Navy Vs. San Jose State Final: Mids Fall Short To Spartans, 27-24

After taking the lead in the third quarter, the Navy Midshipmen couldn't hold on and have up the lead to the San Jose State Spartans in the fourth quarter. Navy's last attempt to tie the game fell incomplete on a Kriss Proctor fourth down pass attempt. After that, the Spartans were able to just kill the clock for the hard fought win.

With the loss, the Mids will not become bowl eligible in 2011 and will end their season next week in the annual Army-Navy game without the chance to get to .500 on the season. Navy's offense was able to run for over 250 yards on the ground, but couldn't find their typical big plays in the passing game in the triple option. The Mids defense also couldn't seem to slow down Spartans quarterback Matt Faulkner as he threw for 345 yards on the day.

Navy Vs. San Jose State: Mids Pull Ahead, 24-20

After trailing at half time to San Jose State, the Navy Midshipmen battled back in the third quarter. Early on, neither team could really get going offensively until Navy quarterback Kriss Proctor lead an 11-play 65-yard scoring drive. With a combination of big passes and long runs, Proctor moved Navy into scoring range for the field goal to cut the Spartans lead to 20-17.

On San Jose's ensuing drive, the Mids defense forced a quick turnover when Spartans quarterback Matt Faulkner was sacked and fumbled the ball, allowing Navy to take over in scoring range. A few plays later, thanks to a Aaron Santiago 21-yard run the Mids were able to score on a 2-yard touchdown run by Kriss Proctor to take the 24-20 lead.

Navy Vs. San Jose State Score Update: Mids Trail 10-0 After First Quarter

The Navy Midshipmen are coming off back to back wins after snapping a long losing streak and travel cross country to take on San Jose State. Navy got the football first, but didn't do much with their initial possession. The Mids went just five plays for a total of 8 yards and punted the football. 

The punt traveled just 25 yards however, giving San Jose State good field position, made even better by a 22-yard rush from Brandon Rutley on the second play. A few plays later the Spartans drive stalled, but they were in position to attempt a field goal, which Jens Alvernik drilled through the uprights to go up 3-0 on the 44-yard field goal.

The Mids next drive was a quick three-and-out, giving the football right back to San Jose State who took the football right down the football field. Quarterback Matt Faulkner connected on some long throws to get the Spartans down the field, leading the team to an eventual 3-yard rushing touchdown by Rutley to put the Spartans up 10-0 in the first quarter.

College Football Odds, Navy Vs. San Jose State: Midshipmen Narrow Favorites Over Slumping Spartans

The Navy Midshipmen (4-6) look for their first three-game winning streak of the season this Saturday, Nov. 19, when they visit the San Jose St. Spartans (3-7, 2-4 Western Athletic Conference). The Midshipmen must win this game and its season finale against the Army Black Knights in order to remain bowl eligible, so they have no margin for error. If their last two games are any indication, however, they're on the right track. The same cannot be said for the Spartans, who have lost each of their last three.

The oddsmakers believe Navy will stay alive for at least another week, listing it as 4.5-point favorites--five-point favorites in some places--against San Jose St., according to SB Nation partner OddsShark. It's the first meeting between the two teams in history.

The oddsmakers also believe the game will be high-scoring, setting the over-under at 60 points. Both teams indeed struggle defensively: the Spartans allow 31.6 points per game, while the Midshipmen yield 29.9.
