Injury-marred Navy will try to keep pace with Louisiana Tech and its high-flying offense when the teams meet Friday in the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, Texas (4:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).The Midshipmen (9-3) have lost two starting quarterbacks and both co-captains this season, which directly led to the late slump.The Bulldogs (8-5) are ranked fifth in the nation in total offense and reached the Conference USA title game.Both teams dropped their past two games and are looking to finish the season strong.Every time you play in a bowl, you are representing not only your school, but your conference as well, Louisiana Tech coach Skip Holtz said. This is a chance to show the nation that Louisiana Tech has a good program and that Conference USA plays good football.Navy also had one of the nations most powerful attacks in the nation before starting quarterback Will Worth and slotback Toneo Gulley were injured on the same play in a 34-10 loss to Temple in the American Athletic Conference championship game. Navy then had its 14-game winning streak against Army snapped the following week with sophomore quarterback Zach Abey forced into action in a 21-17 loss.It was the first time the Midshipmen dropped back-to-back games since 2014, when they lost three in a row to Rutgers, Western Kentucky and Air Force. Nonetheless, a win in the Armed Forces Bowl would give the Navy back-to-back 10-win seasons for the first time in school history.This is a big game for us, Navy offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ivin Jasper said. We have to win this football game. Weve had a great year. Weve had some losses here and there, but at the same time, weve won nine games with a chance to win 10. Were not going to hold our heads down. Were going to find a way to win this football game.Despite the injuries, Navy enters the game averaging 310.9 rushing yards per game. The Midshipmen will lean heavily on fullbacks Shawn White and Chris High to keep Louisiana Techs offense off the field.The Bulldogs average 44 points per game and are led by quarterback Ryan Higgins, who has thrown for 4,208 yards -- third best in the nation. Higgins also has 37 touchdown passes with just eight interceptions. He is ranked sixth in the country in passing efficiency (166.6) and eighth in completions per game (25).What Higgins has been able to do as a fifth-year senior is very impressive, Holtz said. His development has been one of the big reasons for our success. Higgins has done a great job of protecting the football and making good decisions. He understands the offense and has a very accurate arm.Higgins two favorite targets are receivers Trent Taylor and Carlos Henderson. Taylor has 124 receptions for 1,570 yards with 10 touchdowns, while Henderson enters the game with 72 catches for 1,406 yards and 17 touchdowns -- second in the nation. Henderson is also averaging 30.4 yards per kickoff return with another two touchdowns.Jarred Craft leads Louisiana Techs ground attack with 1,011 yards and nine touchdowns on 174 carries.The Bulldogs started the season 1/3 before going on a seven-game winning streak. Louisiana Tech then lost Southern Mississippi 39-24 in the regular-season finale and fell to Western Kentucky 58-44 in the Conference USA title game.The Midshipmen are allowing 429 yards and 29.7 points per game. Navy was dealt a key loss on defense when linebacker and co-captain Daniel Gonzales sustained a season-ending foot injury against Air Force on Oct. 1.The rest of the Midshipmen are trying to carry the load. They know a big challenge awaits against Louisiana Tech.They have a great offense, great receivers and great line, said Navy linebacker Micah Thomas, who leads the team with 98 tackles. We just have to play hard. Theyre going to catch the ball. Theyre going to get some yards on the ground. Its going to happen. We just have to play with our fundamentals and tackle well. Then, I think we should be OK to slow them down a little bit. Cheap Air Max Store .

Sam Thaidays Four Nations campaign is almost certainly over after the veteran Kangaroos and Queensland forward suffering a suspected fractured eye socket.Thaiday was taken to hospital midway through the second half after being caught by the head of Englands James Graham in Australias 38-16 win at the London Stadium early on Monday (AEDT).It is the second time Grahams head has caused a serious injury to an opponent with England teammate Sam Burgess suffering the same injury during the 2014 NRL grand finalCoach Mal Meninga confirmed the news in his post-match press conference but absolved Canterbury skipper Graham of any blame.Unfortunately it will probably put him out of the game next week, Meninga said of Thaiday.I think it was accidental.Cooper Cronk, who was named man of the match, said Thaiday knew immediately that he had a serious problem and said the injury had taken some of the shine off a commprehensive win.ddddddddddddHe knew about it as soon as it happened and our fingers, toes and every hair follicle is crossed for him that its a positive scan result, Cronk said.There is no doubt that he will be part of our team in the final whether hes playing or not.Cronk also believes the squad - who have already lost Josh Mansour to a serious knee injury - is filled with enough quality to cope and claimed its the strongest hes been involved with since debuting in 2009.With no disrespect to the other squads weve had previously but we go deep into the 24-man roster, he said.Mal has stated he picked his best team tonight, and there will probably be changes through injury but as a senior player I am super confident you can bring in anyone in this squad they can do a job.
