The model has factored in that one big advantage that Army will have on Saturday is the play of quarterback Kelvin Hopkins, Jr.
The Black Knights don’t throw the ball often because they don’t have to, but Hopkins has been very reliable when called upon. The junior has averaged 11 yards per pass attempt this season and, as captain of a triple-option offense, he’s extremely dangerous in the run game as well.
In fact, Hopkins has rushed for 788 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, second on the team in both categories behind Darnell Woolfolk. And in his biggest game of the season against bowl-bound Eastern Michigan, he ran for 105 yards and completed 7-of-8 pass attempts for 126 yards and two touchdowns.
But just because Army can move the ball doesn’t mean it can cover almost a touchdown spread.
Even though Army will retain the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy in a tie, Navy still has the chance to deny the Black Knights back-to-back victories in the series for the first time ever. As if this game needed any extra incentive, that should help make sure Navy is sharp.
Despite their lack of victories this season, the Midshipmen are still averaging 289 yards rushing per game and have found an explosive playmaker in Zach Abey. He’s accounted for six total touchdowns (four rushing, one receiving and one passing) in the last three weeks. Army will have to keep close tabs on him in order to cover the spread.
