GREENVILLE, N.C. -- Only one thing stands between Navy and a division title -- an East Carolina team that the Midshipmen have dominated on the road.Navy will clinch the American Athletic Conferences West Division with a victory over the struggling Pirates on Saturday.First-year East Carolina coach Scottie Montgomery says hes using his teams spoiler status as motivation.Were going to try to pull motivation from everywhere we can get it from, Montgomery said.After beating Tulsa last week , the Midshipmen (7-2, 5-1) need only to beat East Carolina (3-7, 1-5) or SMU next week to wrap up the division title and a spot in the Americans title game on Dec. 3.Beating the Pirates hasnt exactly been much of a problem in Greenville: Navy has won both visits here by scores of 76-35 in 2010 and 56-28 two years later, averaging 516 yards rushing in those blowouts.And while Navys scheme remains the same, coach Ken Niumatalolo says those results dont mean anything this year.I dont know the reason -- we happened to play well those games, Niumatalolo said. Its a new year, new game, new team, new coach. ... Everythings different. I mean, we cant look at that. Im sure theyre not looking at it. The past is the past.The present has been rough for Montgomery in his first season as a head coach. The Pirates have lost two straight and seven of eight, and are coming off a 55-31 loss to SMU . East Carolina ranks 124th nationally in turnover margin, with 22 giveaways to just eight takeaways.Those are definitely things we are going to have to clean up if were going to move forward with everything that were trying to get done, Montgomery said.---Some other things to know about the Navy-East Carolina game:NAVYS OFFENSE: With their triple-option, ball-control offense, the Midshipmen always seem to rank among the nations best teams on the ground. Navy is fourth nationally -- but behind the other two service academies -- with an average of nearly 310 yards rushing. This is going to be a possession game, Montgomery said. We can slow the game down, and we can speed the game up, but it comes down to possessions.ZAY DAY: East Carolina WR Zay Jones leads the nation in yards receiving (1,473) and receptions (139) -- and enters the Navy game needing just eight catches to break the NCAA career record held by a former Pirates teammate, Justin Hardy, who caught 380 passes from 2011-14. Its conflicting to start with because this isnt where we want to be, Montgomery said. There are a lot of things that we want to do better. In the middle of it all, I see the shining light that Zay has been in. I know its been tough for him and its especially tough when youre a senior.MIDS HEALTH: Niumatalolo says starting CB Elijah Merchant (head) is doubtful, RB Calvin Cass (ankle) is probable and FB Chris High (ankle) remains questionable. High, whose 71 carries are second only to QB Will Worth (215), started the first eight games but missed the Tulsa game.FULL OR HALF NELSON? Montgomery says QB Philip Nelson has been dealing with shoulder tenderness. Nelson was 11 of 19 for 144 yards with two interceptions, one returned 70 yards for a touchdown, in the loss to SMU. Gardner Minshew replaced him and was 18 of 30 for 170 yards with a touchdown and also threw a pick-six.---More AP college football: http://www.collegefootball.ap.org Nike Vapormax Billig Kaufen .

EVANSTON, Ill. -- Offenses are granted four downs in college football, so Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck figured he might as well use them all.The Broncos going 4 for 4 on fourth down was a key in their upset of Northwestern on Saturday.We didnt come here to lay up. We came here to win a football game, Fleck said. I believe in this football team and I believe in our short-yardage system. It comes down to attitude, how and will, and I believe thats what we do well.Zach Terrell threw for 218 yards and a touchdown and Jamauri Bogan had a 1-yard touchdown run on fourth down in Western Michigans 22-21 victory.Terrell was 26 of 36 as Western Michigans offense controlled the play throughout and held the ball for 39 minutes.Justin Jackson had 124 yards rushing and three rushing touchdowns, including a 46-yarder, for Northwestern.Clayton Thorson completed 15 of 22 passes for 196 yards. His fumble at the goal line in the final minutes thwarted Northwesterns comeback attempt.I saw a lot of space, Thorson said. Could have scored, but even if I didnt, I should have gone down or something. Cant fumble on the 1.The outcome essentially came down to two close plays at each goal line in the final minutes. Bogans touchdown with 5:38 remaining gave the Broncos the lead. The play was reviewed because there was a question whether his knee was down before he crossed over. The call stood.Our fullback, Leo (Ekwoge), went in there and destroyed things, our offensive line played really well and God was with me and he helped me tuck my leg just a little bit more, Bogan said.On the ensuing possession, Northwestern drove down the field before Thorson was hit by linebacker Robert Spillane and fumbled. Davontae Ginwright recovered for the Broncos for the touchback before stepping out of bounds. The play was reviewed because Ginwright threw the ball back on the field -- it was recovered by Northwestern -- but it was ruled he stepped out before getting rid of the ball.Not to discredit Western Michigan, but wheen you play as poorly as we did, those calls, the football gods, they go against you.dddddddddddd Wildcats coach Pat Fitzgerald said. You get what you earn, and thats what we deserve.Fleck was pumped, but was careful not to make too much of the win.How big is it? Its as big as the outside world makes it, he said. Inside our circle, its 1-0, and thats it.STRONG DEBUTWestern Michigan freshman kicker Butch Hampton converted three of four field goals with a long of 47. He missed his first attempt, hitting the crossbar from 50 yards out.How bout your first kick as a true freshman from 50? Fleck said. I think you saw what he could do.MENTOR-STUDENTAs a 35-year-old coach, its not surprising that Fleck looks up to Fitzgerald, who took over the Wildcats when he was 31.He is what I want to become, and thats a huge compliment to him because he does things the right way, Fleck said. He is one of my all-time mentors.THE TAKEAWAYWestern Michigan: The Broncos were picked as favorites to win the Mid-American Conference this season and they showed why. Terrell ended last season as the seventh-most efficient quarterback in the country and picked up right where he left off. Zach Terrell is the toughest football player Ive ever coached, Fleck said.Northwestern: The Wildcats tied a school record with 10 wins last season, but the opener showed they have a ways to go before they can think of achieving that type of production this season. For now, Jackson will be the workhorse on offense until Thorson and the young receiving corps work out the kinks. Defensively, the Wildcats struggled to get consistent pressure on Terrell and were regularly outmuscled on short-yardage plays.UP NEXTWestern Michigan: The Broncos host North Carolina Central on Saturday night.Northwestern: The Wildcats host Illinois State on Saturday in the second of four straight home games to start the season.
