Final Score: Army 35, Louisiana Tech 16
When: Saturday, Sept. 28, at 4 p.m.
Army and Louisiana Tech are two of the worst FBS performers so far this year, and they will settle the debate as to which team is better on Sept. 28. Army played Stanford tough in Week 3, but the Black Knights have looked like anything but a contender in every other game they've played.
Louisiana Tech, on the other hand, has lost close contests with its last two opponents and enters this game with a little momentum. Granted, it's not the winning momentum that the Bulldogs became accustomed to last season, but it's still momentum.
This game will be decided in the fourth quarter by the better offense. The more balanced attack will emerge victorious, and that's Louisiana Tech.
The Bulldogs have per-game averages of 199.5 yards through the air and 173.5 on the ground this season, and that's almost perfect blance. Army, on the other hand, is a run-first team that averages just 78 yards through the air.
Both these teams are terrible at finding the end zone, though, and neither has crossed the 20-point barrier as far as average points are concerned. It's going to be ugly, but someone has to win.
Prediction: Louisiana Tech 31, Army 28
