Navy beat Georgia Southern 13-7 on Saturday and Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, and from the sound of things, it was not a pretty game from an offensive standpoint.
But a win is a win, especially for a Navy squad coming off a short week of preparation. Those kind of weeks can throw a team off — just ask Virginia Tech.
