WKU wins in final minute at Army

Posted: Updated:

WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Antonio Andrews, the nation's leading rusher once recruited to play at West Point, ran for 117 yards and the game-winning touchdown with 32 seconds left as Western Kentucky came back to beat Army 21-17 Saturday in the teams' first meeting.
    
Brandon Doughty was 16 for 24 for 199 yards and two touchdowns for the Hilltoppers (6-4, 2-3 Sun Belt), who clinched bowl eligibility for the third straight season.
    
Held scoreless in the first half, Western Kentucky went up ahead on Doughty's second touchdown pass to Willie McNeal, which made it 14-10 early in the fourth.
    
Army (3-7) took a 17-14 lead on Terry Baggett's 20-yard rush with 7:03 to go, but couldn't stop Andrews on the next drive as he ran in unscathed for the go-ahead score.
    
The Hilltoppers played in New York for the first time in their 94-year history.
