Navy Football lost their first game in 28 days on Saturday night as the Memphis Tigers defeated the Midshipmen 10-7

The Midshipmen had not played since their October 31st matchup against SMU (where they lost, 51-37). Navy was originally scheduled to play Tulsa on November 7th and Memphis on November 14th, but the games were rescheduled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Navy’s November 21st game against USF has been canceled.

It’s inspiring to think that Navy was able to salvage this season. After the cancelations started to stack up, and the fact that other service academies had begun seeing cases appear on their side-lines, there was plenty of speculation that Navy may end their season. Luckily, the team and the conference were able to reschedule most of the lost games.

The first half saw early sparks fizzle out for both teams.

Navy began the game with a 3 and out but got the ball back quickly. After being forced to another 3 and out, Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo called a fake punt on 4th and 1. J’arius Warren rushed the ball 24-yards to the 50. Mark Walker, 2 receptions for 38-yards, would pull in a 23-yard pass on this drive, but the highlight came when Nelson Smith, 142-yards on 29 carries, scored on a 22-yard run to give Navy a 7-0 lead in the first.

Memphis answered quickly. QB Brady White, 18-32 20-yards and a touchdown found Calvin Austin, 2 receptions for 21-yards, for 14-yards to cap off a 6-play, 79-yard drive to make it 7-7.

The first half got ugly after that.

Navy’s last 4 drives of the first half ended in two punts, a turnover on downs (with a fumble), and an interception while in the Memphis Red Zone. Navy QB Tyger Goslin,3-9 for 73-yards, was intercepted by Q. Johnson.

Memphis, with under two minutes to go in the half, marched down the field for 64-yards before Navy’s Jamal Glenn forced Memphis receiver T. Washington to fumble at the Navy 22.

Finally, late in the 4th quarter, Memphis Kicker Riley Patterson kicked the game-winning field goal to give Navy a crushing defeat and narrowing their chances at a conference championship.

Navy’s next game will be at home against Tulsa. The time is 3:30pm
