It's fitting that -- sitting on 573 rushing yards -- Navy was willing to sacrifice a school record in order to secure a victory. That's exactly what the Midshipmen did in the waning seconds of Saturday's 42-32 win over the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Inside the Bearcats' 10-yard line, Navy (3-0 overall, 2-0 AAC) took a knee twice to end the game, losing four yards in the process and bringing their rushing total to 569 yards on the day, just three shy of the team record 572 set against North Texas in 2007.

After a bye week, quarterback Zach Abey led Navy's ground game against Cincinnati (2-2, 0-1 AAC) with 128 yards and two touchdowns. He added a 19-yards touchdown pass to Tyler Carmona in the first quarter. Sophomore slotback Malcolm Perry, who notoriously replaced injured quarterback Will Worth in the 2016 season opener after starting the game in the stands, ran 10 times for 100 yards and one touchdown. Senior slotback Josh Brown ran for the first two touchdowns of his career.

Navy's 622 total yards are their most since putting up 680 in that 2007 game against North Texas.

The Midshipmen travel to face Tulsa on Saturday, September 30 at 3:30 p.m. on ESPNU. They return to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium for the highly-anticipated matchup against Air Force on Saturday, October 7 at 3:30 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.
