 ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - First-year Florida Atlantic coach Carl Pelinia views Navy's football program as a model for what he wants to build in Boca Raton.
Pelini says, ``Navy embodies so much of what I believe in. The discipline, structure, character, leadership - those all the type of traits I am trying to instill in our players.''
Pelini and the Owls will get a firsthand look at the Midshipmen on Saturday when the teams meet for the first time.
Navy (5-3) has won four in a row and can become bowl eligible with a win over Florida Atlantic (2-6).
