Army Wins In Ugly Fashion. And We Mean That Literally

Officially, Halloween doesn't come until tomorrow. But Army apparently decided to get an early start today and dress up as the San Diego Padres.

That's a uniform of all camouflage, with black numbers for no apparent reason other than preserving the accuracy of their "Black Knights" team name. Army's uniforms are designed by Nike, also famous for such hits as the shoulder pad patch at Virginia Tech and Florida, and every uniform Oregon has ever worn.

But it might be time to get used to the Knights' new threads. Army won the game, 29-7, and now needs to win just one of its last four games to go to its first bowl game since 1996. And if they do that, an all-camouflage field a la Boise State might be in store.
