Navy 14 - Texas St. 3, 3rd Quarter

Navy kicked off to start the second half and Texas State fumbled.  Navy recovered on the 16 yard line.  On Navy's first play, Noah Copeland found the end zone for his second TD of the game.  Navy leads 14-0.

Navy forced a three-and-out on Texas State's next drive.

The Mids took over at their own 34 following Texas State's punt.  Noah Copeland started the drive with an 11-yard run to the 45.  Five plays later, Freshman QB Keenan Reynolds scrambled 37 yards to the Texas State 2 yard line.  A holding penalty, a rush for negative yards, and two incomplete passes later the Mids attempted and missed a 33-yard field goal attempt.

Texas State put together an impressive 15 play, 61 yard drive that ended with a Will Johnson 36-yard field goal.  The score cut Navy's lead to 21-3.  The Bobcats moved methodically down the field running over one play over nine yards - a 15 yard pass from Shaun Rutherford to Brandon Smith for 15 yards.

Navy started their next drive at their own 25 yard line.  On their fourth play from scrimmage, senior Gee Gee Green found running room and moved to the Texas State 34 yard line.

The quarter ended with Navy leading 14-3.
