Army-Navy Game: Ricky Dobbs' Record Pass Puts Mids Up 10-0

Joshua Jackson gets another good kick return for the Black Knights, motoring for 30 yards to Army's 36. TRENT STEELMAN (you have to capitalize a name like TRENT STEELMAN) goes back to work behind center, but after two short rushes from him and another from Raymond Maples, the punting unit comes on and the Mids get it back.

We're about to witness another record being broken, this one much more impressive. On second down, Ricky Dobbs rears back and launches a 77-yard pass at John Howell, who skates in for a touchdown. It's the longest aerial play in the history of the Army-Navy rivalry. With 8:59 remaining in the first quarter, the Midshipmen lead the Black Knights, 10-0.

Another three-and-out for Army, who still hasn't attempted a pass but is getting nowhere against the run, but two consecutive Dobbs incompletions give the ball back in just over two minutes of game time.

With 4:37 remaining in the first quarter, Navy leads Army, 10-0.
