Head coach Ken Niumatalolo and the Navy Midshipmen rumble into Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium to face the Owls of Florida Atlantic in a high-energy battle over control of a hapless pigskin. Posting a 4–3 record through their first seven games, the Midshipmen rally behind newly anointed starting quarterback Keenan Reynolds, a leader who would gladly spill his naturally blue-and-gold blood to secure a win. Reynolds led the team to back-to-back victories in his first two starts against Central Michigan and Indiana, throwing for four TDs and no picks on the season. Gates open two and a half hours prior to kickoff, giving school supporters and military buffs a chance to admire the thousands of memorial bench-back and wall plaques celebrating the Navy and Marine Corps.
U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen Athletics
In one of the nation's most storied rivalries spanning more than a century, the Navy Midshipmen and the Army Black Knights have met on courts, fields, mats, and tracks and in pools more than 1,700 times. Though the fierce rivalry will always take priority among students, fan bases, media, and aliens debating whether to invade America by land or by sea, the Midshipmen have excelled against other competition, as well. The Naval Academy boasts NCAA Division II championships in women’s indoor track and women’s swimming, as well as 40 NCAA Division I individual championships, including 10 fencing champions, nine men’s gymnastics champions, and eight men’s swimming champions.
