Army football team leaves visiting locker room spotless after loss to Oklahoma

Army gave No. 5 Oklahoma all it could handle on Saturday, nearly pulling off a huge upset.

The Black Knights totally controlled the time of possession and had a chance to take the lead late in the ballgame. An Army interception, however, plus a missed field goal by OU, forced overtime and the Sooners eventually prevailed, 28-21.

After coming so close to pulling off one of the biggest upsets of the season so far, the Black Knights had to be disappointed, but that did not stop them from showing tremendous respect for their host.

This is what the visiting locker room at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium looked like before Army left:

As you can see, it’s totally spotless. How cool is that?

The Oklahoma fans showed a ton of respect for Army, too. As the Black Knights left the field, they were given a standing ovation.

That’s great stuff all around.
