SYNOPSIS FROM THE GAME

Army was outrushed for the first time this season, 270-259. The Buckeyes picked up 30 first downs to just 16 for Army. Ohio State also won the battle in total offensive yards, 586-278.

The Black Knights finished 3-of-4 on fourth-down conversions and 4-of-15 on third downs. The Black Knights held the Buckeyes to just 4-of-8 on third downs.

STAR OF THE GAME

Darnell Woolfolk finished as the Black Knights’ leading rusher for the first time this season after compiling 74 rushing yards against the Buckeyes.

 

ARMY HIGHLIGHTS AND GAME NOTES

  • Saturday’s game marked the first all-time meeting between Army and Ohio State.
  • The contest was also the largest non-Navy game crowd the Black Knights have played in front of in program history. There were 108,414 in attendance.
  • Woolfolk scored his team-leading fourth touchdown of the season.
  • Army tied a school record with a 99-yard scoring drive in the second quarter.
  • That drive was also the longest that Ohio State has given up in program history.
  • Kelvin Hopkins Jr. came in to throw his first pass of the 2017 season in the first quarter.
  • Zack Saum caught his first career pass in the opening frame.
  • Andy Davidson had a season-long rush of 37 yards, while also accumulating a season-best 54 yards rushing on the day.
  • England posted a season-high seven tackles before leaving the game with an injury.
  • Nachtigal recorded his first sack of the year.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • On the game’s opening possession, Ohio State used an eight-play, 75-yard drive that ate up 2:37 to give itself an early 7-0 lead.
  • After starting on its own 18, Army began its first drive of the game. The Black Knights rushed for 19, 4, 12 and 3 yards over the next four plays before being stopped at the Buckeyes 44-yard line. Unfortunately, that would be all Army would gain on the drive.
  • A  Zach Potter 38-yard punt forced the Buckeyes to begin their second possession of the game from their own six. However, Ohio State finished off another scoring drive, using 4:12 of the clock, after J.K Dobbins punched it in from two yards out to cap a 13-play, 94-yard scoring drive.
  • The Black Knights finally got things rolling with one minute remaining in the opening period. After a 33-yard punt by Drue Christmas that placed the ball at Army’s own one-yard line, the Black Knights strung together a more than impressive 18-play, 99-yard scoring drive that took 9:37. Woolfolk recorded Army’s lone touchdown after muscling his way into the end zone from three-yards out. Blake Wilson knocked in the point after to pull Army to within 14-7.
  • Two highlights from that drive were Army’s 4th-and-1 conversion from its own 39 and two third downs of seven yards late to keep the possession alive.
  • Ohio State regrouped and worked its way down to the Army 15. The Black Knights were able to keep the Buckeyes out of the end zone though after forcing them to throw two incomplete passes, while also notching a sack for a loss of one yard. Ohio State settled for a 33-yard field goal to take a 17-7 lead into the break.
  • Army received the ball to kick off the second half and worked its way down to the Ohio State 23-yard line. Unfortunately, the Buckeyes tackled Kell Walker for a loss of three to force the Black Knights into a long field goal attempt. Wilson’s 43-yard try sailed just wide and Army would fail to convert any points on the play.
  • On the ensuing possession, Ohio State started its drive with a 22-yard rush from Dobbins to push the ball to the Buckeye 48. Dobbins then broke free for a 52-yard touchdown run to extend the home team’s edge to 24-7.
  • The Buckeyes kicked off and Walker returned it a career-long 43 yards to put the Black Knights in good field possession. The sophomore started that return from the Army 1-yard line and weaved around multiple blockers for his long scamper.
  • A few plays later though, the Black Knights fumbled after a loss of two and turned the ball over at the Buckeyes 36-yard line for the game’s only turnover.
  • Ohio State used three plays to move the ball to the Army 20, before J.T. Barrett connected with Terry McLaurin for a 20-yard touchdown reception to push the Buckeyes advantage to 31-7.
  • The home team strung together one final scoring drive in the final frame after taking over the ball on downs following a missed conversion by Army on 4th-and-2 from the Ohio State 30. The Buckeyes saw Barrett team up with Austin Mack for a 9-yard touchdown reception with 7:01 remaining in the game. That score created a 38-7 gap between the teams.

UP NEXT

  • The Black Knights are back on the road next Saturday when they travel to New Orleans to take on Tulane. That contest is slated for an 11 a.m. kick off and will be carried on CBS Sports.

Army gives head coach Jeff Monken new multi-year contract

WEST POINT, N.Y. – Army West Point Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan has announced a new multi-year contract extension for football head coach Jeff Monken.

Monken is coming off a historic year on the gridiron for the Black Knights in 2016.

In his third year as Army head coach Monken led the Black Knights to their first win over Navy since 2001 and won a bowl game for the first time in six seasons. The last time the Black Knights accomplished both feats in the same season was in 1984. The eight wins in 2016 were the most in two decades, when Army went 10-2 in 1996.

“Jeff has been the right fit for the Army West Point football team since his arrival and this extension is a natural progression.” Army West Point Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan said. “In addition to building a winning program on the field, Jeff and his staff, including our Officer Representatives, believe strongly in the academy’s larger mission of developing leaders of character to lead the U.S. Army. We’re excited that Jeff will continue to lead our football program in the years to come.”

Last fall, Army ranked second nationally in rushing offense and ran for an Army single-season record 46 touchdowns, which eclipsed the 1945 national championship team. On the defense side, the Black Knights were consistently ranked in the top-10 in total defense and finished the year listed fourth in the nation in total defense.

Army was won 10 of its last 15 games under Monken’s direction. The Black Knights have scored at least 60 points four times during that stretch, marking the first time the Black Knights have accomplished that feat since Earl “Red” Blaik served as head coach.

“I want to thank West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen, Army West Point Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan and the entire West Point community for their confidence and trust in me to be Army’s head football coach,” Monken said. “My family and I are humbled and honored to be associated with the world’s premiere leadership institution and I am especially proud to have the privilege of coaching the outstanding young men that make up the Army West Point Football Brotherhood at the United States Military Academy.”

Monken was hired back on Dec. 24, 2013 and is currently in his fourth season with the Black Knights. He sports a 16-23 mark overall and has led the Black Knights to five straight victories dating back to last season. In addition to last year’s dramatic victory over Navy, Monken led Army to a thrilling season-ending 38-31 overtime defeat of North Texas in the Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl.
