November 4, 1944 - The first of two academy losses
This wartime Navy squad was loaded.
ND scored first on a 20 yd run by Angsman - but it was called back by an Irish penalty.
Navy took charge - scoring 2 TDs (with ND transfer Fred Early kicking an XP) to lead 13-0.
The Irish simply couldn't run against the Midshipmen.
The lead increased to 19-0 early in the second half before QB Dancewicz finally got the Irish going with his passing on a 78 yd march for a TD.
Navy responded immediately with another TD (Navy 25 ND 7).
The teams traded 4th Q TDs and the Irish undefeated days were over with Navy winning 32-13. Bob Kelly led all ND rushers with only 31 yds on 15 carries.
