East Carolina has had some pretty good teams over the past decade or so. Last season they finished 4-8 and didn’t win an American conference game (0-7). Looking over their depth chart they look really young. I see a lot of freshmen and sophomores. They have five senior or graduate starters listed as starters. That doesn’t include specialist. I think Navy is going to wake up on Sunday sitting at 3-2.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Navy 35, East Carolina 21

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