This AAC contest has the Bearcats on the road against the Midshipmen.
Cincinnati is coming in after a win over Miami (OH), while Navy survived a scare against Tulane.
Hayden Moore had an up and down performance against the Red Hawks. He was just 24-43 passing, for 222 yards to go along with a score and two interceptions.
I don’t expect him to get many opportunities to throw the ball against the Navy defense, but he should still struggle to move the offense down the field.
Gerrid Doaks and Michael Warren had a split of the carries, and combined for 26 carries and 122 yards on the ground. Expect this one two punch to get a lot of touches to keep the Navy offense off the field, and both should have good games.
Kahlil Lewis had 7 catches for 83 yards and a score, and will be the main deep threat for the Bearcats offense. He should find the end zone for the second straight game.
With the offense sputtering most of the game, the defense stepped up and killed a potential game winning drive by forcing an interception towards the end of the game.
The Navy offense is never easy to prepare for, and I don’t think the Bearcats front seven will be able to do much to slow them down.
Inserting a new QB into the triple option offense is always tricky, but it seems like Zach Abey will fit into the role seamlessly.
After running for over 200 yards in the win against FAU, he followed it up with another 100 yard performance against Tulane.
Abey and the Midshipmen face another tough task against the Bearcats defense, but he should still put up good numbers.
Chris High has been the feature back but hasn’t had the breakout performance we have all been expecting so far this season. He hasn’t rushed for over 65 yards in either game, but has gotten a fair amount of touches (15 per game).
He should be able to find holes against the Cincy front seven, and I expect him to score a touchdown and run for over 100 yards.
The Navy defense was excellent against the Green Wave, as they held the offense to under 75 yards passing. Facing a struggling QB will give them plenty of opportunities, and I expect the defense to put up great numbers again.
