Defense breakdown: Bucknell

Andre Carter’s play continues to impress Army defensive coordinator Nate Woody.

Whether it was an interception or a sack in first half of a 63-10 win over Bucknell, Carter continues to perform at a high level.

Carter joined Josh McNary as the only players in Army history to reach double-digit sack on Bucknell’s second drive. Carter’s 10.5 sacks are tied for fifth in the nation. Alabama’s Will Anderson leads the nation with 12.5 sacks but he’s played one more game than Carter.

“He’s done some good stuff,” Woody said during his weekly press conference. “Getting pressure on the quarterback is a big deal. It allows you to bring four (pass rushers), sometimes three. You don’t have to blitz or put that much stress on your secondary.”

Freshmen defensive linemen Kyle Lewis made his college debuts. Safety Deante Bernard, linebacker Cole Mabry and linebacker Jonzell Prudhomme saw their first defensive action of the season.

Turnovers created: 2 (Interception, Andre Carter; Malkelm Morrison forced fumble, Cam Jones fumble recovery)

Third-down defense: Army held Bucknell to 4-of-12 on third down

Bucknell 3-and-outs: 4

Bucknell starting field position: Bucknell 31.
