Option teams with inexperienced quarterbacks aren’t designed to come from behind. So goes the traditional football wisdom, at least.
Navy may have skipped that lesson.
Zach Abey led the Midshipmen down the field on a six-play, 32-yard scoring drive at the beginning of the third quarter, capping it himself with a 1-yard scoring plunge. The extra point made it 14-7, and the good news continued for the Mids when the Army offense sputtered on its ensuing possession.
Navy has the ball and the momentum, and the streak has signs of life.
