WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) The first half was nearly perfect for Army. The triple option was churning out yards on the ground. The gambles on fourth down were working and the road crowd fell quiet.
Then the running holes closed up. Add in a loss of discipline that led to costly penalties and turnovers and it ended in a disappointing 24-21 loss to Wake Forest on Saturday that left first-year coach Jeff Monken fuming.
"What do you build on?" Monken said. "We didn't do anything really that well."
