Tulsa and Navy went old school on Saturday.
Navy entered the game second nationally in rushing and Tulsa was fourth, but this was extreme, even by their standards. The teams combined to throw just 22 passes in Navy’s 31-21 win on Saturday.
Navy’s triple-option attack ran 68 times for 421 yards and passed just four times. Tulsa ran 39 times and passed 18, with most of the throws coming when the Golden Hurricane were playing catch-up in the fourth quarter. The teams combined for 650 yards rushing and 205 yards passing.
Navy quarterback Zach Abey ran 36 times for 185 yards and three touchdowns, while Tulsa quarterback Chad President ran 12 times for 151 yards.
Fittingly, Tulsa running back D'Angelo Brewer went over 3,000 yards rushing for his career.
