Comments

This game has become somewhat of a rivalry. I don’t know if it’s because there have been so many high scoring games between these two or maybe the fact that Navy recruits Tennessee hard could be the reason. I look at this game kind of like the Houston and SMU games. I think this Navy team will have a hard time keeping up with Memphis offensively. I look for the Tigers to prevail by a couple of scores.

Prediction

Memphis 34, Navy 24

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