UH, Navy begin talks to extend football series


They met for the second time last season and hope to set up a future home-and-home series. It is "all very tentative" said a Navy spokesman who said the Midshipmen, barring changes, might not have an opening until 2017.

UH might not have a nonconference opening until 2013, depending upon when the Western Athletic Conference fills the vacancies left by Boise State’s departure from the conference in 2011.

UH is already scheduled to play Army this season at West Point as well as in 2013 (Aloha Stadium), 2018 (West Point) and 2019 (Aloha Stadium).

Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo (pictured), a Radford High graduate and former UH quarterback and assistant coach, said he is in favor of extending the series. "I’d love to get them to come to the East Coast," Niumatalolo said.

UH beat Navy 24-17 at Aloha Stadium in November. The Warriors are 2-0 against Navy with both games held in Honolulu.
