UNIVERSITY PARK, Texas -- The Armed Forces Bowl just got a lot more interesting. SMU has had two drives in the second half and has scored on both of them thanks to double-digit plays and important third-down conversions. It's now 16-14 Army with the fourth quarter not half over.

Quarterback Kyle Padron hit receiver Darius Johnson in the corner of the end zone from 26 yards out to cut the deficit to two points. The Mustangs have run 23 plays for 166 yards and chewed up nearly 11:30 of the clock on two second-half drives.

Johnson made a great play on the ball, going up and concentrating to make the catch despite good coverage.

SMU needs another stop to have an opportunity to take the lead.
