| October 24, 2015 | 0 Comments

Navy (4-1, 2-0 in the American) will look to bounce back from its first loss of the year on Saturday when the Mids play host to Tulane (2-4, 1-2 in the American) on Homecoming at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

Navy’s 4-1 record is the Mids’ best start under head coach Ken Niumatalolo and Navy’s best start since 2006 when the Mids started 5-1 en route to a 9-4 season.

Navy-Colgate-Sep-5-2015-24Senior quarterback Keenan Reynolds has scored 73 career touchdowns (all rushing), the most in NCAA history by a quarterback and the most by any player in school history. The 73 career rushing touchdowns are tied for the second most in NCAA history among all players for rushing touchdowns and he is just four behind record holder Montee Ball of Wisconsin. Reynolds will be one to watch today and next week’s game against South Florida on Halloween.

There will be two fly-overs today. At the conclusion of the National Anthem, five SNJ-5 TEXANs based out of Virginia and Maryland will fly-by and then, when the Navy team runs out, two F/A 18E’s from the VFA-81 “SUN LINERS” and two F/A 18C’s from the VFA-131 “WILDCATS” stationed out of Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, Va will fly-by. The second fly-over will feature Naval Academy grads Lt. Cmdr. Adam Bryan, USNA ‘05, Lt. Cmdr. Patrick Bookey, USNA ‘03, Lt. Matt Davidson, USNA ‘10 and Lt. Mary Ruttum USNA ‘10. Ruttum is an Annapolis native and a former women’s lacrosse player for the Mids.
