Navy has shown a lot of improvement in their annual series with the Irish. After going from 1964 to 2006 without a win in the series, the Mids have now won four times since 2006. 2019 could be another year of a Navy victory. However, this Notre Dame team is very strong. Playing in South Bend the odds are that the Irish will more likely prevail.
