Facts and figures: Duke

For the fourth straight time this season, Army had a different player lead the team in rushing. Quarterback Trent Steelman had a team-high 62 yards.  Pat Mealy, who didn’t play against Duke due to a knee injury, had 81 yards against Eastern Michigan, fullback Jared Hassin gained 83 against Hawaii and Brian Cobbs rushed for 75 against North Texas.

Steelman threw two touchdowns passes in a game for the first time in his career. It’s the first time an Army quarterback has thrown for two or more touchdowns in a game since Carson Williams on Nov. 17, 2007 against Tulsa.

Army dominated the clock, possessing the ball for 39 minutes and 57 seconds. The Black Knights ran 18 more plays than Duke.

Army converted 5 of its first eight third downs and finished the game 8-for-17. Duke converted just one of its eight third-down tries.

Three Army players (Brian Cobbs, Raymond Maples and Austin Barr) scored their first career touchdowns.

Three more Army rushing touchdowns give the Black Knights 14 in its first four games, one more than its total (13) in 2009 season.

Army posted its first road win over an ACC opponent since it defeated Georgia Tech 16-13 on Sept. 25, 1971.
