The Navy Shipmen are looking to make it three straight wins as they head into SMU to take on the Mustangs.
As for the SMU Mustangs, they haven’t gotten any breaks this year and are still looking for their first win.
The Navy Midshipmen have really turned it around ever since their opener against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. After they lost by the final score of 59-41, they regrouped and have put out a way better performance on both sides of the ball the past two games.
In their first win of the season, Navy was able to attack with the running game as they totaled over 200 rushing yards in the win against the Memphis Tigers.
In the second win of the season the Midshipmen continued to use the same ground game to capture another win against the Lehigh Mountain Hawks.
They would end the game with a total of over 300 plus rushing yards.
So why do all of these rushing stats have to do anything with this matchup on Saturday?
SMU are one of the worst teams to stop the run as they have yet to find an answer to their problem as they head into the fourth game of the season.
Expect Navy to have a heavy set formation all game long as they roll with the running game.
As stated above, the Mustangs have not had any luck this season as they have already faced two ranked teams so far this year. They were unable to slow down the TCU Horned Frogs, neither the Michigan Wolverines.
The Mustangs also have a quarterback problem on their hand as the past two games they have been changing the main caller. They have yet to have a steady call on who will be the starting quarterback which has also messed up the timings with the wide receivers.
All Navy has to do on Saturday is cause more problems with the pass rush and this will be another walk in the park for them.
The only way the Mustangs can get even close to the Midshipmen will be to stop their powerful running game. However the Mustangs currently average giving up at least 150 yards per game on the ground.
