Army Marches To Its First 6-0 Start Since 1950

By Associated Press

Not since the days of coach Red Blaik has Army gotten off to such a rousing start.

Joe Hewitt and Ronnie McAda ran for second-quarter touchdowns and Bobby Williams added two fourth-period scores Saturday as the unbeaten Cadets (6-0) defeated Tulane 34-10 for their best start since 1950.

Army opened 8-0 under Blaik in 1950 before losing to Navy.

The Cadets still have tough games against Air Force, Syracuse and Navy.

Army held the Green Wave (2-4) to 11 yards and no first downs in the second and third quarters - minus-5 in the second.

Army dominated from the outset, holding the Green Wave (2-4) to 11 yards and no first downs in the second and third quarters - minus-5 in the second in building a 20-3 halftime lead.

The Cadets ran for 357 yards and totaled 460.
