Army put together an incredible 99-yard drive in the 4th quarter of season opener
You know things are going well when you can march down the field for a 99-yard touchdown drive. It’s even better when you do it without completing a single pass.
That was the case in Army’s season opener against Middle Tennessee on Saturday. In the fourth quarter of the contest, the Black Knights put together a 19-play, 99-yard drive that ate up 12:26 off the clock.
The result was Army taking a commanding 42-0 lead in the final quarter, which ended up being the final score of the contest. It was a fitting ending to a game that was never once in question.
Yes you're reading this right.
99 yards on 19 plays.

Army’s possession started at its own 1-yard line with 1:32 left in the third quarter. After creating some breathing room with a 5-yard gain on the first play of thee drive by Sandon McCoy, there was really no slowing down for the Black Knights. They meticulously drove down the field and scored on a 22-yard run from Anthony Adkins with 4:06 left in the game.
Not a bad way to close out the contest.
Army finished the game throwing just four passes through the entire 60 minutes, completing two for 28 yards. The Black Knights start the season 1-0.
