Comments

This is almost a must win game for Navy. The Mids have hopefully corrected some of the deficiencies they had in the opening loss to BYU. Tulane is no juggernaut but the Green Wave has some good talent on both sides of the ball. Last Saturday that talent rallied the Green Wave from a 24-6 third-quarter deficit to beat South Alabama. It’s still early in the season and we don’t really know yet how good or bad teams. I think Navy should win this one in New Orleans.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Navy 27, Tulane 23

Saturday’s game kicks off at Noon ET. Watch on the ABC Network.
