CHALLENGES

This is a game Navy can win but they can’t sleep on the Falcons. Air Force may be 1-3 but two of those losses have come to ranked teams, on the road. This game will likely be close as both teams are very familiar with each other. The winner gets a leg up in the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy race, the loser gets to spend a year knowing they lost to a rival Service Academy. Since the game is in Annapolis the undefeated Mids are the favorite but it could go either way.
