What’s Going To Happen
It’s not the American Athletic championship like it was to close out last year, with Temple trying to desperately cling on to its season and its bowl hopes, while Navy needs to keep winning to stay alive in the West Division.
The big problem – Temple is a big bag of whatever against the run. When it faced Army and its option offense, it allowed 248 rushing yards and three scores – and lost.
The linebackers aren’t the killers that last year’s team had, and while the front can get behind the line, it hasn’t mattered enough. With an offense that doesn’t have enough pop, Navy and the nation’s best ground game have to dominate from the start.
QB Zach Abey is expected back after suffering a concussion, but he’s not going to have to do it alone.
The Navy defensive front will come up with stops after hanging out in the Owl backfield, Abey will keep the offense moving as it owns the time of possession, and even one or two empty Temple trips will turn out to matter.
