WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) Jeff Monken's first year at Army probably hasn't gone the way he envisioned as the Black Knights try to right a season teetering on the brink.
At least there are two chances left on the schedule to really shine: service-academy games against Air Force and archrival Navy. Beat them and the brass is happy - and the team gets to take possession of the coveted hardware, the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy.
The trophy goes annually to the winning academy with the best record in round-robin competition. Air Force (5-2) could win a record 19th trophy with a victory at Army (2-5) on Saturday. The Black Knights haven't won it since 1996.
