Western Kentucky edges Army in 21-17 comeback win
WKU 21, ARMY 17

WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) -- Once recruited to play at West Point,
Antonio Andrews gave 36,276 fans at Michie Stadium a bitter
memory in the final seconds of Army's last home game.

The nation's leading rusher ran for 117 yards and the
game-winning touchdown with 32 seconds left as Western Kentucky
went 87 yards in 3:49 and came back to beat Army 21-17 Saturday
in the teams' first meeting.

"We just got down the field quick and got a scoring
opportunity," Andrews said. "It just all happened fast, so it's
all exciting."

Quarterback Brandon Doughty was 16 for 24 for 199 yards, two
touchdowns and an interception for the Hilltoppers (6-4, 2-3 Sun
Belt), who clinched bowl eligibility for the third straight
season.

"It's a great way to win a game," Hilltoppers coach Bobby
Petrino said. "I'm excited about the way we won the game."

Held scoreless in the first half, Western Kentucky went up on
Doughty's second touchdown pass to Willie McNeal (101 yards
receiving), which made it 14-10 early in the fourth.

"Once we started running the ball with power, it opened up our
passing game," Petrino said.

Army responded to take a 17-14 lead on Terry Baggett's 20-yard
rush with 7:03 to go, but couldn't stop Andrews as the
Hilltoppers marched against the clock in the final minutes.
Andrews ran in virtually unscathed for the go-ahead score.

Baggett had 102 yards for the Black Knights (3-7), who saw the
possibility of a bowl game slip away on senior day. Tony
Giovannelli added 82 rushing yards in the loss.

The Hilltoppers, held to a season-low 334 yards of total
offense, played in New York for the first time in their 94-year
history. Western Kentucky had faced another triple-option
academy, Navy, in a 19-7 win earlier this season, giving up just
107 yards.

Army, the nation's top rushing team, had more success, going for
277 yards.

Army was poised to get on the board first after Giovannelli's
68-yard scurry up the left sideline set the Black Knights up
with first-and-goal.

But Jonathan Dowling forced quarterback Angel Santiago to fumble
his keeper at the 2 two plays later, and Tyree Robinson
recovered to dash Army's drive.

Western Kentucky saw its own scoring opportunity wasted early in
the second when a TD pass to McNeal was called back on a
penalty. On the next play, third-and-11 from the Army 19, Thomas
Holloway intercepted Doughty's pass in the end zone.

Still scoreless, the teams traded possession throughout the
second quarter until, facing third-and-16 from the Hilltoppers'
37, Army's fortunes turned.

Santiago found Giovannelli over the middle for a 16-yard
completion, and a targeting penalty against Robinson - who came
in head-first - tacked on another 10 yards. Daniel Grochowski's
25-yard field goal eventually capped the drive and made it 3-0
Army.

Army's series to open the second half was going nowhere fast
until punter Alex Tardieu ran 20 yards on a fourth down fake,
giving the Black Knights new life at midfield. Then, Baggett
took a pitch up the right sideline 28 yards, setting up
Santiago's one-yard touchdown keeper. The Black Knights led 10-0
with 10:33 remaining in the third.

The Hilltoppers finally scored with 5:35 to go in the third when
Doughty found McNeal on a slant for an 11-yard touchdown,
cutting it to 10-7. Western Kentucky would go up 14-0 six
seconds into the fourth when Doughty side-armed another
touchdown pass through traffic to McNeal.

But Army wasn't done yet.

On third-and-4 from the 20, Baggett took Santiago's pitch right,
broke through traffic and skipped up the sideline for the score,
capping a 15-play, 75-yard drive and giving Army a 17-14 lead
with 7:03 to go.

The Black Knights, however, couldn't put Western Kentucky away -
not even after Andrews, at the end of a 16-yard run, fumbled two
plays into a crucial drive with 6:35 left.

As it turned out, Western Kentucky still had a 10-play, 87-yard
drive in store when it needed it most.

"It was fun to watch our players make the plays to win the
game," Petrino said.
