3:25 - The call was confirmed.  Navy has the ball 1st-and-10 on the Tulsa 35 with 1:00 remaining and Tulsa has no timeouts.  Navy will hold on for a 42-40 win over Tulsa and be in sole possession of the lead in the AAC Western Division.

3:22 - Will Worth with a QB keep on a 4th-and-1 for Navy runs for 1 yard to keep the drive alive. After the play the Tulsa defense was called for unsportsmanlike conduct.  The play is under review.

3:11 - Evans completes a 22 yard TD pass to Chris Minter and Tulsa cuts Navy's lead to 42-40 with 5:30 remaining in the game.  This was Evans' fourth passing TD today to four different receivers. Tulsa's scoring drive was 8-72-2:28.

3:08 - Tulsa is moving the ball quickly downfield with the ball at the Navy 35.

2:13 - Navy is facing a 4th-and-1 on the Tulsa 36.  Will they go for it? My guess is yes.
