Army dilemma: run or pass against Tulane
Thursday, September 29, 2011
WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) -- Army hosts Tulane on Saturday seeking to rebound from a humbling 27-point loss a week ago at Ball State.
Army (1-3) has the run game down pat -- the Black Knights rank third in the nation, averaging 372.25 rushing yards per game. But they have only one pass completion in 11 attempts the past two games and are averaging 38.8 yards per game through the air -- last in the nation.
Tulane (2-2) is averaging 246 yards passing and 125.5 rushing. Defensively, the Green Wave is allowing 377 yards and 30.5 points per game, holding opponents to only 122.25 rushing yards per contest while giving up 254.75 passing yards.
The last two meetings between the teams at Michie Stadium, a win by each, have been decided by three points or less.
