Army vs. Stanford Final Score: An Accurately Predicted Throttling, Good Job Vegas

Army entered Stanford a 28 point underdog and was shutout 35-0. An inability to move the ball mixed with wearing down along the defensive front doomed the Black Knights from the start.

There was no let down for the Cardinal as they dominated the point of attack. Kevin Hogan went 20 for 26 for 216 yards and 4 TDs, 3 going to WR Devon Cajuste. Barry Sanders Jr. led the rushing attack with 92 yards and Ty Montgomery led receivers with 86 yards and a score. The Cardinal ran for 199 yards as a team and capitalized on one interception, one fumble, and 2 turnover-on-downs.

Army was unable to move the ball, as they only had one drive that went more than 50 yards. QB Angel Santiago played for 3 quarters and was benched in favor for A.J. Schurr, who led the team in rushing with 65 yards in less than one quarter of play. Stanford was able to limit Army to less than 200 yards rushing and only 9 yards passing. Larry Dixon showed bursts of acceleration but was held to 60 yards. Terry Baggett was limited to just 28 yards on 6 carries.

Army's defense held off the Cardinal attack as long as they could, but the offense could not move the ball. Army only averaged 3.6 yards on the ground. The only time Army threatened to score they were unable to convert on 4th down. A bright note for Army is they were able to improve their mental mistakes as they were only penalized twice for 20 yards.

Army will look to figure out ways to move the ball as they travel to Wake Forest. Stanford has the next week off before they head up the coast and play Washington.
