Temple easily won to improve to .500 on the year and 2-0 in the American conference. On the other hand, Navy was pretty much shut down as they only managed to put up seven points against Air Force.
The last meeting between these two teams took place in November of 2017. Temple ended up getting the win, beating the Midshipmen 34-26.
Temple cruised to a 49-6 win over conference opponent, East Carolina. Even though they are only 3-3 on the year, the 2-0 conference record gives them a chance to play for a conference title if they continue to beat American conference opponents. They will take a one week break from conference play to take on Navy on the road, looking for another win to push them over the .500 mark.
Temple had their best offensive performance of the year against East Carolina in their blowout win. They had 470 total yards in this game, which includes 173 yards on the ground and 297 yards through the air. They now are averaging 32.7 points per game and if they get off to an early start against Navy, they will come away with a big win.
The only real question mark for this Temple defense going into Annapolis is their rush defense. They allow an average of 165.7 rushing yards per game which is 75th in the country. Navy is known for running the ball pretty much every play, so this will be a huge test for the Temple defense. If Temple can force the Midshipmen to throw the ball they will easily win.
Navy was completely shut down in the Air Force game, totaling only 178 yards in the game. They had just 49 passing yards and were held to 129 rushing yards.
Navy clearly struggled to run the ball against Air Force. For a team that averages 310.4 rushing yards per game, their performance on the ground must improve in this matchup. Temple is arguably a better team than Air Force, so something is going to need to change if the Midshipmen are going to come away with a win at home.
Defensively, Navy has not allowed less than 21 points in any game this year. They will likely be tested again and will need a solid outing to keep their team in the game. If Navy is going to win this game, they will need to force at least two turnovers to set up their offense with good field position.
