The Army Black Knights coaches and players know the importance of Saturday's game, as they host the Ball State Cardinals out of the Mid-Atlantic Conference and who enter the game with a 5-3 record.
"The way I see it, it's like starting over fresh," adds Maples. "We just have to come into the 2nd half of the season with a mindset that we can still make this bowl. But we have to take it one game at a time, that's all we can do ... especially in the state that we're in. We're desperate for a win right now."
The contest will be the 3rd consecutive week that Army has faced a MAC opponent.
So who will prevail on Saturday?
So come join other Army fans as Army takes on Ball State on Saturday (10/27).
