Inspiring Army-Navy Prayer, Anthem Upstages Barnburner of a Snowy Rivalry Game

Inspiring Army-Navy Prayer, Anthem Upstages Barnburner of a Snowy Rivalry Game

For fans not quite ready to let go of regular season college football before bowl season begins next week, the annual Army-Navy game is often a compelling end of the campaign.

Last season, Navy fell to Army for the first time since 2001, but the Midshipmen retain a 60-50-7 overall lead in the series.

Trailing 13-7 early in the fourth quarter, Bradshaw led a 13-play, 65-yard drive and plunged in from the 1 for the tying touchdown with just over five minutes to play.

Army topped Navy 14-13 to win the 118th meeting between the two rivals. A combined Army-Navy glee club, a snowy field, and an inspiring prayer created a memorable scene.

Moehring's teammates used their hands and feet to clear snow from an area to attempt the kick.

Navy kicker Bennett Moehring missed a 48-yard field goal as time expired to seal a 14-13 victory for Army at snow-covered Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

ABOUT NAVY (6-5): Abey (1,322 yards, 14 touchdowns), who sustained a concussion and a shoulder injury against Temple on November 2 and missed the SMU game November 11, was held to 180 rushing yards and one touchdown over his last three games.

Navy (6-6) was called for two false start penalties during the final drive, and the 10 yards lost came back to bite the Midshipmen as Moehring's kick just missed the mark.

Bradshaw finished with 94 yards on 21 carries with the winning touchdown.

Navy controlled most of the game as freshman quarterback Malcolm Perry ran up and down the field for a total of 250 yards and one touchdown. All they have to do is beat San Diego State in the Armed Forces Bowl later this month. Navy faces Virginia in the Military Bowl on December 28. "The 14 wins don't help us, the loss a year ago doesn't hurt us", Midshipmen coach Ken Niumatalolo told reporters.
