Army Vs. Navy 2011: Midshipmen Lead 7-0 After One Quarter

In the 112th meeting between the Navy Midshipmen and the Army Black Knights, the 4-7 Midshipmen lead the 3-8 Black Knights by a touchdown after a quarter of play. Despite similar records and the long-standing rivalry the score should come as no surprise to anyone since Navy entered the day as seven-point favorites and haven't lost to their rivals since 2001.

It should also come as no surprise that there has yet to be a passing completion during this game. Both teams are known for their running game, and both average 300-plus yards on the ground per contest.

Through one there's only been on pass attempt – by Trent Steelman of Army. Army has 80 yards rushing on 16 carries. Navy has 84 yards on the ground, on 19 carries. The only score of the game came via the ground, in the form of a four yard rumble by Navy running back Kriss Proctor

The remainder of the game can be seen on CBS. Army began the second quarter with possession of the football.
