Navy Runs for 331 Yards Against Notre Dame

In an effort that came up just short from another upset over Notre Dame. It was clear if you watched the game that Navy was a play or two short from winning the game. The Flexbone Offense, the fine Navy coaches and players nearly pulled this one out. – Scott Jazdzewski

Navy’s triple-option offense had Notre Dame flummoxed and flailing for most of the game.

…………The Midshipmen ran for 331 yards, 207 in the first half.

………….Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said the Irish were fortunate to pull out the victory.

“They executed flawlessly today,” Kelly said. “They really put us in a position where we had to play great in the second half.”

Navy had no turnovers, no penalties and held the ball for 37:36 while the Irish had it just 22:24.

……………Reynolds completed six of nine passes for 88 yards, including two key passes that gave Navy its final lead. First he threw an 18-yard pass to Marcus Thomas to the Notre Dame 49. After three running plays, Reynolds then found a wide open Matt Aiken for a 34-yard score.

The Midshipmen finished with 419 yards total offense and had 27 first downs, the most ever by a Navy team against Notre dame.

“Coach put together a brilliant game plan. We were able to execute it on the field and move the ball,” Reynolds said

………………”When you play a team like that, you try to get out to an early lead and take them out of their game plan. If not, you’re going to have a nail biter like that because they do a great job of staying on the field offensively and limiting your touches,” Rees said.
