Army defeated Rice in an overwhelming way this past weekend. Groups split their time between either the football game or the Ocktoberfest being held this past weekend. Pictured at the left is Mike Jenson, Alfonso Cotto, Monty Putman, Audra, Joe and Sandra O'Connell. The summary of the game is from the NCAA.com website.
The Black Knights dominated the Owls by 37 points for the largest margin of victory ever against the Owls. The Army squad came into the game with quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw throwing for only 116 yards on the season. The Black Knights stuck to the running game script, with Bradshaw attempting only two passes with zero yards and an interception -- the third game he has finished with zero passing yards this season.
