Another Liberty player called for targeting. Gives us a first down inside the five, when it would have been third and short. And it was a linebacker. HUGE break for Army.

And they take advantage, punching it in right after the penalty. Woolfolk. Salyers PAT good.

31-14. Army needed that in the worst way

What a catch by McClinton! A big interception on Liberty's first play!

He has been excellent this game.

Slomka makes Buckshot pay by punching in a short touchdown run! Army capitalizes off the interception. Salyers PAT good. Under 8 to go

Army 38
Liberty 14

Big difference between first and second halves for Army- even though the offense sputtered in the third period, fewer penalties, especially the below the waist blocks. So that's an adjustment by the coaching staff and the team for the better.

It is really good to see the Army team come back strong after buckling a little in the third quarter. Some good plays on defense plus the offense being able to move the ball on the ground. I have to credit both the players and coaches.

Langdon in at QB after Liberty punts on 4th and 31.

Army gets beat deep but Chris Skyers stays with him and strips the WR before he gets to the goal line. All Army in the 4th quarter.

38-14 Army wins!

All Army for 3/4 of the game. Rushing attack strong. Passing game hit on some big plays, room for improvement. No turnovers. Defense forced 3, plus two sacks. Elijah Riley shuts down a tall, physical, very good WR. Big games from Cooper, Woolfolk, Hopkins, Slomka, McClinton, Salyers.

Huge improvement from last week! Go Army!

And great 1/2time adjustments, with 0 penalties in the 2nd half.

O turnovers for the game.

Why were the stands so empty? The weather didn't appear to be bad. It didn't appear that the staff and faculty were there. That is the smallest crowd I recall seeing at Michie. No wonder we need to play OK for $$$$.
