These two teams are pretty even. The difference in this game is usually homefield advantage. In the last six years the home team has won. This one could go either way but I’ll go with Navy since the trend has been for the home team to win. I predict Navy to win in a squeaker but if Malcolm Perry isn’t playing or is obviously not game ready, Air Force should win.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Navy 28, Air Force 27

Saturday’s game kicks off at 3:00 ET. Watch on the CBS Sports Network.
