Challenges for Navy

This game is probably the Midshipmen’s toughest test of the season. Memphis is a powerful team both offensively and defensively. Quarterback Brady White has completed over 70% of his passes for 718 yards and five TDs with just two interceptions. Running back Kenneth Gainwell is averaging over 102 yards rushing per game with four TDs. Navy can win this game but it won’t be easy.
