The Midshipmen have not been sharp early in their past few games, but offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper has made enough adjustments and freshman quarterback Keenan Reynolds has made enough plays for the offense to be effective. Texas State tried to focus on Reynolds in Navy’s 21-10 win in its last game on Nov. 17, holding the new Navy star to 85 yards total offense. But Reynolds got the ball in the hands of sophomore fullback Noah Copeland, who rushed for 110 yards and two TDs on 17 carries, as well as senior slotback Gee Gee Greene, who had a combined 109 yards rushing and receiving (including 71 yards with a touchdown on 14 carries). Army’s rushing defense is ranked 118th out of 120 in Football Bowl Subdivision, giving up more than 283 yards per game. Army also allows 37 points per game. The Black Knights will try to force turnovers, as they did in getting five in a 41-21 win over Air Force. But Reynolds has kept his mistakes to a mininum, throwing only one interception in 59 attempts and losing two fumbles (both against Troy in a 41-31 defeat). The Midshipmen might need to finish their drives with touchdowns. After making his first seven field goal attempts this season, freshman kicker Nick Sloan has made only two of his last six, including two misses in Navy’s previous game.
