Mids face toughest challenge in No. 24 Rutgers

Navy notebook

October 11, 2006|By Gary Lambrecht | Gary Lambrecht,Sun reporter

The last time Navy faced a defense that predominantly lined up in an eight-man front, the Midshipmen destroyed Connecticut, 41-17. Navy amassed 605 yards, including 464 on the ground. Before that humbling game 11 days ago, UConn had the fourth-ranked rushing defense in the country.

The Mids (5-1) expect to see lots of eight-man fronts from visiting Rutgers on Saturday. But Navy in no way anticipates the Scarlet Knights falling apart, not even against the nation's top rushing attack.

Rutgers@Navy Saturday, 1:30 p.m., 1090 AM, 1430 AM, 1500 AM Line: Navy by 1 1/2
