Guts checked. Successful.

The WaPo headlined the Navy/Memphis game as “Guts? Check!” And indeed Navy’s underdog team had to reach deep to come back in the final minutes to upset American Athletic League Western Division favorites, Memphis, 22-21.

Blown out in Hawaii last week by a Run and Gun Hawaii Team anxious to continue after beating Colorado State the first week, Navy faced an even higher rated opponent in Memphis, and down by 12 points in the 4th Quarter, scratched and clawed out a win. Barely.

Yes, guts have been checked. Successful!
