Ross Thevenot has made 6 of 9 field goal attempts for Tulane. Matthew Campbell has connected on all three of his attemps for Army. The Cadets average almost 10 yards more per punt (net) than they Green Wave. However, all the kickoff coverage blunders by Army keep them from getting an edge here and make it even.

Bob Toledo (68-73) is in his 13th year as a head coach. Stan Brock (3-13) is in his second year at Army.
