ANNAPOLIS, Md. San Jose Sharks Jerseys . -- Two of the most surprising teams in the American Athletic Conference meet Saturday in an unlikely duel for first place in the West Division.No. 24 Navy (4-1, 3-0) knocked off previously unbeaten and then-No. 6 Houston two weeks ago. Memphis (5-1, 2-0) announced itself as a contender by defeating Temple in its AAC opener on Oct. 6.After Saturdays matchup only one will remain unbeaten in league play.It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out how important this game is for both teams, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said. We both control our own destiny. Whoever wins is going to be in the drivers seat.The Midshipmen made their move with a 46-40 upset of Houston. They were unable to build momentum because their Oct. 13 game at East Carolina was postponed due to flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew.Memphis has gotten off to an equally impressive start behind a potent offense and a defense that leads the nation with 18 forced turnovers.Im really pleased with where we are at the midpoint of the season, said first-year coach Mike Norvell, whose squad is coming off a 24-14 victory at Tulane. We have put ourselves in position for this week to be a huge game.---Some other things to know about the second meeting between Navy and Memphis:VOLUNTEER NAVY: This game holds special meaning for Navy linebacker D.J. Palmore and safety Sean Williams because both hail from the greater Memphis region. Palmore is a native of Bartlett and played at Christian Brothers High in Memphis. Williams is from Cordova, which like Bartlett is a nearby suburb of Memphis. Palmore and Williams are among 17 players on the Navy roster from the state of Tennessee.TOUGH AT CRUNCH TIME: Navy has won its three conference games by a touchdown or less. The Midshipmen needed a last-second goal-line stand to edge Connecticut by four and a gutsy touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter to pull out a 21-14 victory at Tulane. Theyve been in a lot of close games and you can see the character of that football team, which is quite impressive, Norvell said. Memphis is one win away from becoming bowl eligible for the third straight season. Linebacker Genard Avery and cornerback Arthur Maulet both have two interceptions and a forced fumble.FAMILIAR FOE: Norvell, the youngest head coach in the Football Bowl Subdivision at age 35, spent the previous four seasons as offensive coordinator at Arizona State. He directed an attack that saw the Sun Devils score 62 points and roll up 648 yards on the Midshipmen in the 2012 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. Mike does a really nice job. We remember Mike from Arizona State, where he always had really potent offenses, Niumatalolo said.HOME SWEET HOME: This is the first time Memphis has played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Navy has a 13-game winning streak at the facility, which opened in 1959. The Midshipmen can set a school record for most consecutive victories at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium by beating the Tigers. Our stadium has become a pretty tough place to play, with the Brigade (of Midshipmen) and the fans, Niumatalolo said. Were going to need all the home-field advantage we can get in this game.TIME TO HEAL: Niumatalolo said the unexpected bye week was a blessing in disguise since Navy was bruised and battered following back-to-back physical affairs with Air Force and Houston. Starting fullback Chris High (hip), backup slotback Calvin Cass Jr. (concussion), No. 3 wide receiver Tyler Carmona (concussion) and starting cornerback Tyris Wooten (undisclosed) were all nursing injuries. Last week was used to mend a little bit, to get some rest, rehab and recover, Niumatalolo said. We had some guys that were pretty banged up, but theyll all be back.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Martin Jones Jersey .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. Joe Thornton Jersey . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. http://www.officialsharksnhlshop.com/evander-kane-jersey/ . Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. The omission of John Hastings from Australias one-day squad this week left the fast bowler understandably miffed, given that no bowler in the world has more ODI wickets in 2016 than his tally of 29. Hastings broke a finger during the Matador Cup last month but has declared himself fully recovered and is due to return for Victoria in the Sheffield Shield on Saturday.However, despite his outstanding one-day form for Australia this year, Hastings was overlooked when Australia on Wednesday named a 14-man squad for next months Chappell-Hadlee Trophy series against New Zealand. Instead, Australias attack will be led by Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, who were both rested from the recent series in South Africa, and Pat Cummins.Allrounders James Faulkner, Mitchell Marsh and the uncapped Hilton Cartwright also offer seam-bowling options for the three-game series. Hastings said interim chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns had called him to explain his omission and said that the return of Hazlewood and Starc, combined with the fact that Hastings had not played for a month, led to the decision.I was very disappointed - I was initially pretty shocked, to be honest, Hastings told reporters in Melbourne on Friday. I felt my performances over the last 12 months had probably stacked up and in my mind, Im 100% fit.I know I havent played a loot of cricket, but five and a half months of not playing cricket and then going over to Sri Lanka without a game, it didnt really stack up for me. Logan Couture Jersey. So yeah, I was very disappointed not to be in that side.Hastings picked up a career-best 6 for 45 against Sri Lanka in Dambulla in August, having embarked on that tour with no cricket behind him since the IPL in April. Australia play five ODIs at home against Pakistan in January before travelling to New Zealand for a return Chappell-Hadlee Series, and Hohns told Hastings he remained in the selectors thoughts.He [Hohns] just said I havent really been playing much and the big boys were back, so thats all I can take, Hastings said. For me, I dont really have a vessel to get back into that side. The Matador Cup is gone and my next white-ball game will be on Boxing Day, so for me, hopefully I get a game tomorrow in the Sheffield Shield, but other than that, its really all I can do.Ive taken the most one-day international wickets in the world this year, so obviously Im disappointed not to be there. But if they think those guys can do a better job, then thats fair enough, I can cop that. I just have to try to go back and prove people wrong again. ' ' '
