Reports: Army at Air Force postponed due to Covid-19

The Commander-In-Chief trophy might take a bit longer to settle this season. Will the teams want to make up the game on the third weekend in December?

The third college football game for this weekend has been rescheduled according to Brent Briggeman of the Gazette in Colorado Springs, as the Army Black Knights will not take on Air Force Falcons in West Point as originally scheduled.

Army was listed as a -6.5 favorite at home at DraftKings Sportsbook before the game was taken off the board.

How this affects the Commander-in-Chief trophy is still to be learned, as the three-game annual series between the three FBS service academies will need to make up this game. Air Force has already defeated Navy 40-7 earlier this season. If they could spring the upset on the Black Knights Saturday, they’d lock up the prize earlier than usual.

Army is scheduled to play Navy on December 12th in Philadelphia, which would be the only open weekend Air Force has between now and the 2020 Mountain West Conference Championship Game. If Air Force doesn’t qualify for the title (and currently at 0-2 in the league that’s highly likely), the teams could play on the weekend of December 19th as independent Army does not have a league title game to consider.
