Two turnovers played big roles in the first half.
1) Trailing 14-7, Navy went for it on 4th and 8 from the Maryland 30 and converted.
But then, on third and goal from the 1, Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs fumbled. It happened when linebacker Adrian Moten leaped over top to hit Dobbs, and Antwine Perez recovered.
Does anybody remember the Lavar (Arrington) Leap at Penn State? I'm not saying Moten went that high, but it was quite a jump.
2) Maryland quarterback Jamarr Robinson's only pass attempt of the first half was intercepted as the Terps were threatening to go up by 21-0.
And another gaffe by Navy. On third and 6 from the Maryland 7, Dobbs rushed five yards but the clock expired on the first half before Mids could get the field goal unit in..
Maryland 14, Navy 7 at the half
