Temple convincingly tops Navy in AAC Championship


With a win, Navy could make a case for itself to make it to the Cotton Bowl at seasons end.

However, they failed to do enough against Temple in the AAC Championship game and can kiss those hopes goodbye.

Temple held Navy offensively the entire game. The result of this game appeared to be inevitable from the start and Navy took a 24-3 lead into the halftime break. Playing without their starting quarterback Will Worth, the Midshipmen struggled to move the ball the entire game. Their typically potent option attack was held in check by the Owls and there was little doubt who was the superior team in this game.

Second-string quarterback Zach Abbey was forced to throw a lot more than Navy would like, 13 attempts, and that resulted in two interceptions and only 104 yards. On the ground, Abbey was also their leading rusher and managed only 70 yards on 14 attempts.

Temple continues to enjoy a turner around under fourth year coach Mark Rhule, who now has a record of 50-27 at Temple.
