Pregame - 

The Navy Midshipmen host the Lehigh Mountain Hawks at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium this afternoon at 3:30.  Navy comes into the game with a 1-1 record following last week's 22-21 victory over AAC rival, Memphis.  The Mountain Hawks have an identical record with a win over Saint Francis (PA) and a loss to Villanova.  This will be the 22nd meeting for these two teams dating back to 1889.  The Mids lost the most recent meeting, 24-9 in 1987.  These two schools face each other in Patriot League action in all sports except football.  This will be Lehigh's first contest against an FBS opponent since they faced Connecticut in 2003.

Navy is often known as much about their pregame festivities as they are about the games.  The Brigade of Midshipmen will march on to the field at 3:11.  The National Anthem, always a little more meaningful at the academies will take place at 3:20.  Today's fly-over will be with four F/A-18F Super Hornets.  A parachute jumper from Team Fastrax will jump with the American flag at 3:24.
