Army routs Eastern Michigan, clinches bowl eligibility for third straight season
YPSILANTI, Mich. -- After battling through a 2-10 season as a freshman, Jordan Asberry knows the depth of where the Army football program was when coach Jeff Monken took over in 2014.
Now bowl eligible after Saturday's rainy 37-22 win at Eastern Michigan, the senior running back should close his career in the postseason for a third straight year -- a first for the Black Knights.
"Coach Monken and the staff have turned this program around," said Asberry, who caught a touchdown and ran for another. "We worked real hard, but we didn't really see the fruit of our labor [in 2015].
"That sets the stage for finishing this year strong, but also the next season for the guys that are going to be playing next year."

Army holds on to beat Miami (Ohio) in double OT in wild, must-watch ending
In one of the wildest finishes of the college football season, Army held on to escape Miami (Ohio) in double overtime on Saturday, stopping the RedHawks' attempt at a two-point conversion for a 31-30 decision.
After Miami quarterback Gus Ragland found Luke Mayock in the end zone for an 18-yard touchdown in the game's second overtime, RedHawks coach Chuck Martin opted to go for the win instead of settle for a tying extra point.
Army reacted well and nearly sacked Ragland on a play that appeared dead, but the QB flung a desperation pass. Receiver Kenny Young made the grab and weaved through Army defenders — only to come up a couple of few yards short of the end zone.
With the victory, Army became the first FBS team this season to not complete a pass in a game. Quarterback Cam Thomas, who rushed for 137 yards, only attempted two passes, both of which went incomplete.
Miami's Ragland passed for 329 yards and four touchdowns in the loss.
The team of Pete Martin ('83), David Reichard ('89), and Gary ('66) & Georgette Droubay took honors this past weekend at the Keene's Pointe Golf Outing. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed the camaraderie. We managed to get some pictures taken so Click Here to view the pictures taken. We hope to have some more of these events as the weather gets a bit more agreeable.
Caleb Brown ('04) acted as the POC for Army Footbally this past weekend at the Gator's Dockside in Ocoee. Caleb will be acting as POC again when Army plays Eastern Michigan next weekend on October 27th. I see a couple of familiar faces in the crowd and look forward to seeing more people at the Ocoee Dockside who can't make the drive to Baldwin Park. If you are interested in helping Caleb out, please let us know!

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Kelvin Hopkins Jr. was in no mood to talk after the best game of his career. Army's quarterback overheated late in the afternoon and was inside the Black Knights locker room getting treatment.
It was somehow fitting on a day Hopkins when made San Jose State's defense look ill all afternoon.
Hopkins ran for 99 yards and a season-high three touchdowns and threw for a fourth, and Army beat San Jose State 52-3 on Saturday.
''It was a warm day out there and I think everybody got a little gassed, and he did too,'' Black Knights coach Jeff Monken said. ''So did I. I was looking for water in the middle of the third quarter. I stared to feel a little woozy in my knees.''
