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:
How about a fake punt to ice the game?!@ArmyWP_Football takes down Buffalo, 21-17. pic.twitter.com/MGBsIUjNOd— CBS Sports Network (@CBSSportsNet) September 9, 2017
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?
