving away from the Big South. They finished 2017 at 6-5 and did not play Army.
I will say that Liberty put it to Baylor in their first game last year, but they should not expect the same with Army this year… My prediction is Army 20 Liberty 7.
Game #3 – 9/15/2018 – Home Against Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
Hawaii had a dismal 2017 at 3-9. And they are traveling all the way to play Army and I predict jet lag and a tough Army defense in this game.
Sorry Hawaii, but it will be aloha to you… Army 45 Hawaii 6
Game #4 – 9/22/2018 – Away In Norman, Oklahoma Against The Oklahoma Sooners
Uh oh… Oklahoma who finished 12-2 and lost to Georgia in the Rose Bowl. Can Army make a play against this ferocious team?
I really hope my prediction is completely wrong, but I believe this will be an Army loss. Army 0 Oklahoma 47.

Game #5 – 9/29/2018 – Away In Buffalo, New York Against The Buffalo Bulls
Buffalo finished 2017 at 6-6 and lost to Army by 4 points. Can the Bulls do better in 2018?
I say that Army will be on fire because of the Oklahoma game and will want to show the world they are bad asses.
Army 19 Buffalo 17.
Game #6 – 10/13/2018 – Away In San Jose, California Against The San Jose State Spartans
This is a dangerous game for Army. San Jose State is known to jump when no one figures they will. With only 2 wins in 2017, Army better not go in lightly.
They won’t because Coach Monken will read and heed this… Army 64 San Jose State 14.
Game #7 – 10/20/2018 – At Home Against The Miami, Ohio Redhawks
The Redhawks finished last season at 5-7. If Army was playing them on their own turf, I would be slightly concerned. But the Army home crowd will put the Redhawks nervous… Army 33 Miami (OH) 21.
Game #8 – 10/27/2018 – Away At Ypsilanti, Michigan Against The Eastern Michigan Eagles
In 2017, Army just barely won against the Eagles. Finishing at 5-7, the Eagles will surely want some revenge on the Black Knights in 2018. And sad to say, I believe they will. Army 17 Eastern Michigan 21.
Game #9 – 11/3/2018 – Home Against The Air Force Falcons
Army destroyed the fly- boys in 2017 21-0. Air Force did finish the season 5-7.
Army will be tough in this game… At home and coming off a loss… Army 38 Air Force 3.
Game #10 – 11/10/2018 – Home Against The Lafayette Leopards
I believe that Lafayette is walking into a mine field in this game. Army wants to finish the year with a great record so they will hand the Leopards an old fashioned Army “whoopin.”
Army 34 Lafayette 0.
Game #11 – 11/17/2018 – Home Against The Colgate Raiders
Colgate had a good year in 2017 at 7-4, but they are way out of their league when they go up against Army in what will probably be a cold and snowy November game.
Army 44 Colgate 17.
Game #12 – 12/8/2018 – In Philadelphia Against The Navy Midshipmen
Navy is going to want to come back from their 2017 loss in the huge rivalry but….
You will need to practice hard and swab a lot of decks to have a chance. You cam too close last year… Army 24 Navy 19.
Yea… Only 2 losses is what I predict.
C’mon Black Knights!
You can do it!
Let’s hear all other thoughts, and yea, you sailors out there can talk some smack if you really feel the need and will be able to handle it when we hand your Midshipmen a loss.
I hope you enjoyed this 2018 Army football schedule.
Go Army! Beat Navy!
