A quick rundown on how the service academy teams did today:
• ARMY (1-1) took it on the chin, losing to Hawaii, 31-28. A fumble in the final minute resulted in Hawaii getting one last shot to win the game, and the ensuing field goal was the difference. Read more on the Army Times site.
• AIR FORCE (2-0) knocked off Brigham Young, 35-14, in the teams’ last meeting before BYU bails on the Mountain West Conference. It’s a big win, considering BYU leads the all-time series 24-7 after today’s game — and it was the first time the Falcons won in the series since 2003. The Gazette in Colorado Springs has more details.
• NAVY (1-1) had a tougher time than expected against Georgia Southern, pulling out a 13-7 win in the Paul Johnson Cup. See Phil Creed’s post below for more details.
• COAST GUARD won the Secretaries’ Cup for the first time since 2007, beating Merchant Marine, 10-8, in picturesque New London in the Bears’ season opener. Read more on the Coast Guard Athletics site.
