Navy is 10-1 (.909) in home openers under head coach Ken Niumatalolo with its only loss a 31-24 decision against Rutgers in 2014. The Mids own wins over Towson, LA Tech, Georgia Southern, Delaware (twice), VMI, Colgate, Fordham, Tulane and Memphis.

The March-On of the Brigade of Midshipmen will begin at 3:12 pm.

Saturday’s flyby will feature two Boeing F/A-18 Hornets from the “Salty Dogs” of VX-23 based out of Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md. Piloting the lead aircraft will be Lt. Matthew Dickens, USNA Class of 2009 with Weapons Systems Officer Lt. Cmdr. Daniel Tantillo, USNA Class of 2008. The wing aircraft will be piloted by Lt. Jonathan Larsen, USNA Class of 2009 with Weapons Systems Officer Lt. Alan Helm, USNA Class of 2009. The Salty Dogs are responsible for test and evaluation of the Navy and Marine Corps’ fixed wing tactical aircraft and their associated weapon systems.

Joe Bellino’s #27 will be placed on the turf at the 27-yard line at both ends of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium facing Navy’s sideline as a tribute and in memory of the 1960 Heisman Trophy winner, who passed away on March 27. Bellino was Navy’s first Heisman Trophy winner and the first to have his number retired.
