HOUSTON (AP) For a team that hadn't been keen on forcing turnovers this season - having just three through its first five games - Army found its rhythm all at once.
Facing Rice, which has been bitten by the turnover bug this season, Army forced turnovers on four straight possessions in the first half to build a big lead early in a 49-12 win on Saturday.
"That was huge getting those turnovers," Army coach Jeff Monken said. "They helped us. We ripped a couple out. Those paid off. That was the difference in the game. It was the spark from the defense that made the difference."
