The Army football team pulled off an epic win over San Diego State in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl on Saturday evening.
Army went down to the wire in a wild back-and-forth game that was won on a two-point conversion from the Black Knights in the closing seconds of the game. Army’s two-point conversion came after San Diego State went ahead 35-28 with less than six minutes left.
After pulling within one point with just 18 seconds remaining on the clock at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Army gambled big and the risk paid off.
The wild win capped off a ten-win season for the Black Knights; it’s first since 1996.

San Diego State gave one last attempt to earn the victory with a wild play filled with laterals, but they came up short.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about Army’s ten-win season is the fact that the offense completed just 20 passes for 361 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions on the year.
