We have reached week three of the college football season and in this game it’s an AAC showdown. The East Carolina Pirates make the trip to Annapolis to take on the Navy Midshipmen.
The last time these two teams played was in 2016 when Navy won 66-31.
East Carolina Pirates
The East Carolina Pirates season started with a blowout loss, and in the last game they won in blowout fashion.
Against NC State the offense struggled scoring only six points and that wasn’t enough to keep it close, and they failed to cover the spread.
In their last game against Gardner-Webb the offense was really good putting up 48 points, and that led to a win and cover of the spread.
At quarterback the Pirates are led by Holton Ahlers who has thrown for 363 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.
In this game they need to play a complete game, and on defense they need to find a way to slow down the run. If they can stop the run on defense, they will have a shot to pull the upset.
On the other side of this matchup is the Navy Midshipmen who played their first game and then had a week off last weekend.
In the first game they took on Holy Cross and it was an easy game on the schedule. They were elite on both sides of the ball and that led to a 45-7 victory.
The Navy run the triple-option and in the first gmae they were strong rushing for 428 yards on the ground. They also passed for 103 yards.
On the defensive side they only gave up seven points and a big reason was the way they slowed down the run giving up only 65 yards on the ground.
In this game they need to have a complete game, but the defense is going to have to be a bigger test and they need to be better.

I don’t love this game, because I don’t know how good Navy really is because Holy Cross is not much of a test at all.
