PHILADELPHIA —- Navy is looking at its first seven-game winning streak against Army.

So far, the Midshipmen have moved it effectively, stalling inside the 10 on the last drive after the Cadets figured out they would be receiving a steady diet of Eric Kettani.


Slotback Shun White, by  the way, just moved into sixth on Navy’s career rushing list with 2,176 yards.

As for Navy’s defense, it’s now held opponents scoreless for the last 86:17, dating back to a field goal yielded early in the fourth quarter of the Notre Dame game.

Here’s the rundown of Army’s four first-quarter possessions (Plays-Yards-Result):

* 4-3-PUNT

* 6-34-DOWNS

* 4-5-PUNT

* 5-15-PUNT

Needless to say, that’s not effective. Not Notre Dame-vs.-Southern Cal ineffective, but still ineffective.

Navy’s up 10 and has the ball. Wouldn’t be surprised if we see a long scoring march to create even more separation on this drive.
