September 23, 2007|By Sandra McKee | Sandra McKee,Sun reporter

Navy backup quarterback Jarod Bryant, who felt responsible for his team's loss last week, and backup kicker Joey Bullen, who couldn't oust starter Matt Harmon during practice last week, found redemption yesterday while rallying the Midshipmen to a 46-43 victory over visiting Duke as time ran out.

Bryant, who fumbled a pitch that could have gone for a game-winning touchdown in overtime against Ball State, came off the bench yesterday to lead the Mids to a touchdown, a two-point conversion and two field goals in the final quarter.
