Fourth Quarter Surge Lifts the Army Black Knights

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Army West Point football team earned a much-needed victory here Saturday afternoon, 21-13, over host Wake Forest.

The win ended the Demon Deacons’ nine-game winning streak over the Black Knights, and shifted Army to 5-3 on the season.

In the back-and-forth affair, Army used a 14-3 edge in the final frame to secure its third road victory of the season and first win over Wake Forest since 1989.

The Black Knights slightly outgained the Demon Deacons 383 yards to 343 yards. Leading the way for Army was Ahmad Bradshaw, who posted 65 rushing and 145 yards passing in the game. Edgar Poe was back to his old self, racking up 122 yards in the air for the Cadets.

The defense held Wake Forest to just 3-of-13 on third-down conversions.

The Black Knights return home to Michie Stadium on Nov. 5 when service academy rival Air Force comes to West Point. That contest is slated for a noon star.
