Sept. 18, 2010
RUSTON, La. (AP) -Ricky Dobbs had a career day as a passer and Navy's option attack provided three second-half touchdowns to help the Midshipmen rally for a 37-23 win over Louisiana Tech here Saturday.
Dobbs threw for 219 yards, but Navy (2-1) went to its ground game after trailing 23-16 at halftime. Dobbs led Navy to 239 yards rushing in the second half, almost all of that on three long touchdown marches.
Dobbs' one-yard touchdown capped a 73-yard march on the opening drive of the second half. After he temporarily left the game, backup quarterback Kriss Proctor capped a 54-yard march with a seven-yard run that gave Navy a 30-23 lead late in the third quarter.
The Midshipmen then marched 81 yards, all on the ground, and Vince Murray scored on a 17-yard run to help seal the win.
The Bulldogs (1-2) scored on five straight possessions to end the first half.
