Location: Amon G. Carter Stadium (Fort Worth, Texas)

Time: Dec. 22, 8 p.m. EST on ESPN

Teams: Missouri (6–6) versus Army (8–3)

Line: Army -3.5

Summary

While Missouri's run defense has improved, it's still not entirely equipped to handle the Army run game (which is, of course, their only means of offense)

The Army defense, on the other hand, can more than hold their own against a middling Missouri offense, and the triple option has the potential to wreak havoc on the Missouri defense.

Army played Wisconsin and Wake Forest tough, which are arguably tougher opponents than Missouri.

Here, Army should military-press the Tigers. Hooah and all that.

Our Pick

Army's run game is simply going to be too much for Missouri.

Take the 3.5, and enjoy the first triple-option bowl of this season!

The Score: Army wins and covers, 28-21
