Army Beats Navy for Third Straight Season

Navy pulled within 10-7 halfway through the fourth quarter but a key defensive stand by Army and a fumble recovery on fourth down with three minutes left pretty much sealed the win. Abey had to enter the game for the play because QB Garret Lewis went down after taking a hard hit on a trick play and was forced by rule to leave the game.

Navy: Had 0 yards passing and 64 yards rushing through three quarters.

Last season's game was an instant classic and was decided by a field goal: Bennett Moehring narrowly missed a 48-yarder in the snow on the final play and Army held off Navy 14-13. Hopkins appeared to get a first down on a 4th down run but the spot was reviewed. But Army and Navy passed on the rush and tried to throw, with mixed results.

Navy didn't score after getting the ball back thanks to a fumble inside the red zone.

Before the game, parachute jumpers floated onto the field - the Army ones displaying the American and service flags and the Navy ones waving banners that said "Forged by the Sea" and "Fear the Goat" - a reference to the Navy's mascot. It's the first time in history Army has won at least 10 games in back-to-back seasons.

While it took officials forever to figure out what to do, they eventually chose to re-spot the ball and brought the chains out on the field to determine that the Black Knights were about a foot short of a first down, giving Navy the ball with 14:30 remaining in the quarter.

There were reminders all around the Linc, home of the Super Bowl champion Eagles, that this was no ordinary game. With a win Saturday, the Black Knights can win the coveted Commander-in-Chief's Trophy.
