Bo's Blog: Army West Point, UH Have Several Common Ties

By Bo Carter

Army West Point and Houston…Houston and Army West Point…

There are so many ties between the two Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl opponents, and one of the most obvious is UH coaching legend Bill Yeoman.

Yeoman, a native of Elnora, Ind., starred at center at West Point from 1946-48 and was senior captain for the Black Knights in 1948. He played on teams that won or tied 24 of 28 games in the days when the service academies did not participate in bowls for academic reasons.
