The Black Knights bounced back after a 24-10 loss at then-No. 14 Cincinnati on Sept. 26 and won their fifth consecutive home game.
Abilene Christian (0-2) was stopped on fourth down on each of its first two drives and went three-and-out on its third before Army recovered an onside kick and Jakobi Buchanan’s 3-yard TD run made it 23-0 with 10:15 left in the second quarter.
Sandon McCoy scored on a 1-yard run to open the scoring midway through the first quarter, Landon Salyers made a 43-yard field goal on the first play of the second and, after an ACU punt went out of bounds, a 3-yard TD run by Jones made it 16-0 about two minutes later. On the ensuing kickoff, Salyers onside kick bounced off a Wildcats player and was recovered by Army at its own 42 and then, on a third-and-3 play, Jones ripped off a 41-yard run to the 10 that set up Buchanan’s touchdown.

The point spread favored the Bulldogs two weeks ago, but luck did not. Things couldn’t have gone much worse for them, who lost 37-14 against the Eastern Kentucky Colonels.
A well-balanced attack led Army West Point over the Abilene Christian Wildcats every single quarter on their way to victory last week. Army West Point blew past Abilene Christian 55-23. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Army West Point had established a 38-10 advantage. Their QB Jemel Jones was on fire, passing for one TD and 52 yards on seven attempts in addition to rushing for two TDs and 138 yards.
Army West Point’s victory lifted them to 3-1 while Citadel’s defeat dropped them down to 0-3. The Black Knights have been dynamite on the offensive side of the ball, averaging 36 points per game. We’ll see if the Bulldogs can find some way to disarm them.
