WEST POINT, N.Y.  -  The Army Athletic Association and CBS Sports Network announced on Thursday that all seven of the Black Knights' games at Michie Stadium in 2012 will kick off at 12 p.m. Army's seven-game home slate is its busiest since the 1994 season.

CBS Sports Network, set to begin its fourth year of broadcasting Black Knights' home games to a national television audience in high definition, is available to approximately 99 million homes nationwide through local cable, video and telco providers, as well as via satellite on DirecTV Channel 613 and Dish Network Channel 158.  For more information, go to www.cbssportsnetwork.com.

Starting times for the Black Knights five games away from West Point have yet to be announced.

Black Knight fans can order seats 24 hours a day at goARMYsports.com, or by calling 1-877-TIX-ARMY between the hours of 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Army opens the home portion of its schedule on Sept. 15 versus defending Mid-American Conference champion Northern Illinois. The Black Knights start a three-game homestand on Sept. 29 versus Stony Brook. After its game with Boston College on Oct. 6, Army hosts its annual homecoming game, taking on Kent State on Oct. 13.

After a week on the road, the Black Knights play back-to-back games on the banks of the Hudson, hosting Ball State on Oct. 27 and Air Force on Nov. 3. Army wraps up its home schedule on Nov. 17 versus Temple.

Season tickets are on sale with sideline seats priced at just $210. The full season ticket package represents a $40 savings off individual game prices and guarantees the opportunity to purchase the same number of tickets to the 2012 Army-Navy Game presented by USAA. The Coach E's Army (sections 5-8A) plan is available for $147. Three and four-game mini-plans are also on sale starting at $60.

Individual game prices vary from $32 for the Northern Illinois and Stony Brook games to $45 for the Air Force game. The Boston College and Kent State contests are priced at $39 per ticket, while the admission price for the Ball State and Temple games is $35. Group rates are also available. Fans that order 20-or-more tickets for a single game will receive a discounted price of $25 for all games except Air Force, which is priced at $35 for groups.

Army returns 14 players that started at least six games in 2011 and 34 players that started at least one game a year ago. The Black Knights welcome back their top seven rushers from last season's team that led the country in rushing yards per game, and 2012 will mark the first time in program history the Black Knights have returned two players who have rushed for 1,000 yards in a season (Jared Hassin, 2010; Raymond Maples, 2011). The Army defense returns 13 of its top 16 tacklers from 2011, including a group that combined for 15.0 of Army's 18.0 quarterback sacks.
