Terrible start - poor defense and poor offense. Is this the Army team that played Oklahoma to overtime?
Another TD for Buffalo - the men playing the boys so far.

Buffalo punting but Army roughing the kicker penalty gives the Bulls a first down. First play run for TD but Buffalo penalty calls it back. Still in Army territory at the 26.

Pass to the end zone ruled incomplete. Under review. Incomplete stands. 3rd and 14.

Army penalties have been key in keeping Buffalo moving in this first quarter.

On the bright side, the refs are making calls against Buffalo.

On 4th and 14, Buffalo elects to go for it. Takes their second time out of the half. Only have one left.

Pass goes way out of the back of the end zone. Flag on the play. Ruled no pass interference on Army as pass was uncatchable. The contact was well past the back of the end zone.

Army will take over.

It's pretty obvious that Army's collective heads are not in this game. We dodged a bullet by not giving up points after that interception.

Army holds after the penalty to turn Buffalo over on downs; a flag was thrown for defensive pass interference, but the ball was uncatchable. A bit of a break there.

Army somehow salvages the turnover and gets the ball back still only down 7-0. Buffalo is 1-9 to start the day passing, with the TD catch and run being the only one

Reference the coin toss post, last week OU won the toss and (for the first time in my memory) took the ball rather than deferring to the second half.

Kelvin finally completes a pass to a guy wearing the same colored jersey after three straight interceptions going back to last week.

Army scores to tie game at 7-7.

Key play a pass for a first down and a roughing the passer penalty to tack on more, giving Army first down at the 9.

Now that drive looked pretty. Pounding it inside, bouncing outside, Hopkins with a pretty pass, some penalty benefit, and a great toss to punch it in. Good drive by the cadets.
