Rutgers gearing up to face Navy's option offense

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Rutgers doesn't have time to wallow after squandering a chance to win its first Big Ten Conference game. Coming off a 13-10 loss to Penn State, The Scarlet Knights (2-1) will face Navy and its high-octane option offense on Saturday.

Temple’s Loss to Navy Shouldn’t Be Cause for Concern

Navy isn’t an easy win by any measure. Just ask Ohio State. The Midshipmen were beating the Buckeyes (then the No. 5 team in the country) well into the third quarter in Week 1. They’re also second in the nation in rushing yards. They’re the type of team that can upset any team in the country at any time. Photo used courtesy of cbslocal.com.

Silver Bullets Review: Navy

Ohio State’s 34-17 win over Navy to open the 2014 season answered some questions and left many others unanswered. We saw a tale of two Buckeye football teams on Saturday in Baltimore. The first-half Buckeyes were hard to watch and left very little to be confident in. The second-half Buckeyes looked like a completely different team that did a lot of things well. As we do each week...

Columbus, Ohio -- Last week Navy exposed some lingering questions about Ohio State's offensive line. Head coach Urban Meyer hopes the same does not happen with his secondary this week when his Buckeyes play host to Virginia Tech.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) It's already difficult to play Navy because of the tough, dedicated and disciplined players on any service academy's roster. On top of that, No. 5 Ohio State must get ready for the Midshipmen's lethal, unique offense. Navy is one of the few full-time practitioners of the triple-option left at the college level.
