A convincing win at Kent State has Army fans buzzing about a bowl game and a chance to end the season with a winning record.
Army, which posted nearly 50 points in dominating the nation’s [former] No. 1 rushing defense, now faces Notre Dame at Yankee Stadium this Saturday in the Bronx in a nationally-televised game on NBC. The Irish come to New York following a big win over No. 15 Utah this past weekend.
I’ve created some promotional designs for the upcoming game featuring some of the top players from both teams. Army may be avoiding some of the Irish’s top talent (QB Dayne Crist is done for the year, so is leading rusher Armando Allen) but after upsetting the Utes, combined with the spotlight of the Bronx, I’m expecting an epic battle. Army and Notre Dame last met at Yankee Stadium in 1969.
Either way, this has been a tremendous year for West Point. The seniors know this is a chance to build some big confidence and momentum before their final chance to beat Navy.
Here’s some of the illustrations I whipped up (Notre Dame photos are from the AP):
