The Ivy League Yale Bulldogs won a close one at home in New Haven, Connecticut, in a thriller over Army 49-43 in overtime Saturday.  I looked at this game with a lot of trepidation earlier in the season from the Army point of view because it was on the road where armies and angels should fear to tread.  Army is the only FBS team to take up this unique challenge so far this season.  I love games like this.  This contest in the historic Yale Bowl had a tremendous old school appeal for traditionalists.  This is a game that would have been fantastic 60 or a hundred years ago.  And it likely would have had national implications.
