Most fans hoped for Dunn to start after he led Army a come-from-behind 20-17 overtime win over Tulane at Michie. Dunn, a senior, hit wide receiver Mike Wright for a 36-yard score on the last play of regulation to send the game to OT. Dunn replaced Williams late in the fourth quarter after he sustained a head injury. On the magical play, Dunn scrambled and threw the ball to the back of the end zone where it was tipped by a Tulane defender and caught by Wright.
Dunn wasn't done yet. With Army facing a 3rd-and-16 from Tulane's 21-yard line Dunn avoided a rush and ran for 13 yards.That shortened what would end up being Owen Tolson's winning field goal from 38 yards to 25.
Williams has been inconsistent, but has more experience than Dunn, who had one career passing attempt entering Tulane. More importantly, he's the quarterback of the future at West Point. Williams, a sophomore, has completed 67-of-133 passes (50.4 percent) this year with four touchdowns and four interceptions.
Said Army coach Thursday night on his weekly radio show: "We're going to start Carson. There's a lot of reasons that go behind the decision. Kevin is a great one. Kevin is going to play. I'll tell you that."
