Army shocked Vanderbilt on Saturday, 16-13, to improve their record to 3-3.
Each week ArmySports.com honors an offensive, defensive, and unsung hero of the game. Look inside to see who gets the honors this week.
Army pulls out a thrilling victory in overtime over an SEC opponent.
OFFENSIVE STAR OF THE GAME
C No. 57 Zach Peterson
Peterson was center for an offense that ran for 222 yards on a pretty good Vanderbilt defense. He not only snapped the ball to Trent Steelman
when Steelman scored that incredible 2-yard run but he was also in the thick of blocking for Steelman on that play.
DEFENSIVE STAR OF THE GAME
This is Rodriguez' second time being honored as a the ArmySports.com Army Defensive Player of the Week. We try to spread this award around but Rodriguez led the team in tackles with 13 and also made a game saving forced fumble on Vanderbilt tailback Warren Norman
. Without that fumble Army might be looking at a 2-4 record and their bowl hopes dimmed.
UNSUNG HERO OF THE GAME
DE No. 55 Brad Marren
Brad Marren didn't show up in the final stats but he played a big factor in Army's win. He continually put pressure on Vanderbilt quarterback Larry Smith
throughout the game and helped cause at least one interception when he hit Smith's hand as he released his pass.
