It isn’t as good as beating Navy. However, Army is going to savor its victory over Missouri, from the vaunted SEC, in Wednesday’s Armed Forces Bowl.

The Black Knights of the Hudson got a field goal from Cole Tally on the last place of the game to earn a 24-22 victory as time expired.

Tally was 1-of-4 on attempts of 40 yards or longer before connecting on his game-winner.

He didn’t need a second chance but would have gotten one because the penalty flag that flew was because Missouri had two players wearing No. 6 on the field during the play.

The winning march covered 51 yards over 1:11 and took 8 plays.

It came after Missouri had taken a 22-21 lead on Brady Cook’s 6-yard TD pass to Keke Chism.

The Tigers went for a 2-point conversion but Cook missed a wide-open Dawson Downing with the pass.

Army won the Armed Forces Bowl despite having to use a trio of quarterbacks. The Cadets did have 95 yards passing, including a TD throw from Tyhier Tyler to Brandon Walters in the fourth quarter.

Army, which lost to Navy in its previous game, finished the season at 9-4.

Missouri, the first SEC team to play in a bowl game in 2021, fell to 6-7.
