The Army Black Knights fell at Vanderbilt on Saturday night. Each week honors an offensive, defensive, and unsung hero of the game. Look inside to see who gets the honors this week.

OFFENSE: Larry Dixon

Dixon, a freshman slotback from Bremerton, Wash., finished the game with 92 rushing yards. He had a 57-yard run in the third quarter that set the Black Knights up for their second touchdown of the game.

DEFENSE: Geoffrey Bacon

Bacon, a freshman linebacker from Milwaukee, Wis., led the Black Knights in tackles with 13 including 1/2 for losses. He broke up one pass and also intercepted a pass which he returned 70 yards for an Army touchdown.

UNSUNG HERO AWARD: Steven Erzinger

Erzinger, a senior linebacker from Houston, Texas, finished the game with nine tackles and two quarterback hurrys, one of which was a key in forcing the interception that was returned by Bacon for a score.
