Looking ahead to Army's Saturday home opener vs. Hawaii - Sal broke some good news

Junior linebacker Steve Erzinger, who took a blow to the head in the second half against Eastern Michigan, practiced Tuesday and should play Saturday. Senior linebacker Sean Westphal, Erzinger’s backup, who left the game late in the fourth quarter, practiced without limitations.
Senior free safety Donovan Travis was limited in practice.

That's encouragement for the defense which will face a high powered Hawai'i offense. An interesting stat is that Hawai'i brings the NCAA's top passing offense hitting 55% for 459 yards in their opener against USC.

Army, incidentally boasts the #2 passing defense giving up only 44% completions after giving up just 31 yards on 9 attempts last week against Eastern Michigan.

After week 1, Jared Hassin's three TDs are good enough for 6th in Div. 1-A scoring and Steve Anderson's 10 tackles place him at 49th in the nation in tackles, but more importantly I think it shows Anderson is back on track to lead the defense and have a great senior year.
