Navy vs. Troy 2012: Midshipmen trail 28-21 at halftime

Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE

After a scoreless first quarter for Navy, the Midshipmen are within a touchdown at the half against Troy

Navy has proven this season that opponents can't keep its rushing attack in check forever. After falling to a 21-0 deficit against Troy, quarterback Keenan Reynolds broke through and got his Midshipmen back into the game. Three second-quarter rushing touchdowns by Reynolds have his team down just a touchdown going into halftime.

The Troy quarterback tandem of Corey Robinson and Deon Anthony has been impressively efficient, combining to go 20 of 23 for 255 yards and two touchdowns. Anthony has also rushed for 51 yards and a score and Shawn Southward added a 6-yard scamper to round out the first half scoring for Troy.

Reynolds has a combined 208 yards that includes a 70-yard rush. Navy running back Gee Gee Greene has 70 yards rushing through the end of the second quarter.

Navy is looking for its seventh win of the season, while Troy looks to get back to .500 overall.
