Don't like the call running into 9 defenders in front on 3rd and less than one at the one. On 4th down, Woolfolk take the ball and gets the first down and then the TD on second effort.

Army easily could have been stopped by the cut block call on the second play of the drive. It made it 2nd and 16. Hopkins completed a pass for 7 and carried himself for the final 9 and the first down. From there, they rolled down the field until they got the TD.

Bit earlier than I expected to see the backup QB. Interesting move.

BUF LB Khalil Hodge has 20 tackles today, wow

Over the break a short while ago, CBS Sports changed the Army total from 35 to 38 and are now showing it as 45. I don't know where the extra 3 points came from. I think it is 42-13 now. Strange.

How did we become this good. I thought I would always be a miserable college football fan.

This game definitely proves it's not how you start, it's how you adjust and finish. Terrible start of the game led to a dominant effort by the Black Knights. Rushing, passing, defense, punting, XPs, all clicking and going well. Rushing was spread out, both in terms of distribution and success. Also thought the tackling improved as the game went on.

Discipline problems consist in terms of sheer number of penalty yards, but man, this was a fun game to watch.

Buffalo picks up 12 on the third down run, but it was 3rd and 28 thanks to the penalty.

Buffalo punts. Out of bounds. Army ball. Running into the kicker penalty is declined. It would have still left Buffalo 4th and long.

CBS Sports has corrected the score, they now have it at 42-13.
