Dominique Davis set two NCAA records for consecutive completions, connecting on all 26 of his first-half throws to extend his streak to 36 straight over two games, helping East Carolina squeeze past host Navy, 38-35. Davis, who played his first two seasons at Boston College, broke the single-game record of 23 straight completions, set in 1998 by Tee Martin of Tennessee and tied in 2004 by Aaron Rodgers of California. Davis completed his final 10 passes against Memphis last week, so his stunning first half against Navy gave him 36 in a row - breaking the NCAA mark of 26 set by Rodgers in 2004. Davis’s streak ended on his first attempt in the third quarter. He finished 40 for 45 for 372 yards.
