Jones was the prime beneficiary to Navy
's 24-0 halftime deficit, as he had 9 catches for 134 yards and a touchdown. The nine receptions are the most by a Navy player since Josh Bock caught nine passes for 119 yards and a TD against Tulane

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Starting for the first time since the Louisiana Tech
game, King turned in a career-high 10 tackles. His previous high was four stops against Louisiana Tech.
