Challenges for Navy

This team is similar to Houston and SMU in that it can sling the ball around. The Tigers put up almost 350 yards per game passing and over 500 yards total. The two teams are about even defensively. Navy’s challenge is to be able to slow down the Tigers in order to avoid having to start throwing the ball themselves. Navy is much better off running the ball.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 7:00 PM ET. You can watch this football game on the CBS Sports Network.
