Both the Red Sox and Yankees are vying to host future contests between Army and Navy.

Fitting story as spring training gets underway. The Sox and Yanks have both submitted bids to host the longstanding rivalry (which dates back to 1890) in 2018. The Baltimore Sun additionally passes along that the Patriots, Redskins, Ravens and Giants are also in consideration for future hosting duties. To date, Philadelphia has hosted 88 of 118 meetings between the two teams. They will make it 89 of 119 this coming season. Army had been on a 14-game losing streak in the series until they finally snapped that dud streak this past December.

Army fined defensive coordinator Jay Bateman $25,000 and suspended him for two weeks after it was found that Bateman was "involved in mishandling information about the Wake Forest football program."

In other words, the school's investigation found that Bateman and former assistant coach Ray McCartney received intel from former Wake Forest football staffer Tommy Elrod as part of the "WakeyLeaks" scandal. "Although no NCAA rules were violated, these actions do not represent our values," athletic director Boo Corrigan said. "We appreciate Wake Forest bringing this matter to our attention and I want to apologize to the Wake Forest administration and to the West Point community."
Feb 7 - 2:53 PM

Army junior QB Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 129 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries while throwing for 53 yards in Tuesday's 38-31 overtime win over North Texas in the Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl.

Lovely season by Army (8-5), who capped it all off by beating Navy for the first time in 14 tries to close the regular season and proceeding on for glory in the Heart of Dallas. Bradshaw's touchdown run came from distance, as he beat North Texas to the end zone on a 65-yard scamper with 7:41 remaining in the third quarter. In 12 games leading the Navy triple-option this season, the 5-foot-11, 196-pounder rushed for 826 yards and eight touchdowns.

Army freshman RB Kell Walker rushed for 94 yards on 16 carries in Saturday's 21-17 win over Navy.

As a team, Army racked up 316 yards rushing. The triumvirate of Walker, Andy Davidson and Ahmad Bradshaw accounted for 232 of those 316 yards. For his part, the 5-foot-9, 195-pound Walker averaged 5.9 YPC with a long run of 15 yards. This was his first game receiving double-digit carries and his 94 yards represent a season-high by a fair margin. His previous high came when he rushed for 59 yards against Buffalo on September 24.

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson rushed for 87 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries in Saturday's 21-17 win over Navy.

The streak is dead. Finally. Navy had been able to lord a 14-game winning streak over their ground-based brothers, but no longer, no more. Davidson scored on a pair of one-yard runs in the first and second quarters as Army built up a 14-0 halftime advantage. Navy would answer with 17 unanswered points in the second half before Black Knights QB Ahmad Bradshaw pushed his squad back in front, for good, via a short touchdown run which boosted Army to a 21-17 advantage midway through the fourth quarter. With 12 games in the books, Davidson has now rushed for 905 yards and 11 touchdowns. He has been incredibly consistent, managing at least 70 yards on the ground in eight contests.

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson rushed for 111 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries in Saturday's 60-3 blowout of Morgan State.

The Black Knights were absolutely ruthless on the ground in this one. Not only did Davidson rush for 111 yards and a pair of scores, Cole Macek notched 109 yards and two touchdowns on the ground while Darnell Woolfolk managed 104 yards and a score of his own. As a team, Army rushed for 504 yards and seven touchdowns. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Davidson has now rushed for 818 yards and nine touchdowns in 10 games played. He sat out last weekend's loss to Notre Dame due to an undisclosed injury, but looked no worse for the wear on Saturday.

Army expects senior WR Edgar Poe (hand) to return Saturday versus North Texas.

Knights head coach Jeff Monken announced the news, presumably thrilled, as his go-to receiver's absences in the past three games had rendered the triple-option offense even more one-dimensional than it usually is. Poe had only 16 catches last year, but he converted them into 441 yards (27.6 yards per catch) and six scores. If you creep up, he can make you pay deep. Deep into that darkness, long our hero Edgar stands peering out from the perimeter, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. The boundaries which divide wins from losses are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say but Mr. Poe where the one ends, and the other begins?

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson exited Saturday's game against Lafayette in the first quarter and never returned.

Davidson was felled on Army's first drive, having only rushed once for 11 yards. HC Jeff Monken was reportedly "uncertain on [the] severity" of Davidson's injury after the game. We'll update you on the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder's status when more is known.

Army junior QB Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown on six carries while completing 3-of-4 passes for 31 yards and an additional score in Saturday's 62-7 win over Lafayette.

Bradshaw and the Black Knights absolutely demolished Lafayette on the ground, racking up 537 yards rushing. For his part, the 5-foot-11, 196-pound junior busted out for a 60-yard touchdown run with a little less than five minutes gone in the fourth quarter. That bumped Army out to a 7-0 lead and it was off to the races at that point. Through six games, Bradshaw has accounted for six total touchdowns between his aerial work and his work on the ground.
Sat, Oct 15, 2016 03:42:00 PM

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in Saturday's 13-6 loss to Duke.

Davidson averaged a sweet 7.5 YPC in the defeat. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound sophomore has been consistent as can be this season, having rushed for at least 100 yards in four of five games. Even in the outlier against Buffalo, he still managed to finish with 80 yards on the ground.

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Saturday's 66-14 win over UTEP.

Davidson averaged a cool 6.2 YPC with a long run of 33 yards. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound former linebacker has been phenomenally competent this season. Through three games, he has rushed for 334 yards and six touchdowns. Davidson has managed at least 100 yards on the ground in every contest to date, scoring in each game to boot.

Army sophomore CB Brandon Jackson passed away on Sunday after being involved in a single-car accident.

Police believe that the crash occurred after Jackson's vehicle hit a guardrail and flipped. In a statement, HC Jeff Monken said, "Words cannot describe the grief that our team is feeling over the loss of our brother and friend, Brandon. He was a beloved teammate and our hearts are with his family at this time of tragedy." The 6-foot, 178-pounder was a nine-game starter as a freshman in 2015.
Mon, Sep 12, 2016 12:14:00 PM

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson rushed for 107 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries in Saturday's win over Rice.

Davidson led the Black Knights with his 107 yards on the ground, averaging 4.7 YPC with a long run of 22 yards. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder scored singular touchdowns in the first, second and third quarters. Through two games, the converted linebacker has rushed for 228 yards and five touchdowns -- he has surpassed 100 yards rushing in each of Army's first two games.

Army junior QB Ahmad Bradshaw is "likely" to be the starting quarterback this season.

That really de-escalated quickly. It was reported last week that Bradshaw had left both the football program, but just one day later the 5-foot-11, 196-pounder apparently changed his mind. And now he is set to start. In eight games (seven starts) last season, he rushed for 450 yards (3.4 YPC) and five touchdowns. He was surprisingly mistake-free in his limited time as a passer last season, throwing for 429 yards (47.9% completions) with a 5/2 TD/INT ratio.

Army starting junior QB Ahmad Bradshaw has left the football program and the Academy.

The timing might be odd, but actually it comes after Army's "Affirmation Ceremony." Beat writer Sal Interdonato explains "Juniors take the oath to complete their final two years at West Point and the ensuing commitment to serve five years of active duty following graduation." Bradshaw started seven games last season and was in charge of the quarterback position this offseason. Sophomore Chris Carter was his top competition, but Carter was sidelined for two weeks with a hamstring injury.
