Final Score: Navy 34, Army 0
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Shun White ran for 148 yards and scored two touchdowns, as the Navy Midshipmen defeated the Army Black Knights for a seventh straight time, 34-0 at Lincoln Financial Field.
Navy (8-4) set a new academy record with its 13th straight win over the other service academies, as the Mids retain the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for a school-record sixth consecutive season. Senior fullback Eric Kettani also went over 100 yards on the ground, finishing with 125 yards and a score for the nation's top rushing offense.
Army (3-9) senior fullback Collin Mooney ran for 55 yards to finish with a school-record 1,339 yards on the season, breaking Mike Mayweather's 18-yard- old mark by one yard. Mooney gained that last yard on the game's final play, after coach Stan Brock called a timeout to make it possible.
On Navy's third offensive play, White sent the Navy fans into a frenzy when he raced 65 yards into the end zone to give the Midshipmen an early 7-0 lead.
Later in the first quarter, Navy kicker Matt Harmon made it a 10-0 game with a 23-yard field goal, capping an eight-play, 79-yard drive.
White accounted for the only points of the second quarter, as he caught an 18- yard touchdown pass from Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada to send Navy into the locker room with a 17-0 halftime lead.
The Mids extended their lead midway through the third quarter, when Kettani scored on a five-yard run, which capped a 14-play, 72-yard drive that took nearly eight minutes off the clock.
Harmon added a 36-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, and Navy linebacker Ram Vela accounted for the final score on a 68-yard interception return in the final minute.
Army was shut out by Navy for the first time since 1978. Navy is headed to its school-record sixth straight bowl game, as the Mids will play in the EagleBank Bowl at RFK Stadium on December 20th against a projected opponent from the ACC.
