The most exciting team nobody talks about.

NCAA Football: Army at Air Force Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

One of the many things that sucks about the “Power 5”/”Group of 5” split is that the college football media don’t bother covering a lot of great stories that happen in the G5 ranks.

One of those is Army. You might have heard the Black Knights are 7-2, but you probably haven’t heard how close and exciting a lot of their games have been.

  • They beat Buffalo on a ballsy fake punt. With a four-point lead and 2:28 to go, Army did this:

Army is a triple-option team, so you can probably guess what happened to the rest of the clock. By the way, that guy’s quick for a punter.

  • They beat Eastern Michigan by barely stopping a two-point conversion (jump to 2:05):
  • After Temple scored what looked like the game-winning touchdown, Army matched them with 6 seconds to play, and then won in overtime:
  • Even their losses are exciting! Tulane pulled out a last-second win against Army:

Army has already accepted a trip to the Armed Forces Bowl on December 23, where they are slated to play a Big Ten team. Purdue, Nebraska, Minnesota, Maryland, or an at-large team will have their hands full. Go get ‘em, boys.

This week, Army hosts Duke. Did anyone play it?
