Troy Vs. Navy Final: Navy Dominates Troy, Snaps Losing Streak

The Navy Midshipmen were able to snap their six game losing streak with a dominant win over the Troy Trojans, winning 42-14 today. The Trojans scored late to make the score not look as bad, but the Mids led at halftime 35-0. Navy took their foot off the pedal in the second half, basically running clock to end the game and snap their six game losing streak, keeping bowl hopes alive.

Quarterback Kriss Proctor got the start, coming off an injury, completing just 4 of his 6 pass attempts but for 127 yards and a touchdown. Proctor also picked up 37 yards on the ground with two rushing touchdowns. Slotback Gee Gee Greene finished the day with 5 carries for 52 yards with a touchdown and also caught one pass for 48 yards and a touchdown. Overall, Navy ran the football for 390 yards.

Navy held Troy's offense to 330 yards and forced two turnovers, which allowed Navy to jump out to a quick 14-0 lead early on. The Mids can still make a bowl game, despite already having six losses. All they'll need to do is win out for the season.

Troy Vs. Navy: Mids Continue To Roll, 42-7

Troy opened the half down 35-0 getting the football first. On a 15-play drive that went just 65 yards, the Trojans cut into the massive Navy lead when D.J. Taylor ran the ball in from 1-yard out. Troy just slowly plodded down the field picking up chunks of yardage, scoring on a long drawn out drive.

Once Navy got the football back, they too went on a long 10 play drive going 63 yards for a Mike Stukel rushing touchdown. While pushing the score to 42-7, Navy also ate time off of the clock. Both teams drives combined for nearly 10 minutes off the game clock in the third quarter.

Troy got the football back feeling confident on offense picking up third down after third down, including a 3rd-and-12. Troy once again was face with a 3rd-and-long, but the pass fell incomplete. The Trojans attempted to go for it on fourth down, but gained only a yard and turned the ball over on downs.

Navy holds the lead, 42-7 as the teams enter the fourth quarter.

Troy Vs. Navy: Midshipmen Pour It On, Lead 35-0 At Halftime

Navy forced a fumble right before the second quarter and promptly capitalized on the turnover, scoring another touchdown. On the second play of the second quarter quarterback Kriss Proctor connected with slotback Gee Gee Greene for a 48-yard touchdown pass to go up 14-0, scoring 14 points off of Troy turnovers.

Navy forced Troy to a 3-and-out on their next drive, getting the football right back and beginning another clock eating drive. Navy went 87 yards on 9-plays to push their lead to 21-0, thanks to a 5-yard touchdown run by Alexander Teich.  Aaron Santiago had a 20-yard run that put the Mids in the redzone on the drive.

Once again, Troy couldn't move the football and have it right back to the Mids. Once again, the Mids went right down the football field, assisted by a 15-yard personal foul penalty on the first play of the drive. Gee Gee Greene scored on a 10-yard touchdown run to put Navy up now 28-0, scoring four touchdowns on four straight drives. Troy did nothing answer, once again promptly going 3-and-out.

Navy marched right down the field, picking up small chunks of yardage until Aaron Santiago struck again, exploding for 30-yards on a run down to the 8-yard line. Kriss Proctor ran the ball in from 5 yards out for the touchdown as Navy continued to pour it on, taking a 35-0 lead into half time.

Troy Vs. Navy: Mids Take Early 7-0 Off Troy Turnovers

The Navy Midshipmen got the football first and began one of their typical clock killing drives with the triple option attack.  Quarterback Kriss Proctor softened up Troy early hitting a 12-yard pass on the first play of the game, but Navy began to pound the football after that. The drive stalled at the Troy 32-yard line as Navy went for it on 4th-and-6, but ran the football for no gain, turning it over on downs.

Luckily for the Mids, Troy got only seven plays before giving the ball right back to Navy when quarterback Corey Robinson fumbled the ball away. On Navy's possession they were able to convert 3rd-and-12 when Kriss Proctor hit Brandon Turner for 25 yards down the field and then hit John Howell on a long 45-yard gain in the air. This put Navy right in scoring range as Kriss Proctor ran the ball in from 1-yard out for the score, putting Navy up 7-0.

The two teams then traded punts and Troy turned the ball over again, when running back Shawn Southward fumbled the ball letting Navy get the football right back on the 36-yard line as the first quarter ended.

Kriss Proctor Injury Update: Navy Quarterback Likely To Start Vs. Troy

It looks like Navy football starting quarterback Kriss Proctor will be back in the lineup for the Midshipmen when they take on Troy on Senior Day in Annapolis at 3:30 p.m. Proctor, who missed Navy's last game against Notre Dame with an elbow injury, will start barring a setback in pregame warmups, reports Navy's radio play-by-play announcer Pete Medhurst.

Proctor suffered the injury in a loss to East Carolina two weeks ago. In his absence, Trey Miller started at quarterback and had his issues in a 56-14 loss to Notre Dame last week. Miller did lead a comeback effort against East Carolina that fell short.

Proctor has thrown for 557 yards and rushed for 591 yards for the Midshipmen this season, his first as a full-time starter after replacing the graduated Ricky Dobbs.

Navy Vs. Troy Game Time, TV Schedule, Spread And More

The Navy Midshipmen are hosting the Troy Trojans on Saturday, which also hopes to be Senior Day. Seniors Kriss Proctor, Alexander Teich and Delvin Diggs are the seniors who will be leading Navy in this one. They're looking to snap the brutal six-game losing streak that has been dogging the Midshipmen as they say goodbye to the home crowd.

The Trojans are also in the midst of a three-game losing streak, and they'll be coming to town as the underdogs in this matchup. Their 2-5 record is every bit as unimpressive as the 2-6 record boasted by the Midshipmen. Navy will be looking to take advantage of their status as favorites and use this game to right the ship. It won't be an easy task the way they've been playing for their past six games. In four of the last five contests, Navy has allowed opponents to score 35 points or more.

Here's all your viewing info for Saturday's game:

Game date, time: 3:30 pm ET, Saturday, November 5

Location: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Annapolis, MD

TV channel: CBS Sports Network

Spread: Navy is currently favored by 6.5 points

Series history: This will be the first game ever between these two teams

Troy Vs. Navy 2011 Odds: Midshipmen Favored Despite Six-Game Skid

The Navy Midshipmen (2-6) haven't won a game since Sept. 10, so perhaps it's a relief to their fans that the oddsmakers predict they'll end their six-game losing streak this Saturday, Nov. 5, when they host the Troy Trojans (2-5). According to SB Nation partner OddsShark, the line had Navy as 4.5-point favorites when betting opened. The spread has widened to 6.5 points at all outlets, so clearly the Midshipmen have a great chance of topping Troy.

Perhaps one reason for their optimism is the strength of Navy's triple-option offense. The Midshipmen average 309 yards rushing per game, while the Trojans yield 182.3 yards on the ground per contest. If Troy can't contain quarterback Kriss Proctor (4.5 yards per carry, eight touchdowns) or lead running back Alexander Teich (4.7 yards per carry, two touchdowns), then it'll be in a world of hurt.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 Eastern on Nov. 5.
