Navy Football Causes East Carolina's Dominique Davis To Set A Record

Navy's season has gotten away pretty quickly, and this may be the icing on the cake for their downfall. (We'll explain why we use the word "may" later). The Midshipmen are playing against East Carolina, and they cannot do anything to prevent ECU quarterback Dominique Davis to throw an incompletion. Davis completed the first 26 passes he threw in the game, setting a single-game record. Via the AP:

East Carolina quarterback Dominique Davis has set two NCAA records for successive pass completions.

Davis completed his first 26 passes against Navy on Saturday, breaking the single-game record of 23 set by Tee Martin of Tennessee in 1998 and tied by Aaron Rodgers of California in 2004.

That's also 36 pass completions in a row for Davis dating back to ECU's last game, which is also a record.

Somehow, though, Navy is only down by three points after running the second-half kickoff back for a touchdown. (See why we used the word "may?"). Could the Midshipmen really win despite allowing this record to happen?
