Dallas Colleges: Army
The Sooners (39-23) managed just five hits after getting two in their opener, but Bushyhead singled to start the 10th, took second on a sacrifice and scored easily when White lined a single to center.
Army (41-15) got a runner to second in the bottom of the inning on an error and sacrifice, but two groundouts ended it.
Steven Okert (9-7) got the victory with three one-hit innings in relief of Jonathan Gray, who allowed five hits and a run.
Gunnar Carroll (2-1) took the loss. He also worked three innings.
Army took a 1-0 lead in the fifth on Zach Price's single. The Sooners tied it in the sixth on Evan Mistich's grounder.
Standing room-only tickets are available for $10 each.
Kickoff is at 11 a.m. Thursday. The game will be televised on ESPN, broadcast on ESPN 103.3 FM and streamed live on ESPNDallas.com. You also can watch the game live on ESPN3.com.
"As I stated earlier, the demand is similar to what we saw earlier this season for the SMU-TCU game," SMU athletic director Steve Orsini said in a statement. "We are extremely proud of how the Mustang Nation responded and we believe Ford Stadium will offer another great college game day atmosphere on December 30th."
* Army is appearing in its 5th all-time bowl game (2-2 record), and looking for its first bowl win since the 1985 Peach Bowl. SMU will play in its 13th bowl game (5-6-1 record). The Mustangs drilled Nevada in last year’s Hawaii Bowl 45-10.
* SMU apparently doesn’t enjoy playing service academy teams. Since 1967, the Mustangs are 2-11 against the academies, with the wins coming in 1993 and 1998 against Navy. Over that stretch, SMU is 2-7 vs Navy, 0-3 vs Air Force and 0-1 vs Army.
* The fact that SMU enters this game with a winning record gives it a decided advantage over Army. The Black Knights have lost 22 straight games against teams that were above .500 at game time. The last such win came in 2005, a 38-10 win over Arkansas State (5-4).

The competing teams, one of which will be the Army Black Knights -- as long they become bowl eligible -- will still be housed in Fort Worth and all bowl activities during the week will take place in Fort Worth. The game is moving to SMU because of major renovations to TCU's Amon G. Carter Stadium that will begin at the end of the regular season in November.
The game will be broadcast at 11 a.m. on ESPN.
