DALLAS (AP) For Army coach Jeff Monken, there was never really a second thought about what to do on fourth down from the 3 on the opening possession of overtime. Not with the way the triple-option Black Knights dominate running the ball and struggle kicking it.

Jordan Asberry took a toss and scored Army's sixth rushing touchdown in a 38-31 win over North Texas on Tuesday in a rematch at the Heart of Dallas Bowl. ''One of our goals is not flinch and believe no matter what,'' said quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw, who ran for 129 yards and a score.

''A lot of people say it's a questionable call. ... We were determined to get it in.'' The Black Knights (8-5) finished with 480 yards rushing, including 119 yards and two TDs by Darnell Woolfolk. Asberry's score was the 46th rushing touchdown this season, breaking the school record held by the 1945 national championship team that had two Heisman Trophy winners in the backfield.

North Texas (5-8) had its chance in overtime. But after Alec Morris scrambled for 4 yards and Jeffery Wilson lost 3, consecutive incomplete passes followed. The former Alabama graduate transfer threw for 304 yards and three TDs, but his desperation fourth-down throw on the run ended the game. ''We may not have accomplished our mission of winning our bowl game, but these men ... set a solid foundation of brotherhood,'' first-year coach Seth Littrell said.

North Texas, which lost five of its last six games after winning 35-18 at Army on Oct. 22, was in the bowl based on its Academic Progress Rate. Army's 1945 team had 45 rushing touchdowns while going 9-0. Doc Blanchard scored 16 of them and won the Heisman that season.

Glenn Davis had 15 a year before winning his Heisman Trophy. The Black Knights have a three-game winning streak, including their first win over Navy since 2001. ''We're a work in a progress. I hope we always will be and be improving,'' Monken said. ''Proud of our guys and how we finished this season.''
