After leading much of the game, the Navy Midshipmen couldn't hold off the Rutgers offense, allowing 14 unanswered points that allowed Rutgers to take the lead the would ultimately hold on to. Kriss Proctor ended the game on a sack and also threw two interceptions, but ultimately Navy's inability to score touchdowns lost the game. Rutgers held the Midshipmen to only 169 yards on the ground.
Navy on the other hand couldn't hold back Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova, who completed 23 of 31 passes for 271 yards and two touchdowns, both of which were in the second half, including the go ahead score. Rutgers running back Jawan Jamison also had a nice say, rushing for over 100 yards and keeping the Navy defense off balance. Rutgers improves to 5-1 on the season while Navy falls to 2-4.
