Comments

What in the world has happened to Navy? You take one season to do no contact practices and now the program is practically destroyed. It doesn’t look good for Navy against Houston. This isn’t the high-powered Houston offense of a few years ago but they are sound. Let’s hope Navy can at least show some improvement after the bye week.

AcademyWars.com Prediction

Houston 38, Navy 13

Saturday’s game kicks off at 7:00 ET. You can watch this college football game on ESPNU.
