BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - When the Navy Midshipmen cruise into Bowling Green on Saturday the Hilltopper defense is going to have to be at its best to stop the triple option.
It's an offense the Tops have been preparing to face for longer than just this week.
Navy leads the country in rushing this year and back in 2011 when they were at Houchens Smith Stadium they gained more than 400 yards on the ground.
Head coach Bobby Petrino says when he saw Navy on the schedule, he decided to get ready for the Midshipmen right away.
The Tops have been preparing to face the triple option since the spring.
