Darius Staten made his last home appearance a memorable one with a career-high 127 yards on seven carries with a touchdown to lead the Midshipmen to a 42-14 victory over South Alabama on Saturday night.
One week after missing an extra point in the second overtime that cost his team, Navy kicker Nick Sloan redeemed himself Saturday against Pittsburgh. Sloan booted a 30-yard field-goal as time expired that gave the Midshipmen a 24-21 victory over the Panthers.
Cody Peterson didn't settle in at a position in his first two years at Navy. And injury problems arose wherever he moved.
Brye French looked forward to this weekend for more than a year.
"I had a feeling they were going to run the ball with that guy because he runs pretty hard," Peterson said. "I kind of just shot the gap. I didn't really read it that much. I got lucky I guess."
"I'm extremely proud of Nick," Navy linebacker Cody Peterson said.
