  • Navy Scores 27 Unanswered Points to Beat Tulane



    Tulane ran up a 24-0 halftime lead, only to surrender 27 unanswered points to Navy, the final three points coming on a field goal in the dying seconds of the contest.

    At halftime, the Midshipmen had managed just 59 yards, were 0-of-6 on third downs and entered the locker room down 24-0. Instead of falling apart like they did in the second half of the 55-3 loss to BYU in Week 1, they rode the wave all the way to the win.

    It was a much-needed win for a Navy team that laid an egg in the opener vs. BYU. Coach Ken Niumatalolo took the blame for the loss to the Cougars after he didn't have contact practices during fall camp. It's clear that the off week and dose of reality worked wonders for the Midshipmen.
