Bilo's Quick Heart of Dallas Bowl Recap

Army 38, North Texas 31

Army avenged an earlier 2016 loss to North Texas by outlasting UNT in the Heart of Dallas Bowl in OT. Army picked up their first bowl win since 2010, and won their most games in a season since 1996. Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 129 yards and a score, and completed 2 of his 3 attempted passes on the day.
Army controlled tempo in the game, holding the football for over 36 minutes, but could not keep the Mean Green from answering scores in regularity. Alec Morris passed for 304 yards and 3 TDs in the loss for UNT.
Army rushed for 6 TDs on the day, the 4th time they did that this season. The Cadets averaged 6.5 yards per carry. Elijah Riley was a savior on defense, as he picked off 2 UNT passes in the Army red zone, helping preserve the win.
Army snapped a 3 game losing streak in OT games dating back to 2009.
