The call on the field was an Army first down because quarterback Kelvin Hopkins Jr. ran the ball and stretch out his arm while falling, appearing to get the first down. But Army and Navy passed on the rush and tried to throw, with mixed results. It was Abey's third turnover of the day as he was responsible for both interceptions in the first half. He also helped Army convert some critical third downs during the game with his arm, as he completed 4 of 9 passes for 61 yards. Navy kicked a field goal with 30 seconds left but didn't recover the ensuing onside kick.
Before the game Saturday, Navy seriously and intently was on guard for precious cargo. Plus, close-ups of Bill the Goat. And each side safely returned "captives" in the Prisoner Exchange - when seven midshipmen and seven cadets swap service academies for a semester. Lost a key fumble inside the 10 in the fourth when it was still 10-0.
