WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) Senior quarterback Kelvin Hopkins Jr. rushed for 208 yards and a touchdown, Connor Slomka scored thrice on short runs, and Army’s triple option overwhelmed VMI 47-6 on Saturday at Michie Stadium.
Kell Walker added a touchdown on a 59-yard scamper off a pretty pitch to the outside from Hopkins midway through the third quarter as Army (5-6) won its second straight after snapping a four-game losing streak last week against UMass. It was Army’s second win this season over a team from the Championship Subdivision.
VMI (4-7) was coming off a 60-21 loss to No. 9 Furman, failing to score in the second half. The Keydets were blanked again after intermission as Army outscored VMI 19-0 in the third to take control. The Black Knights finished with 594 yards rushing, 37 yards shy of matching the school record set against Colgate of the FCS in 1989.
