WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) -- Army has won only one of its first eight games, but now has a chance at some sort of redemption.

The Black Knights host Air Force (5-3) on Saturday at Michie Stadium, and a win would be the first step toward capturing the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy, emblematic of supremacy among the three service academies.

The annual round-robin tournament decides who wins the hardware, and Air Force (5-3) has won the competition outright the past two years. Army hasn't won it since 1996.

Navy beat Air Force 28-21 in overtime a month ago and right now is in the driver's seat.

Beating the Falcons is a tall task. Army has lost six straight and 14 of 15 in the series.
