Trent Steelman was money with his 101 yards. That's 3 straight games with 100+ yards for #8.
Steelman was injured and did not play against Air Force last season in a 24-14 road loss. He more than made up for that absence on this day in a contest featuring the top two rushing teams in the nation.
"It's a feeling I had never experienced before," the senior quarterback said after his first career victory over the Falcons. "It's a feeling I wouldn't change for the world. It's a big win for our program, but we have to turn around and go right back to work."
Steelman, who moved past the great Glenn Davis into third place all-time in rushing at West Point with 2,983 yards, passed for 100 yards and guided an attack that netted 314 yards rushing and held the ball for 36 minutes.
Trent wasn't the only guy dialed in on Saturday; Danny Wild certainly was, with a field-level view of the action and some great celebration shots of the team. Stellar stuff again from Danny.
It was difficult for me to even think about college ball until today after Pitt's seemingly annual collapse against Notre Dame. Army still being alive for the CIC trophy takes a little of the sting away but anyway that's why I'm so late getting this write-up out.
