After trailing at halftime 17-7 to ECU, but Navy made sure to cut into that lead as quick as possible. Ben Ryan returned the kickoff to open the second half 90 yards for a touchdown, putting Navy right back into the game 17-14.
In the first half, ECU quarterback Dominque Davis set two records for 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.
Davis however missed on his very first pass of the second half. ECU was still able to march right down the field on their first drive and answer Navy's score. ECU went 12 plays for 69 yards to cap the scoring drive off with Reggie Bullock rushing the ball in from 1 yard out to put ECU up 24-14.
Navy's next drive with back up quarterback Trey Miller went for negative yards on a three and out. Navy forced ECU on their first three and out of the game on their next drive however, to get the ball back. Navy went on a patented 13-play drive that ate up five minutes off the clock. Alexander Teich punched the ball in from the 1-yard line to put the game back within reach, 24-21.
