Game Notes, Army/UTEP

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Army plays against UTEP in El Paso this weekend. The Sun Bowl is one of my favorite venues for NCAA football, and accordingly one of my favorite bowl games out of all bowls. This is a game that fits Army's scheduling criteria, and I would love to see more games scheduled against Texas Western.

Here are Army's game notes. UTEP's notes are here. I think it's quaint how they refer to Army's offense as "wishbone". Must be a southwestern thing.

Now two games into the season, we're seeing injuries play a role. UTEP's starting QB Zack Greenlee didn't play in their last game vs. Texas due to a literal handful of injuries.

Greenlee tweaked the MCL in the first drive of the Miners 38-22 win over NMSU, and also popped out a shoulder, and dinged a finger, but the MCL strain has lingered over into the week.

By most accounts Greenlee, who recently transferred in from Fresno State, is by far the most capable quarterback on the Miners' roster. They played two QB's last week: Kavika Johnson and Ryan Metz who combined for 14/21 (0-0) vs Texas in Greenlee's absence. As it is Zack Greenlee is participating in practice and from what I can tell he's 100% and will start.

TV availability will depend on something called the American Sports Network and how far their reach extends. Knight Vision will also broadcast the game online.
