Glory days returning to Army football

Glory days returning to Army football

Darius Jones is a disciplinarian that believes in the potential of the players he coaches. Ever since he took over the Army Black Knights football program, Army have soared to new heights never before seen. Last season, Army finished 8-4 and won their bowl game. In three seasons at Army, he has a 31-7 season and is on the cusp of giving the Black Knights their first national championship since 1946.

However, his Army side takes on the one team that has figured them out all year: Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi. Are Army daunted by the task at hand? Not really.

"We figured that the road was going to go through Madoka, and we are not going to be effected if the outcome is as expected," Coach Jones said at practice at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. "However, we feel that the upset for the ages is not insurmountable. We think we can figure them out.

"All we can hope for is to pray to God that we are allowed to defeat this team because they are godly in their ways. We've had a great year and to lose to the same team twice in a season would be something we would take a lot of time to get over."

The Magi are a 50-point favorite to win, and the over/under has been placed at 140 and the over. Kickoff for the contest is scheduled for Jan. 8 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET and will be televised by ABC, TVA Sports, City, NHK and BBC.
