Navy Vs. Notre Dame Final Score: Midshipmen's Skid Hits Six With 56-14 Loss

The Navy Midshipman continued their losing streak, hitting six losses in a row after being demolished by Notre Dame 56-14. Navy was without their starting quarterback Kriss Proctor, but it likely wouldn't have mattered much as the Navy defense was overwhelmed by the Notre Dame offense. The Irish jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead and after Navy answered with a touchdown, Notre Dame scored 35 straight points to put the game away.

Tommy Rees had 230 passing yards on 21 attempts with a touchdown and interception as wide receiver Michael Floyd had 6 receptions for 121 yards and a touchdown. Navy couldn't stop the Irish on the ground, as Notre Dame ran the ball for 189 yards averaging over 5 yards a carry.

Offensively without Kriss Proctor, the Mids had no chance passing the ball, throwing for just 33 yards in the air on 13 attempts. Navy's triple option was also slowed to a crawl. While the Mids did rush for 196 yards, it was for a measly 3.9 yards per carry. In their six straight losses, the Mids defense has given up 20+ points in every game and 35 or more in four of the last five.

The Midshipmen fall to just 2-6 on the season.

Navy Vs. Notre Dame Score Update: Fighting Irish All Over Midshipmen, Lead 35-7 At Halftime

I think we can safely say Navy's losing streak will be continuing. The Midshipmen are in South Bend to take on Notre Dame, and so far, it hasn't been pretty. After taking a 14-0 first-quarter lead, the Fighting Irish have tacked on another 21 points and lead 35-7 at halftime.

Early in the second quarter, it looked like Navy would get some momentum when Gee Gee Greene caught a nine-yard pass from Trey Miller to cut Notre Dame's lead to 14-7. It all unraveled from there. On Notre Dame's next possession, nobody bothered to cover Michael Floyd, who slipped down the middle for a 56-yard touchdown pass. Navy then fumbled the kickoff, which led to a two-yard run for Jonas Gray, his second of the game. Cierre Wood added a one-yard touchdown and Notre Dame took their lead.

Navy Vs. Notre Dame Score Update: Cierre Wood Touchdown Gives Notre Dame 14-0 Lead

We're through one quarter of play in South Bend, and it looks like Navy football's woes are on their way to continuing. Cierre Wood scored a one-yard touchdown run in the final minute of the first quarter, and the Fighting Irish lead Navy, 14-0.

The Midshipmen started the game with the ball and made a nice drive, but it resulted in no points when Jon Teague missed a 47-yard field goal. Notre Dame got the ball back and promptly marched 55 yards for a touchdown, with Jonas Gray finishing off the drive from four yards out. The Midshipmen went three and out on their next possession, and Notre Dame scored on the ensuing drive with Wood's touchdown.

Quarterback Trey Miller has struggled filling in for Kriss Proctor for Navy, rushing for only three yards and throwing for only 12.

Navy Vs. Notre Dame: Trey Miller Starting At Quarterback Due To Kriss Proctor Injury

It's official now. Navy starting quarterback Kriss Proctor will not play for the Midshipmen against Notre Dame on Sunday due to an elbow injury. Navy athletic director Scott Strasemeier confirmed that backup Trey Miller will make his first start as Navy looks to snap its five-game losing streak in South Bend.

Proctor suffered the injury in Navy's 38-35 home loss to East Carolina on Sunday. He has struggled with elbow issues throughout his career, so this is just the latest setback. Miller came in and nearly led a comeback, throwing two touchdown passes and also rushing for 44 yards. Notre Dame, though, is definitely a bigger challenge for Miller than East Carolina.

The game will be broadcasted on NBC starting at 3:30 p.m. Notre Dame is looking to bounce back from a blowout loss to USC last week.

College Football Odds, Navy Vs. Notre Dame: Fighting Irish Heavy Favorites Against Midshipmen

Navy's disappointing 2011 season continues Saturday in South Bend against a Notre Dame team coming off an embarrassing home loss to Southern Cal in which the Irish were accused of quitting in the final quarter. The Midshipmen, however, travel to Indiana with a 2-5 record and with an injured Kriss Proctor likely out at quarterback. Trey Miller will likely get the start for Navy.

Notre Dame is favored at home by nearly three touchdowns, giving 20.5 points to the Midshipmen. After winning their first two games of the season, Navy's season has spiraled out of control as they enter Saturday on a five game losing streak. Getting 20.5 points emphasizes just how bad things have gone this season, as this was a Navy team that blasted the Irish in the Meadowlands last year. Kick off is set for 3:30 at Notre Dame Stadium and the game will be televised on NBC.

Kriss Proctor Injury Update: Navy QB Has Elbow Injury, 'Long Shot' To Play Vs. Nore Dame

It looks like Navy will have to play a key game against Notre Dame without starting quarterback Kriss Proctor. The Midshipmen's signal caller suffered an elbow injury in Navy's loss to East Carolina on Saturday and was in a sling at practice on Monday, reports Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times. Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said he doesn't expect Proctor to play.

"It’s probably a long shot that he’ll play this week," Niumatalolo said of Proctor.

In Proctor's absence, Trey Miller will start for Navy, who is looking to snap a five-game losing streak. Miller relieved Proctor on Sunday and helped Navy make a comeback attempt before eventually falling short.

As Stevens reports, this isn't Proctor's first experience with a dislocated elbow. He suffered the same injury in high school and has also dealt with it twice already in college.
