San Diego State's Rocky Long, who has the reputation of a defensive-minded coach, knew it and all the potential perils of facing a ground-based offense.

Long drives. Worn-out defenses. Frustrated players.

It all played out Saturday afternoon at Amon G. Carter Stadium, where the Black Knights pounded away with their top-ranked rushing attack and did just enough with it to come back for a 42-35 victory in the 15th annual Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl.

FORT WORTH -- San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny couldn't be stopped Saturday afternoon in the 15th annual Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl, but neither could the Army rushing attack.

Ultimately, a group of 10 Black Knights rushers outdid the Aztecs' one-man wrecking ball, as Darnell Woolfolk plunged in from 1 yard out late in the fourth quarter and Kell Walker easily scampered home for the winning two-point conversion in a 42-35 victory.
