Football Continues Hot Start with Win over Miami OhioFor the first time since 1996, the Army West Point Football Team has started off its season 4-0 after defeating Miami (OH) by a score of 23-10 on Saturday at Michie Stadium.

With the result, the Black Knights have extended their winning streak at Michie Stadium to 13 games. The contest was highlighted by a career day from QB Christian Anderson who rushed for 236 yards, which stands as the sixth-most all-time in a single game. The feat falls 29 yards short of the Academy's quarterback rushing record, held by QB Ahmad Bradshaw (265 yds, 2017).

Anderson opened the game attacking the rushing record with a 72-yard touchdown statement on the team's third snap of the game.

The RedHawks (1-3) got off to a slower start, as the Black Knights' defensive unit forced the opposing team to punt on their first two possessions. Following an exchange of punts, including Army's first punt since the third quarter of the season-opener at Georgia State (Sept. 4), the Cadets responded on the following drive by coming up with their fourth takeaway of 2021 on a key CB Cameron Jones interception. Jones' snare was the third of his career. Read more.
