What’s Going To Happen
Both are bowl eligible, and both exited the conference title stage a while ago. But now they’re fighting for a better bowl position, even though they’ll go wherever the best geographical matchups are.
Navy is coming off a good fight against Notre Dame, but it was another loss. The Midshipmen lost four of their last five games after winning five straight to start the season.
They still have the showdown with Army to go, but beating Houston would be a nice win after the tough stretch.
The Cougars are good enough to have handed South Florida its only loss, and weird enough to get blown out by Tulsa and lose last week to Tulane. But it all comes down to this – can they slow down the run?
Yeah – they’re fantastic at it, holding USF to just 137 yards and only allowing more than 200 yards once.
The linebackers are smart and tough, Ed Oliver and the defensive front can hold their own, and they’ll all keep the Navy option attack from blowing up.
They already got their training last week against Tulane’s option. It was a loss, but the Cougars will pull off a fight at home.
