Army vs. Navy game picks, predictions: College football odds, spread, lines

CFB-HQ on FanNation 12/10/2022 James Parks

The greatest rivalry in college football is set to kick off as Army and Navy renew their hostilities in the Week 15 regular season finale on Saturday.

As always, expect some good old-fashioned ground and pound running football as the service academies rely on their respective battery of gifted tailbacks to carry the day.

Army comes in at 5-6 on the year, averaging a shade under 30 points per game, has hit 300 or more yards rushing in four of its last six games, and has eclipsed 400 yards on the ground in two of those matchups, all victories.

Navy checks in at 4-7 overall with a 4-4 mark in AAC conference play, dropping very close decisions against the likes of SMU, Cincinnati, and Notre Dame, and ended its league slate with a statement win over a ranked UCF team.

Navy has dominated the rivalry in the 21st century, winning 14 straight games over Army from 2002 to 2015, but the Black Knights have made it close in recent years, winning four of the last six, before Navy took two of the last three, including the matchup last season.

What do the experts think of the matchup? Let's see how the College Football Power Index computer prediction model projects the game.
