That field goal capped an 11-play, 68-yard drive early in the second quarter. The Spartans have made three other trips into Navy territory, but have come away empty. The most recent ended at the Midshipmen 41 when quarterback David Fales was intercepted by Matt Warrick.
Navy's best drive came on their first of the game. The Midshipmen drove deep into San Jose State territory before quarterback Trey Miller gave the ball away on a fumble.
The Spartans should be leading by much more, as they have outgained Navy 202 to 76. The San Jose State defense has held the Midshipmen's option attack down, limiting them to 2.3 yards per carry.
San Jose State will receive the ball to start the second half.
