This is huge for the Black Knights as Monken has almost completely turned the program around. He led the Black Knights to their best season since 1996, winning eight games and snapping the 14-year streak against arch-rival Navy.

Army is off to their second straight 2-0 start. Prior to last season, the Black Knights hadn’t started 2-0 since 1996.
Black Knight fans believe in Jeff Monken and so do the higher-ups at the Academy, this is something I saw coming as Monken has shown he is the right guy for the job and cares about the school.
Army will look to go 3-0 on Saturday against #8 Ohio State. For more coverage of the game stay tuned to Forgotten 5 and follow @F5_BeatNavy on twitter for all of your up to date Army coverage.
