DALLAS -- When the final heave from North Texas quarterback Alec Morris fell to the ground and the Mean Green was out of plays and out of time and unable to score again, what could be remembered as a breakthrough season for Army had been capped the right way.
The Black Knights secured a 38-31 overtime victory Tuesday in the seventh annual Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl on the strength of a ground game that churned out 480 yards and no turnovers at the Cotton Bowl.
DALLAS – With only next year's game left on a four-year agreement as title sponsor, chicken tender chain Zaxby's couldn't help but like what it saw Tuesday in the seventh Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl.
North Texas and Army played to overtime on a clear day at the historic Cotton Bowl Stadium. The venue's natural turf looked its TV-best in the game's short history. North Texas and Army fans (an announced 39,117) also filled much of the 92,100-seat stadium's huge lower bowl to give the event some added electricity.
