The Midshipmen did rush for 370 yards in the loss, but they also gave up 420 total yards.
In that game, Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds threw just four passes, but he did rush for 42 yards and a touchdown. Ryan Williams-Jenkins led the Midshipmen in rushing by totaling 118 yards on just seven carries. Senior safety Parrish Gaines had an interception in the losing effort.
Temple played very well in their game against Vanderbilt last Thursday and ended up winning 37-7. The Owls' defense forced seven turnovers in the game and held Vanderbilt to just 278 total yards, including just 54 yards on the ground. Temple committed just three penalties in the game for a total of 23 yards.
