I can’t necessarily put my finger on it but I like these matchups between service academies, especially these two which seem more evenly matched.
Look for lots of running when Air Force and Navy get together. These are two options teams that only throw when they have to.
There is definitely a lot of familiarity here. Air Force won last year but Navy has covered in 8 of the last 10.
After representing themselves well against Michigan State the Falcons had a week off before their annual tilt against Navy.
No surprise that they enter the contest with the second best running attack, averaging 367ypg on the ground.
I am still bullish on Air Force this season. I think they are going to play good defense most of the time and are gritty – I know Navy is too. They are definitely going to be a factor inn the Mountain West this season
The Falcons are 3-0 ATS this season and I think they have a great chance to cover and even upset this weekend.
The Middies are doing what they usually do. Running the ball down opponent’s throat and beating schools that are supposed to have football talent better than Navy’s. It is why I always like them and root for them I must admit.
Here is a fun stat, the Middies have only thrown 13 passes all season long. QB Keenan Reynolds is still one of the most important QB in the nations but it is about directing their option attack and scoring a million touchdowns.
There is no doubt that these teams are familiar with each other and familiar with option attacks so the key will be who can execute better on Saturday. Both of these teams are usually very good in this area so I expect that this will be a very closely contested game.
Things tend to be pretty intense in these battles even though no playoff spots will be on the line. if you can you probably want to check it out.
