Army Black Knights Football Schedule in 2014
The Army Black Nights are ready to take to the battlefield this season
and clash with some of the best college football teams in all the land. The Knights have a lot of talented players, and they
are ready to unleash them on the rest of the nation in 2014. The Army Black Knights are not aligned with any specific conference,
yet they have annual games against both Air Force and Navy. The school is one of only seven universities not associated with
a conference for football, the others being: Navy, Notre Dame, BYU, Old Dominion, New Mexico State and Idaho. This independence
allows the Black Knights to play a variety of teams each and every season, which is a rather unique experience for a fan that
loves to get out to their favorite team's home games as often as possible. Last season the Knights finished with a 3-9 record
as one of just three independent teams not to notch a winning record. The Knights know that they are better than that, and
they're out to prove it in 2014. This team is looking to play well at home this season, and they can make it happen with the
support of their fans. With some tough matchups on the docket, they could really use the crowd support at Michie Stadium.
Saturday, September 6th the first home game of the 2014 season will be held at Michie Stadium in West Point, New York. A sell-out
crowd is expected as loyal Army fans and alumni will be on hand to get an early idea of what to expect from this year's Black
Knights team. The Buffalo Bulls will be the opponents during the Black Knights' first home game and you can expect Army to
lay it all on the line to get a victory in the first home game of the season. On October 11th the always tough Rice Owls come
to Michie Stadium to take a shot at the Black Knights. These two teams have squared off before, and if this game is anything
like the previous matchups it could come right down to the wire.
The final home game of the season will be on November
22nd against the Fordham Rams. This will be the final game at West Point for all of the graduating players, and die-hard Army
fans will definitely want to make it special by showing their gratitude for these players' four years of hard work. Of course
the last game of the season is the Army/Navy game which will be held at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. Always
one of the most exciting games of the year, the Army/Navy game is a national event and if you have never actually attended
one of these battles you should start making plans to be in Baltimore on December 13th as soon as possible. There are plenty
of other great home games on the schedule as well this season, so take a look and get ready for another great year of Army
Army Black Knights Football History
Perhaps no other team in college football can boast
as proud of a history as the Army Black Knights who first began intercollegiate play all the way back in 1890. Army is one
of the few football teams that plays independently of any conference. While many elite college football teams are full of
players more interested in playing in the NFL than in playing for their college team, this is never the case at Army. The
student athletes at Army have already dedicated themselves to a post college career in service to their country and are out
there on the field every game representing both the United States and the Army. Army has won three national championships,
all three of them coming in consecutive seasons in 1944, 1945, and 1946. Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower played on the
1921 Army team alongside former Army General Omar Bradley. The school has produced three Heisman Trophy winners: Doc Blanchard,
Glenn Davis, and Pete Dawkins.
There is no atmosphere quite like that of Michie Stadium
on game day. Tens of thousands of students, alumni and members of the armed forces come out to support their team, decked
out in Army colors. Game day really starts early in the morning with face paint, signs and, of course, tailgating. Any sports
fan would love to experience this special atmosphere, so get tickets to see the Army Black Knights match up against some of
the best teams in college football including the football teams of both the Air Force Academy and the Naval Academy. Games
against either of the other armed forces academies are among the most thrilling spectacles in all of sports and watching these
contests on television can be great but it really pales in comparison to being in the stands for one of these games and feeling
the electricity in the air.
