Army rallies twice to top the Mean Green.


OFFENSIVE STAR OF THE GAME


RT No. 67 Jason Johnson


Johnson has been solid all season. His great blocking helped the Black Knights take control during the second half and gain 200 yards on the ground. When things looked bleak, his blocking helped to spring quarterback Trent Steelman for a 55 yard gain that was a key factor in Army getting back in control of the game.

DEFENSIVE STAR OF THE GAME


DB No. 20 Jordan Trimble


North Texas has a wide open passing attack and Jordan Trimble saw extensive duty on Saturday. Trimble finished with a team leading 11 tackles including 5 solos. His biggest play of the game was in third quarter when he intercepted a Riley Dodge pass at the Army 16 to snuff out a North Texas drive.


UNSUNG HEROES OF THE GAME


DB No. 37 Ty Shrader

FS No. 17 Chase Prasnicki


Prasnicki, a senior, received his most extended playing time of the season after starter Donovan Travis left the game with an injury during the first possession of the game. He went on to finish with 7 tackles and a pass break up. Shrader, a plebe, put a dagger into the Mean Green's heart when he intercepted a Riley Dodge pass to essentially give Army the victory. Shrader, who is a keeper, also had a fumble recovery and 3 tackles in the win.
