Halftime, Navy 7 - Ohio State 6

DeBrandon Sanders scored Navy's first touchdown with a diving one-yard run to the pylon giving the Mids a 7-3 lead with 14:04 remaining in the second quarter.

Both teams' defenses stepped up and forced three-and-outs on the ensuing two drives.

Ohio State's offense got rolling on their next possession.  QB J.T. Barrett led the Buckeyes to the Navy 8 before throwing a costly interception to Navy defensive captain, Parrish Gaines.

The Mids were held to a three-and-out and Ohio State took over on the Navy 41.  The Buckeye's drove to the Navy 11 where Neurenberger kicked his second FG of the game cutting the Navy lead to one.

Navy's offense answered the Ohio State scoring drive and drove deep into OSU territory.  The Mids attempted a 36-yard FG and missed wide right.  Ohio State took a knee and the half ended with Navy holding a one-point lead.
