AREA GRADE COMMENTS
PASSING OFFENSE
C+
Spotty performance but in the end the job got done. No disasterous interceptions for TDs so things are improving. Two nice touchdown passes from Carson Williams to Justin Larson and Jeremy Trimble. Trimble made a super run after his catch.
RUSHING OFFENSE
B
Army's running game gave the Cadets a chance on Saturday. Patrick Mealy and Tony Dace combined for 104 yards rushing to help lead Army.
PASSING DEFENSE
C+
Temple Adam DiMichele racked up 359 yard passing on the day but was intercepted twice by Army's defenders. Josh Mitchell and Brandon Thompson both picked DiMichele off for Army.
RUSHING DEFENSE
A-
Solid performance here by the Army defense. Limited Temple to just 104 yards rushing and just 1 touchdown scored. Caleb Campbell had an impressive forced fumble that seemed to change the course of the game.
SPECIAL TEAMS
A-
The scoring returns by Trimble and Corey Anderson were huge. Tolson had one field goal blocked and missed another. He did make a third from 32-yards out. Tolson had a super day punting, garnering a long punt of 64-yards and 44.8 yard per punt average.
COACHING
B
Super win. The offense seems to be slowly improving. Great work with special teams. The defense, while not perfect, is scrappy and gives the team a chance.
OVERALL GRADE
B
A total team effort. A win is a win and gives the team something to build on. Now with Tulane and Central Michigan coming up the Black Knights could possibly get above .500 if they work hard and keep focused.
