Recap: Texas State vs. Navy

San Marcos, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Tago Smith threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more, helping the Navy Midshipmen knock off the Texas State Bobcats, 35-21, at Bobcat Stadium.

Smith completed 5-of-7 pass attempts for 117 yards for the Midshipmen (2-1). He also ran the ball 27 times, rushing for 85 yards. Noah Copeland carried the ball 11 times for a game-high 116 yards as the team generated 352 yards on 57 attempts on the ground.

Tyler Jones completed 24-of-36 pass attempts for the Bobcats (1-1), good for 231 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 82 yards and a score, while Robert Lowe ran for 92 yards and a TD in the losing effort.

Just over five minutes into the contest, Chris Swain got Navy going with a 14- yard touchdown run. In the final minute of the opening quarter, Brendan Dudeck reeled in a six-yard touchdown pass from Smith to make it 14-0.

The Midshipmen added to their lead following Smith's keeper from one yard out for the score in the second frame. Smith repeated the feat with another one- yard touchdown run, three-and-a-half minutes later, pushing Navy out to a 28-0 lead.

The Bobcats got on the board in the final minute of the half on a one-yard run by Jones, capping a 17-play, 75-yard drive.

After a scoreless third quarter, the Bobcats cut into the deficit once more as Lowe crossed the goal line from a yard out.

Less than a minute later, however, Smith found Jamir Tillman with a 67-yard touchdown pass, pushing the score to 35-14.

The Bobcats had one last gasp in the final minutes thanks to Terrence Franks who turned a 12-yard pass from Jones into another TD for the hosts, but it wasn't nearly enough to hold off the Academy.

Texas State, which generated 442 yards of offense, compared to 469 yards for the Midshipmen, was hampered by 11 penalties, amounting to 124 yards of lost field position.
