Final/OT: Army 38, North Texas 31.
The Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl bred familiarity, and also plenty of excitement. In their second meeting of 2016, Army and North Texas needed extra time to determine the bowl winner. Army led throughout, but the Mean Green nailed a 37-yard field goal with 28 seconds left to send the game to overtime at 31.
Jordan Asberry's fourth-down touchdown run in overtime gave Army the lead, and Alec Morris' fourth-down pass into the red zone was broken up, sealing Army's 38-31 win. The Black Knights improved to 8-5, their most wins in a season since 1996, while North Texas finished at 5-8.
Army dominated on the ground, piling up 480 yards rushing with an eye-popping 74 attempts (quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw attempted just three passes). But Bradshaw and Darnell Woolfolk combined for 241 rushing yards as the Knights ground out a huge win for their program.
