Sorry boys and girls, had to take a little trip down to Daytona last weekend. But we’re back, and we have a good one today.

The Army Black Knights make a visit to the Carrier Dome today at 2 PM to take on the Syracuse Orange. You may remember Army came into the Dome last year and beat the Orange 13-12 with a last second game winner off the crosse of David Symmes, and this year will certainly not be any easier.

Army is 3-0 and coming off of a big win over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Syracuse meanwhile is attempting to put the worst loss in recent Dome history behind them.

A loss to Army would put the Orange on a potential course of losing seven straight (Albany, Army, Virginia, Hopkins, Rutgers, Duke, Notre Dame) before finally getting a chance at Hobart on April 3. That’s a real scary situation.

Here’s the good news, the defense is solid and there is a good goalie in net.
