Comments

Tulsa is a team that’s played a pretty tough schedule and has competed well. Playing at Tulsa should make this interesting. Navy has to not still be thinking about their big win over Air Force. This one should come down to whether or not the Golden Hurricanes can stop the option. Navy wins this one but it probably won’t be a blowout.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Navy 31, Tulsa 21

Saturday’s game kicks off at 7:30 ET. Watch on the ESPNU Network.
