The Tulane Green Wave will hold host to a service academy as they take on Navy in week 3 of the college football season.
Navy got demolished in their first game 55-3 almost two weeks ago as they played 12 days ago coming into Saturday. The triple-option didn’t get it done as the barely had any yards in the game.
The Midshipmen used two quarterbacks in the matchup with BYU because Perry Olson struggled to get a first down. The loss of Malcolm Perry has really thrown off the entire Navy offense as he accounted for more than half of their total yards last year by HIMSELF.
BYU got the best of the Midshipmen’s defensive strategy as they were going up and down the field at will. They surrendered over 580 yards from scrimmage in the game and that definitely needs to change if they want any shot at winning a game in 2020.
Tulane Green Wave
Tulane squeaked out a close one against South Alabama in their opener 27-24. The Jaguars had a 24-6 lead halfway through the third quarter before the Green Wave closed out the game with 21 unanswered points.
Keon Howard didn’t have the most impressive first game, but it will get better as the season goes on. Howard completed just 14 of 30 passes for 191 yards in the contest. He couldn’t find the endzone though as they punched it in with a running back each time in the red zone. A positive for Howard is that he didn’t turn the ball over in the game as that could’ve ruined their chance at the comeback.
The Green Wave features a heavy running attack as shown in week 2. They had over 200 yards on the ground and every single touchdown came from a running back. Redshirt Freshman Tyja Spears led the attack with 105 yards and touchdowns on the day.
Defensively, Tulane came out the gate slow allowing one of the worst teams in college football the last five years to take a 21-6 lead heading into halftime. It tightened up in the second-half though as they only allowed 7 points in the third and zero points in the fourth quarter. The defense recorded five-sacks which all came in the second half versus South Alabama.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick:
Navy showed us that it’s going to be a very down year for them as they are transitioning to a new quarterback. Malcolm Perry was literally their offense in 2019 and he is not going to be walking on to the field due to graduation, so it looks like Navy is going to have to tinker with some things, and it’s going to be more difficult with less practice time. Give me Tulane in a boat race as Navy won’t be able to keep up offensively.
