West Point, NY (AP) — Second-year quarterback Tire Tyler survived the disastrous two opening moments of his first start, winning a come-from-behind victory over Georgia Southern 28-27 on Saturday.

Georgia Southern fought to the end, and Justinto Murin quickly drove the Eagles to the Army’s 30-yard line with his last possession in just a few seconds. However, he was fired by Nolan Cockrill and Arick Smith to end the game.

Tyler ran through 121 yards, the fifth black knight (7-2) of the season, in a 100-yard rush game, leading eight ball carriers who collected 243 yards. Tyler failed three times in the first half and participated in the same number of plays twice, putting the Army in a 14-0 hole.

Sandon McCoy scored two touchdowns to the Army and cut Georgia Southern’s lead 14-7 with a fourth goal from the 1-yard line. Jacobi Buchanan led the Army in the middle of the final quarter, rushing from 2 yards and winning a huge 18-play, 71-yard drive that took nearly 11 minutes.

Shy Wurts scored from the yard after Tyler’s first fumble, and when the Eagles (6-3) climbed 14-0 in just 10 seconds, Derrick Canteen ran 22 yards on the second back. It was.

At its first meeting with the Army, the Eagles continued the tradition initiated by their first coach, Eric Russell, and watered the lawn of Michie Stadium from Beautiful Eagle Creek, which runs along a practice facility in southern Georgia.
