The finest rivalry in sports is tight at the break, with Army surging to tie it up as the first half clock wound down. Can the Black Knights break the streak?
The Navy Midshipmen and Army Black Knights are knotted up at 10-10 heading into halftime, with a Raymond Maples fumble among the key plays so far. The drop allowed Navy a short field for a Noah Copeland touchdown run, but the Black Knights countered with a Trent Steelman touchdown run (which tied him for the school rushing record, with 17). Keep up with Army-Navy score updates here.
Just before the half, Steelman put together both a clutch run and throw to set up a 42-yard field goal try, which banked in to tie it up.
Army does lead the yardage game, 225 to 158, with its No. 1 rushing offense piling up 208 on the ground, meaning good things could be in store if they can hang onto the ball. One Army fan was pretty excited about all this:
