Postgame reaction (North Texas): Ahmad Bradshaw, Darnell Woolfolk

Army were defeated for the first time in 55 days as the Black Knights’ six-game winning streak ended with a 52-49 loss at North Texas.

Ahmad Bradshaw and Darnell Woolfolk combined for 364 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

Bradshaw set an academy rushing record as he gained 244 yards for a single-season mark of 1,472 but the milestone wasn’t on the senior quarterback’s mind in a postgame interview.

Here’s are comments of Bradshaw and Woolfolk:

Ahmad Bradshaw
On thoughts following back-and-forth game which featured five ties
“We scored some points. We played hard overall. Obviously, none of that matters if you don’t win. For me, I’m just going to go back and look at the film and see the mistakes that I made and see how I can help this football team.”

On his game and setting academy single-season rushing record
“None of that stuff (the statistics) matters to me unless we get a win. I don’t care if I throw a million picks and we get a win. If I score a million touchdowns and we lose, I’m not happy at all.”

On the way Army’s offense came out after halftime
“Guys were ready to play. The offensive line pulled us all aside and said, ‘let’s get this,’ and guys were all amped up to do better than we did in the first half. The attitude helped us a lot in the second half.”

On if he thought the game was destined for overtime after Andy Davidson’s touchdown with 1:23 left
“Absolutely. We were hoping we would get them in overtime and we would get a stop on defense and get them into overtime and see who could stop who first, I guess.”

Darnell Woolfolk
On his thoughts after back-and-forth game
“It’s tough loss. It’s been a while since we lost a game. We are obviously expecting to win. North Texas had a great effort. They are a good team and they were the better team today. We just have to regroup and come back better against Navy.”

On the offense coming back from 14 points down and tying the game four times in the second half
“Everybody on the offense has the mindset that we are going to get it done. We are not going to flinch. We believe in the process and what our offensive coaching staff is doing and what coach (Jeff) Monken is doing. We have a lot of faith in our coaching staff and our abilities.”

On if he thought the game was destined for overtime
“Honestly, yeah. Our offense was driving all game. We shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times but we thought if we go into overtime, our offense will continue to execute.”
