PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Army coach Jeff Monken hopped on top of a wall and pumped his fist toward stoked cadets set to belt out the alma mater. Monken brought the party to locker room and waved an "Army Football" flag as the Black Knights bounced around him.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Kelvin Hopkins Jr. was in no mood to talk after the best game of his career. Army's quarterback overheated late in the afternoon and was inside the Black Knights locker room getting treatment.

Hopkins ran for 99 yards and a season-high three touchdowns and threw for a fourth, and Army beat San Jose State 52-3 on Saturday.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — After a fairly rigorous first month of the season that included an overtime loss at then-No. 5 Oklahoma, Army coach Jeff Monken felt the bye week came at the right time for the Black Knights.
Coming in the midst of a three-game road trip was even better.
WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) — Army quarterback Kelvin Hopkins Jr. has a different mindset, one that bodes well for the Black Knights.

AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) — Army didn't allow the disappointment from its overtime loss to No. 5 Oklahoma linger into the next week.

The Black Knights mixed in a few big scoring plays with its ground-control offense to defeat previously unbeaten Buffalo 42-13 on Saturday and get back on track toward bowl eligibility.
WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) — Every possession is precious for Army.
Every play the Black Knights run is a well-choreographed, hidden-ball trick, designed to flummox and punish opponents who are almost always bigger, faster and stronger. But it's not just defending Army's triple-option that makes the Cadets so hard to handle.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma's College Football Playoff hopes were dangerously close to becoming bleak less than a month into the season.
Kyler Murray threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to CeeDee Lamb in overtime, and Parnell Motley intercepted Kelvin Hopkins' fourth-down pass to help the fifth-ranked Sooners escape with a 28-21 victory over Army on Saturday night.
Army (2-1) at No. 5 Oklahoma (3-0), 7 p.m. ET (Fox PPV)
Line: Oklahoma by 31½.
Series record: Oklahoma leads 2-1.
WHAT'S AT STAKE?
Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray can push himself deeper into the Heisman Trophy picture with a strong performance and help the Sooners maintain momentum. Army seeks its biggest win during coach Jeff Monken's five-year tenure.
WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) — After guiding the Black Knights to victory over Liberty in their home opener last week, Army coach Jeff Monken didn't savor the moment very long. He quickly turned his focus to the next opponent, unbeaten Hawaii.
"They are really, really good," Monken said. "They're playing real confident right now."
