Hopkins' play on offense and the Army defense forcing four Navy turnovers and holding the Midshipmen to 3.85 yards per play gave the Knights their third straight win over Navy, and gave Army its second consecutive 10-win season.

The fumble, forced on a strip sack by linebacker Kenneth Brinson, was Navy QB Zach Abey's third turnover of the game.

The series began in 1890, and Navy leads 60-51-7.

On the ensuing possession, Lewis was knocked out of the game when the Midshipmen attempted a pass to him on third-and-long trick play. Hopkins rushed for 83 yards and scored both of Army's touchdowns. Navy kicked a field goal with 30 seconds left but didn't recover the ensuing onside kick.

Navy: Had 0 yards passing and 64 yards rushing through three quarters. The chains had already reset for the upcoming first down, which apparently complicated the reviewal.

Navy didn't score after getting the ball back thanks to a fumble inside the red zone. Last year's game had a combined three pass attempts and quarterbacks for each team are usually the leading rushers.

No. 22 Army (9-2) is in the AP Top 25 for the first time since 1996.

While it took officials forever to figure out what to do, they eventually chose to re-spot the ball and brought the chains out on the field to determine that the Black Knights were about a foot short of a first down, giving Navy the ball with 14:30 remaining in the quarter.

Before the game Saturday, Navy seriously and intently was on guard for precious cargo. With a win Saturday, the Black Knights can win the coveted Commander-in-Chief's Trophy.
