Challenges for Navy
Navy’s played some pretty good football teams so far in the 2020 season. This Tulsa, the team whose school has the smallest enrollment in the FBS, could be the best team in the American Conference. The Golden Hurricane is currently the No. 22 team in both polls and is 5-0 in the AAC. The one loss that Tulsa has was a 16-7 setback at No. 11 Oklahoma State. Tulsa is getting it done by having a balanced offensive attack and with a solid defense. Tulsa is No. 1 in the league in third-down conversion defense, holding opponents to just 31.9 successful conversions. Offensively they gain over 400 yards a contest with 265 ypg coming from passing and 165 ypg coming from running the ball. This is a tough matchup for Navy but if Mids can just be a little better in all three phases of the game, they have a shot at winning.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 3:30 PM ET. Watch on the ESPN2 network.
