Today's Biggest College Football Upset!

Air Force, at 5-3 going into the game today, traveled to West Point to play 1-7 Army at Michie ("mikey") Stadium.  Army scored first and never relinquished the lead.  After a wacky 4th quarter--in which Air Force recovered an onside kick and drove for a touchdown, and later fumbled and Army recovered in the end zone for a touchdown--here's how ESPN's Sports Feed ended the game:
3rd and Goal at ARMY 4 | Kale Pearson pass intercepted by Nate Combs at the Army 1, returned for no gain to the Army 16.
Air Force 21, Army 41 | Final
Well done, Army.

How can Army only have two wins this season? Relatively easy answer. In the Air Force game, Army intercepted AF three times and recovered two AF fumbles. Army did not throw an interception nor fumble the ball at all.

In the previous eight games, Army fumbled the ball 24 times and lost it 12 of those times. Army is strictly a running team, you can't do that and win. In those same eight games, Army's opponents only fumbled six times and turned it over to Army four times.

I was at the game and yelled myself hoarse and caught a cold; home sick today. I have had season tickets for the last four years. I don't know who was wearing the Army jerseys Saturday but they couldn't have been the bumblers I've seen in the past. Whoever they were, I hope they show up for Army-Navy.
