At West Point, Utah squared off against Army in a highly anticipated game between two evenly matched opponents. The Black Knights' strategy was to bully the Utes with their forwards, and to utilize Will Holder's excellent kicking. The Utes relied on Thretton Palamo's powerful running, and the speed of the intimidating backline. There were plenty of lead changes. However, when it counted, Utah mounted a fantastic comeback to steal the game from the Black Knights.
