The Navy Midshipmen head down to Tulsa, Oklahoma to put their undefeated streak on the line as they take on the 1-3 Tulsa Golden Hurricanes.
As per usual, the navy Midshipmen are excelling on the offensive side of the ball. Particularly, in the running game as they come into this week as the second best running team in the nation.
Despite only throwing for 98 yards per game, overall, Navy is a top 25 offensive attack in the nation.
Typically, Navy isn’t usually the best on defense, but so far this year they have been good enough.
While their defensive numbers due get skewed to the fact that they aren’t on the side of the ball most of them time because they eat up time with their rushing attack, their defense has been solid.
Navy has been able to limit the damage opponents due and get them off the field on third down.
Also, the good news for Navy is the fact that they are facing a team that runs the ball. Navy is fairly solid at this aspect on the defensive side.
They were able to hold FAU to 40 yards rushing. A team, in which, averages well over 200 yards a game on the ground. Tulne is a team that averages 244 yards on the ground, and well, technically, Navy held them below that average.
So, this is a match up that suits Navy if it’s going to be one way or the other.
Tulsa Golden Hurricanes
Tulsa, meanwhile, has struggled early on this season. Particularly, on the defensive side of the ball and that’s being nice. Quite frankly they are basically the worst defensive in college football, statistically.
Tulsa ranks 129th in total defense, 120th in passing (which will sky rocket in the right direction given that they are playing Navy), and they give up almost 300 yards a game on the ground which is 127th in the nation.
If you are looking at the positive side of things for Tulsa they only allowed 16 points last week against New Mexico, who runs a similar offense to Navy.
Tulsa was on the field for 42 minutes last week, so the fact that they only gave up 16 points is impressive. And while New Mexico gained 338 yards on the ground they only averaged 5.7 yards per rush.
So, all in all, it wasn’t bad performance last week by any stretch of the imagination.

There are going to be a lot of points in this one, but 70 points is a lot. The over very well hit, but I’m not comfortable in saying that’s the best bet in this one.
