6:09 | 3rd qtr. Navy muffs a pitch that was ruled backwards, and the ball is subsequently loose. In the ensuing scrum, the call on the field is that the fumble was recovered in-bounds by Army. After the play went to review, it was determined that an Army player touched the ball while out of bounds. Because the status was a backwards pass, the ball is awarded to Navy at the spot where it went out of bounds. If it were a fumble, it would have been returned to the spot where the ball became loose.
