Grebe kicks Navy to 17-16 Poinsettia Bowl win
SAN DIEGO, CA - Austin Grebe kicked a 24-yard field goal with 1 minute, 27 seconds left and Navy beat San Diego State 17-16 in the sloppy Poinsettia Bowl on Tuesday night after Donny Hageman was wide right on a 34-yard field goal attempt with 20 seconds left.
Hageman had made his first three field goal attempts for the Aztecs.
The winning drive was set up when Donnel Pumphrey, who earlier set San Diego State's single-season rushing record, fumbled at midfield.
Fullback Chris Swain converted on fourth-and-1 and Ryan Williams-Jenkins took a pitch and ran 28 yards to help set up the game-winner by Grebe.
Pumphrey gained 112 yards on 21 carries to set SDSU's single-season rushing record with 1,867 yards. The old record was 1,842 yards by George Jones in 1995.
Navy (8-5) lost four fumbles. SDSU (7-6) had three turnovers.
