Texas A&M linebacker Matt Featherston caused Army quarterback Chip Bowden to fumble in the closing seconds of the first half, and Paul Freeney scooped up the ball and returned it 58 yards for a touchdown to give the Aggies a 14-7 halftime advantage. A&M has 131 total yards at the half, with just 27 coming on the ground, while Army has 124, with all but 4 coming on the ground. Penalties have been critical as the two teams have been flagged a combined nine times for 92 yards. The Aggies had three costly personal foul penalties to help the Black Knights score their lone touchdown, which ended Army's eight-quarter touchdown drought. A&M drew another personal foul after the score for roughing the kicker.
