This will be probably Navy’s toughest opponent so far this season. Maye Air Force is a little better than Houston. Houston has a very experienced group of 2-deep starters. They’ve got a quarterback that is a pinpoint passer averaging over 300 yards passing a game. Their defense is very strong against the run. They must have some kind of familiarity with the option since they played Navy five years in a row. Navy will give the Cougars a fight but Houston probably wins.
Houston 34, Navy 27
Saturday’s game kicks off at 3:30 PM ET. Watch on the CBSSN Network.
