With a 70-14 victory, Army became the Armed Forces Bowl’s first three-time champion, previously winning the bowl in 2010 and 2017. They are now 3-0 in the Armed Forces Bowl. In addition, Independent teams remain undefeated (5-0) in the bowl game.
The most dominating performance in Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl history now belongs to the Army Black Knights. And that seems fitting. They didn’t give the Houston Cougars much of a chance Saturday afternoon at Amon G. Carter Stadium, rolling to six first-half touchdowns en route to a 70-14 victory in the 16th edition of the Armed Forces Bowl.
“Thanks to the folks here in Fort Worth, it is a great experience for our team. We have felt so welcomed here the last few years. Our guys do not get too many chances to experience things like this except for bowl games. We get to grow as a team during this opportunity. This is a great bowl game, it was a great football game last year and we felt so pleased with how we were treated. We were treated like celebrities everywhere we went.
There are no secrets about what the Houston Cougars and Army West Point Black Knights want to do in Saturday’s Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl. Who wins the 16th annual game at Amon G. Carter Stadium will be determined by who does it best.
