    Army West Point completed an incredible come-from-behind victory to defeat visiting Georgia Southern, 28-27, to remain unbeaten at home Saturday afternoon at Michie Stadium.
    The Black Knights went down 14-0 early in the first quarter as Georgia Southern took advantage of some early Army miscues.
    However, the Black Knights battled back, capping off a 15-play, 75-yard, eight-minute drive with a one yard touchdown rush by senior running back Sandon McCoy. The extra point by feshman kicker Quinn Maretzki made it a 14-7 contest.
    The back-and-forth battle ensued, as Georgia Southern pulled out to a 21-7 lead on a 24-yard touchdown pass from Shai Werts to Cam Brown with 9:24 left in the half.
    Three fumbles lost in the first half played a big part in the 21-7 deficit at the half for the Black Knights as they outgained the Eagles 147 total yards to 137 yards in the half, including 122 rushing yards to Georgia Southern’s 96. Read More

    The Black Knights got things going with their first drive of the second quarter. They capped off a 10-play, 77-yard drive with a 10-yard touchdown reception for freshman running back Tyrell Robinson, his second receiving touchdown of the season.
    The extra point attempt by senior kicker Landon Salyers was blocked, however, and it was a 14-6 ballgame. Read More
