The teams playing in the Armed Forces Bowl on Monday have 8-4 records and average about 415 total yards a game, though the Midshipmen gain most of their yards on the ground with their triple option while the Blue Raiders are basically 50-50. Both have extended winning streaks after midseason slumps.
Keenan Reynolds ran through steady snow and swirling wind into the NCAA record book, helping Navy beat Army 34-7 on Saturday for its 12th consecutive victory in the series.
Reynolds can also put his name in the NCAA record book — again. He has 26 rushing touchdowns, one short of the single-season mark for a quarterback, shared by former Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs and former Kansas State standout Collin Klein (2011).
Navy's sophomore quarterback Keenan Reynolds is prepared to take on the pressures of being a full-time starter this season. His coach has full belief in him and the Midshipmen to improve from last year's 8-5 record.
Navy wide receiver Brandon Turner pleaded in the second half to somehow get him the ball.
Always kidding, always joking, Navy wide receiver Brandon Turner put on his most serious face recently as he approached Danny O'Rourke, his old position coach.
Still digesting his team's 1-3 start, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo stepped onto a practice field just a short walk from the banks of the Severn River in early October.
Brye French and Bo Snelson represented Navy at Wednesday's Army-Navy media day at Lincoln Financial Field, one of the traditional duties of the Midshipmen's football captains.
Jonathan Gazaille was the last player to leave Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Saturday night.
It would've been easy for the Navy Midshipmen to get complacent Saturday. Easy for them to look past Texas State and dwell on their next game against Army. Easy for them to remember that their trip to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl has already been booked.
Brye French looked forward to this weekend for more than a year.
Keegan Wetzel slowly unspooled tape from around his left arm and hand Wednesday evening. The Navy linebacker would get to his other arm soon after.
With two minutes left to play, a one-point lead to protect and a Homecoming party just waiting to begin, the Navy defense huddled at the 20-yard-line.
Navy, reliant on the triple option and ball control as it is, frequently attempts to convert fourth downs.
Keenan Reynolds will remain Navy's starting quarterback after helping the Midshipmen collect two straight road victories.
"They lost a lot last year, but they lost a lot of close games," Niumatalolo said. "(Friedgen) has done a lot during his tenure there. Our focus is to be ready for a great Maryland football team."
"There is no question that this team is getting more preseason recognition than ever before," Niumatalolo said. "We have to keep the blinders on and not let it be a distraction. A lot of this stuff is new to Navy, and we're all human."
