This week 1 matchup sees the Midshipmen squaring off against the Owls in Lane Kiffin’s debut as the new head coach.
Navy will look to get the season off with a strong start and reach double digits wins in 2017.
The triple option offense is always hard to defend. Having an entire training camp to prepare for it still won’t slow the Midshipmen down.
Returning starter at fullback Chris High should have a chance to top 1,000 yards this season.
The big question on offense will be at quarterback, as Zach Abey had two starts last year but struggled, throwing 1 touchdown and not doing much on the ground.
If he can get off to a strong start he should be able to put up big numbers against the Owls.
The Navy defense will have to stop the big playmakers on the FAU offense, led by star QB De’Andre Johnson. I don’t expect FAU to put up 40, but it should be a back and forth contest for 3 quarters.
Florida Atlantic Owls
The offense begins with the playmaker at QB De’Andre Johnson. He is just as much of a threat on the ground as he is throwing the ball, and brings a new dimension to the Owls offense.
Look for him to throw for 225 and run for 85 in this one.
Running back Devin Singletary topped the 1,000 yard mark last season, and should be an explosive threat under Lane Kiffin and Kendall Briles.
While the passing numbers should go up for the Owls, I still expect Singletary to improve on his numbers and easily get 100 yards and 2 scores in this one.
The Owls defense is fast and athletic, but they will struggle slowing down the Midshipmen option offense.
If Navy doesn’t rush for over 250 yards it should be seen as a successful day for FAU.
