Army's triple option is in midseason form already.

The Black Knights, who will visit Ohio Stadium in two weeks, rushed for 513 yards without completing a single pass in a 64-6 win over Fordham in the opener for both schools Friday night.

Eight different players scored rushing touchdowns for Army, who had the nation's No. 2 rushing offense last season, with quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw leading the way with 177 yards  and two scores on just nine attempts.

With 15 players recording a rushing attempt, the Black Knights averaged 10.9 yards per carry on the evening and finished 0-2 passing. Army became the first team to rush for 500 yards without completing a pass since 1997, when Ohio ran for 612 yards in a 47-7 win over Eastern Michigan, according to ESPN.

The Black Knights face Ohio State on Sept. 16 in Columbus with the 4:30 p.m. kickoff airing on FOX.
