We have reached week eight of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s an AAC showdown when the Houston Cougars make the trip to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium to take on the Navy Midshipmen.
The home team has won the three games played between the two teams.
The Houston Cougars have had a really nice season so far this year with the only loss coming against the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
For the Cougars they are a good offensive team coming into this game averaging 48.7 points and over 550 yards per game.
They use a balanced attack through the air and on the ground and the balance is what keeps defense’s so off balance.
The Cougars are led by D’Eriq King at quarterback who has been slinging it all over the field. He has thrown for 1571 yards, 20 touchdowns and three interceptions.
To win this game the offense needs to sling it all around again. If they can run up the score they should have no issue in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Navy Midshipmen who have had problems with the offense coming into this game and it has led to struggles.
Over the last two games they have scored a total of 24 points, and although the defense has played decent, that offensive production isn’t going to get it done.
The Midshipmen run the option like the other academy schools and come into this game averaging 303.7 yards per game on the ground.
They pass less than the other military schools though and are averaging less than 70 yards per game through the air.
In this game it’s going to come down to the defense and how well they play. They need to make it a grind it out type of game.
