The Navy leads the Army 14-13 through three-quarters of its annual clash in “America’s Game.” Although the Black Knights took a 13-7 halftime lead, the Midshipmen have all their momentum at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Although he lagged for most of the game, the Navy edged Army 100-12 in the third quarter with an excellent score of 10 games and 74 yards that took 5.58 hours on the clock. Midshipmen quarterback Tai Lavatai found the ground end zone for his second score of the game, giving Navy the lead with 15 minutes left.
Army quarterback Christian Anderson broke free for a 56-yard touchdown in game three to give the Black Knights an early lead. Navy retaliated with an 11-play, 83-yard drive that culminated with Lavatai’s first touchdown, which came from 8 yards on third and on goal. Two Army field goals, including one with 11 seconds left in the first half, gave the Black Knights their six point lead at halftime.
The game, which is typically played with an old-fashioned, triple-option approach from both teams, has been more of a shootout than any in recent memory with 15 passes thrown at three quarters. The 36 over / under total was FBS’s lowest this season, and around 75% of public money was on top at kickoff. The Army entered as a 7-point favorite.
