AREA GRADE COMMENTS
PASSING OFFENSE

Kaipo didn't throw a completion in 3 attempts. Jarod Bryant did a little better completing 4 for 9 passed for 39 yards.
RUSHING OFFENSE
B-
Navy racked up over 370 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground but fumbles proved to be a sore spot and killed a few drives.
PASSING DEFENSE
D-
Riley Skinner had a great day for the Demon Deacons completing 22 of 28 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns. Kenneth Moore caught 15 passes for 181 yards. No Deacon pass was intercepted or broken up during the game.
RUSHING DEFENSE
D+
Josh Adams picked up over 131 yards rushing on 27 carries for the Deacons. Navy's Irv Spencer led the Mids with 10 tackles and 3 tackles for losses.
SPECIAL TEAMS
C+
Greg Veveto's only punt went for 28 yards. Joey Bullen made a 26-yard field goal. Kevin Marion had an 80-yard kick off return for the Deacons.
COACHING
C
Paul Johnson and his staff had a solid game plan for Wake but it just didn't pan out. The Mids will regroup and take care of business next week. Wake Forest is the defending ACC champions and now that they have their starting quarterback back not many teams will beat them.
OVERALL GRADE
C
Yes, it was an ugly game for Navy but it's certainly not time to go jump off a cliff. The Mids must regroup and get ready for a dangerous Delaware team next week.
