3 takeaways from upset loss to Navy Midshipmen | marketrealtime.com

As quickly as UCF gained control of first place in the American Athletic Conference, it ceded it right back to the chasing pack.

Navy (4-7, 4-4 AAC) rushed for 248 yards, and got a four-sack performance from John Marshall to snap a four-game losing streak with a 17-14 victory Saturday at FBC Mortgage Stadium.

UCF (8-3, 5-2) lost not only the game, and assuredly its spot in the College Football Playoff selection committee’s rankings, but also virtually any chance to host the league’s championship game. Should Cincinnati defeat Temple later Saturday afternoon, either the Bearcats or Tulane will gain home-field advantage.

“It’s frustrating but at the end of the day … wherever we end up, put the ball down and play,” said UCF redshirt junior defensive tackle Ricky Barber, who tied for the team lead with 13 total tackles.
