Texas St got a week to rest up for Navy

The Associated Press

SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) Dennis Franchione has a bone to pick with the feds.

It's not foreign policy or taxes that are troubling Franchione. No, the Texas State coach has a more pressing problem as his Bobcats prepare to host Navy on Saturday night.

"We're letting big guys in the academies now," Franchione said, a sly smile emerging. "I thought they were supposed to be little guys. They've got a 300-pound nose guard (Bernard Sarra). What's he do?"

That size has helped the Midshipmen (1-1) get off to a strong start, which includes leading the nation in team rushing offense.

Navy is coming off a 31-24 victory over Temple on Sept. 6 and was impressive in a season-opening loss to Ohio State.

Texas State, which had a bye last week, had a school-record 697 yards in a 65-0 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Aug. 30.
