Navy 37, Louisiana Tech 23


Something to take away from Navy’s come-from-behind victory last night should be Ricky Dobbs’ passing performance — 219 yards. Remember, this is a guy who threw for 157 yards — in his first two games combined. Granted, Louisiana Tech doesn’t pose the defensive challenges that Maryland or even Georgia Southern do, but that’s a good omen for the future, in case the Mids find themselves again having to rally.

Opening up the passing game, if even only slightly, is a good sign.

More coverage from Ruston:

• The air attack stunned the Louisiana Tech defense, writes Bill Wagner.

• More from Wagner: Backup quarterback Kriss Proctor played a pivotal role, even scoring a touchdown.

• From The News-Star in Monroe, La.: This was a tale of two halves.

• Louisiana Tech coach Sonny Dykes (son of Spike) said his team didn’t make plays on either side of the ball, Buddy Davis of the Ruston (La.) Daily Leader writes.
