Challenges for Navy

This East Carolina team has a decent offense and a horrid defense that yields over 500 yards a game on average. Two-thirds of those yards come through the air. Navy doesn’t need to become pass-happy but they should pass enough to keep the Pirates from focusing on the run. If you are Navy, after the rough start, wouldn’t it be neat to wake up on Sunday sitting at 3-2? The Mids challenge is to get a winning streak going.

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