Two teams from the AAC will be squaring off when the Cincinnati Bearcats visit the Navy Midshipmen.
Cincinnati is coming off a win and Navy is coming off a loss in week 7.
It started off with the Bearcats as 26.5 point favorites and that number has gone up to 27.5. The total has stayed right around 49.
The #2 team in the nation has played very well this year. We knew this team would be good, but I am not sure anyone had them being second in the country. This has been a very impressive team so far.
The Bearcats crushed UCF last Saturday by a score of 56-21. They easily covered the large spread in that game.
Desmond Ridder continues to play at a very high level. On Saturday, he was 13/23 for 140 yards and 1 touchdown. I look for him to have a very good game against the Midshipmen.
Saturday was all about the running game. Jerome Ford ran the ball 20 times for 189 yards. I look for him to get a lot of touches on Saturday.
The defense has also been quite good for this team. The unit has allowed 24 points in their last 2 games. I do not expect them to allow many points against Navy.
The Midshipmen have not had a great season so far, but I cannot say I am surprised. This is a team that did not have very high expectations for the 2021 season.
This is a squad that is coming off of a loss to the Memphis Tigers by a score of 35-17. They were never really in that game.
In the loss to Memphis, there was not a lot of passing that took place. Quarterback Tai Lavatai was 3/4 for 27 yards. This makes sense because this is not a team that relies heavily on the passing game.
Isaac Ruoss ran the ball 18 times for 75 yards. He was the leading rusher on the day. I am sure they will look to run the ball a lot against the Bearcats. Whether they are successful or not is another question.
The defense, which has been good in past years, has not been great this year. I do not expect them to have much success against that explosive Cincy offense. It would really shock me if this unit can slow them down.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
I like the Bearcats to cover the spread of 27.5 here.
I do not see this game being close at all. I feel it will be a laugher in no time.
4* Free Week 8 NCAA Betting Pick: Cincinnati ATS
Yes, 27.5 is a high number to lay here, but I feel good about it. I am going to get it now before it jumps any higher.
I look for the Bearcats to keep rolling here. I do not see their offense slowing down in this game. They should be able to feast on a weak defense for the Midshipmen. On the other hand, I have no idea how this Navy team will score given how stout the defense for Cincy is.
Give me the Bearcats laying the points here.
