Prediction time: Duke

Army is a 3.5-point home underdog against Duke Saturday.

The Black Knights are 5-0 at Michie Stadium this season and have won five straight games. While, Duke has lost five straight games, all in Atlantic Coast Conference play.

Duke has defeated Army the past two seasons 44-3 at West Point in 2015 and 13-7 in monsoon-like conditions at Durham in 2016.

An Army win would…equal the Black Knights’ victory total (8) of last season and complete the academy’s fifth undefeated home slate in the last 50 years.

Sal Interdonato (Times Herald-Record Army football beat writer): Army 28, Duke 24. Expect this game to go down to the wire. Army didn’t attempt a pass in a 21-0 victory at Air Force last week. The Blue Devils defense will force Army to throw some this game.
