  • Navy Pulls Off A Win on the Road

    The Navy Midshipmen pulled off a come-from-behind victory on the road at Tulsa on Friday night, snagging the 20-17 win. Navy trailed 10-3 after Tulsa’s Anthony Watkins returned the second half opening kickoff 97-yards to the house, but the Mids rattled off the next 17 points to take a lead they’d hold on to for good.

    Starting Navy quarterback Tai Lavatai rushed for 64-yards — including what would be the game-winning touchdown — and finished 0-for-3 passing in the game. As a team, Navy gained 302 yards on 60 attempts on the ground. Lavatai’s 1-yard touchdown run that put Navy up 17-10 in the fourth quarter capped off a 15-play, 8+ minute drive.

    As a triple option team, Navy isn’t particularly known as a passing team. Zero completed passes, however? They haven’t done that in a win since 2017 against SMU when Malcolm Perry’s lone pass attempt was intercepted. The Mids also won that game, rushing the ball 72 times for 559 yards in a 43-40 victory. Navy did lose to UCF in 2018 without completing a pass.
