Army-Navy Game: Can the Army Cadets Make A Comeback in Second Half?
Navy Football: Can the Army Cadets Make A Comeback in Second Half?
The Navy Midshipmen have dominated this classic rivalry for the past eight years, but the Army Cadets (bowl-eligible for the first time since 1996) were looking to end that winning streak today.
And in the first half of this game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, it looked like the Cadets could keep up with the Midshipmen.
Late in the second quarter, Army had the ball on the Navy 3-yard line, and the Cadets were all set to score and close the gap on Navy to only three points.
But a fumble by Army quarterback Trent Steelman not only ended an impressive touchdown drive, but it also set up Navy's Wyatt Middleton for a 98-yard fumble return (the longest in Navy history).
So instead of a score of 17-14, the Cadets were facing a 24-7 deficit as they headed into the half.
A third quarter field goal has brought the score to 24-10, but with nine minutes left to play in this game, it looks like the Midshipmen will claim a ninth straight win over the Cadets.
