Meanwhile, Navy fell 35-17 on the road last week to Memphis. It's been a tough year for the Midshipmen, who sit near the bottom of the AAC standings with a 1-3 mark in conference play. But their option offense can certainly keep games competitive and it's helped them cover three times this year despite having just one outright win.
Navy has piled up over 1,200 yards of rushing this season and six different players have at least 19 rushing attempts. Fullback Isaac Ruoss leads the way with 308 rushing yards and a couple scores.
