A pair of option teams meet on Saturday night as Navy and Tulane get set for battle.
Both teams run very similar style offenses as they like to use the triple option and really attack the opposing defenses front.
Navy has started off the 2016 season with a lot of encourage after losing a lot of starting personnel on their offense this past season.
The Midshipmen have averaged 40 points through their first 2 games and come in off an impressive 28-24 win over UConn on Saturday.
Navy used a goal line stand late to secure the deal as the back and forth affair went the Midshipmen’s way.
They’ll look to find the offensive form they’ve have the past 2 games here in this one, as Tulane really shut them down in last year’s meeting.
Navy was held on the ground and was forced into 3 turnovers as Tulane rolled over them 31-14.
Expect Navy to get Chris High a lot of touches here, as he has rushed for 212 yards this season with 3 touchdowns.
Tulane Green Wave
With a few games under their belt with the new offensive style, the Green Wave will try to start off their AAC season on a high note.
Tulane looked exceptionally well last week offensively as they had just 6 pass attempts in a 66-21 win over Georgia Southern.
The Green Wave accumulated 437 rush yards as they completely dominated the line of scrimmage.
Tulane’s defense was also exceptional forcing 3 turnovers. They’ll have their hands full here with the Midshipmen run attack as they cannot allow the offensive line for Navy to push them back.
This is a big game for head coach Willie Fritz. In his first game as Tulane head coach, it was evident his triple option offense was a hard one to grasp as the Green Wave had just 3 points in a loss.
After last week and the success they had, it will be interesting to see which offensive team we get, the Week 1 or Week 2 one.
