Wolford hooked up with Cam Serigne on a six-yard scoring strike with 13:39 to play in the first half to put the Deacons back on top, but the Knights knotted the score again four minutes later when Santiago capped off an eight-play, 74- yard drive with a one-yard touchdown run.

Army took its first lead of the game with 2:23 to play before halftime on a trick play. Joe Walker took an end-around handoff before tossing a four-yard score to Xavier Moss.
