Army-Navy Game: Black Knights Score On Opening Second-Half Drive

Before we begin the second half, we've got an injury update on Black Knights quarterback TRENT STEELMAN, who was seen limping about after a hard hit late in the first half. Rich Ellerson tells CBS it's a sprained foot, and that Steelman will return, though they'll obviously be keeping a close watch on his condition.

Speaking of the Black Knights, they get the ball back to begin the second half, and in true option fashion, chew six and a half minutes of clock with a rush-happy drive (though Steelman does complete an 11-yard pass to fullback Jared Hassin). A sack on a second down deep in Navy territory slows the roll, but points will still be had: Alex Carlton boots a 42-yard try through the uprights (it hooks in at the last second, to great cheering among the Cadets), and it's a two-possession ballgame in Philadelphia.

With 8:25 remaining in the third quarter, the Midshipmen lead the Black Knights, 24-10.
