Army Football Game Notes: The Wake Forest Game - - Army Black Knights Official Athletic Site

Army Offense Does Their Part
On Saturday versus Northern Illinois the Army offense was back to the impressive antics that all of the Black Knight fans are familiar with. The offense was led by senior quarterback Trent Steelman, fullback Larry Dixon, and running back Raymond Maples. Each of these players rush for over 100 yards on the ground, which is the first time an Army team has produced three players with 100 yards rushing in the same game since 1996.

Down 40-35 with 4:29 to play, Lynch connected with a streaking Martel Moore from eight yards out -- their second touchdown on the afternoon -- and the Huskies sent Army to its fifth straight home-opening defeat 41-40 on Saturday.
