PASSING OFFENSE
C
2 of 5 for 44 yards but who cares when your offense can rush for over 500 yards?
RUSHING OFFENSE
A+
Coach Ken looks like he has the offense better than ever. 349 yards rushing by Shun White! Some starting running backs won't get that all season.
PASSING DEFENSE
C-
Looks like it's back to 2007 with our pass defense. Lots of work to be done here.
RUSHING DEFENSE
B
Nice job limiting the Tigers to just 70 yards rushing. Linebacker Clint Sovie was a stone wall for the Navy defense. He led the Mids in tackles with 8 and also broke up 2 passes.
SPECIAL TEAMS
B
Matt Harmon made 2 of 3 field goals. Emmett Merchant had a 28-yard kickoff return. No major breakdowns here.
COACHING
B+
Congratulations to coach Ken Niumatalolo for picking up his first college victory. He'll get Navy's pass defense fixed and go on to coach Navy to many more wins.
OVERALL GRADE
B
A solid performance against a Football Championship Division team, these teams have given the Mids fits in the past. Expect Navy to work hard on the passing defense. The Mids will face two pass happy teams in Ball State and Duke over the next couple weeks.
