Army nearly pulled off the upset of the year in college football on Saturday night. The Black Knights went into Norman, Okla. and came oh so close to beating No. 5 Oklahoma.
The Sooners ended up rallying late, winning the game in overtime.
Alas, it was one of the best games of the season so far (well, we think it was, the game was on PPV and nobody was able to actually watch it).
There was a cool ending to the game, too. Oklahoma’s fans gave Army’s players a standing ovation as they left the field on Saturday night.
Army’s equipment staff should be getting some praise today, too. Check out what they did to the visitors’ locker room:

If you’ve never seen a college football locker room after a game, that is usually not how it looks – not even close, really.
ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit is impressed:
“This is AWESOME!! This needs to become a trend for all teams and all coaches at EVERY level.”
