Navy Sinks Army 42 To 23

Adam Ballard ran for 192 yards and two touchdowns to lead Navy to a 42-to-23 victory over Army in the 106th meeting between the service academies.
The Bowl-bound Midshipmen piled up 490 yards on the ground, including 99 from quarterback Lamar Owens, who ran for three touchdowns. Reggie Campbell added a 54-yard T-D run for the winners. Army q-b Zac Dahman threw for three touchdowns.
Navy improves to 7-and-4 while Army, which entered the game in Philadelphia riding a four-game win streak, dips to 4-and-7. The Midshipmen have won four straight and six of the last seven games against the Black Knights to take a one-game lead in the overall series at 50-49-and-7. Navy also captured the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy outright for the third straight year and that's a first in school history. The coveted trophy is awarded annually to the winner of the football competition between the three major service academies. It was on the line for both teams for the first time in nine years after both posted wins over Air Force.
