Navy defensive staff
Navy defeated LA Tech 32-14
Defensive coordinator Buddy Green has to be pleased with the Naval Academy’s defensive effort vs. LA Tech. Navy allowed just 10 first downs, 167 total yards, 11 net yards rushing, one touchdown, and forced four three & outs. After LA Tech took the opening drive and went 74 yards in 10 plays to take a 7-0 lead, Navy never let the Bulldogs find a rhythm offensively. The Midshipmen shut down the run game, tallied four quarterback sacks, and recorded one interception. Tech’s second touchdown was scored via punt return. Give credit to Buddy Green and the defensive staff at Navy.
