You have to not feel good about this game. Temple is a well-coached team. They are kind of like Air Force last week, they have plenty of video from this season to watch on Navy. Meanwhile, the Mids have nothing on the Owls from this season. Owl QB Anthony Russo, who passed for 2,861 yds 2019, could be a big problem. Navy plays this one close but Temple prevails. Prediction

Temple 35, Navy 27

Saturday’s game kicks off at 6:00 PM ET. Watch on the CBS Sports Network.
