Things did not start too well for the Midshipmen. They were down 24-0 at the half and found themselves outscored 79-3 in the first six quarters of the 2020 college football season.
That’s when things changed on a dime. Navy’s vaunted rushing attack picked it up in the third quarter. Nelson Smith went for two scores on the ground to help pull the Midshipmen closer to the Green Wave. Shockingly, Navy also tallied 146 passing yards. As if 2020 wasn’t weird enough already.
Then, with the score tied 24-24 late in the fourth quarter, Daniel Davies nailed a 33-yard field goal to give Navy a shocking 27-24 upset win.
Obviously, fans watching the game from the confines of their homes had a lot to say about Navy’s dramatic comeback win.
