Navy unveiled a new wrinkle to its typically potent option attack in last week's thrilling victory over Air Force, an added dimension that bewildered Memphis coach Mike Norvell when he was reviewing film in preparation for Saturday's showdown with the undefeated Midshipmen in Memphis.
Navy orchestrated its option attack out of the shotgun against Air Force and rushed for 471 yards and four touchdowns in a 48-45 victory. Running back Malcolm Perry had a 91-yard touchdown run, and quarterback Zach Abey had a 75-yard touchdown run for the No. 25 Midshipmen, who are 5-0 for the first time since the 2004 season.
