Navy (1-1) vs. Lehigh (1-1) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
The Lehigh run defense hasn’t been bad so far, but it’s about to get hammered by a Midshipmen team that needs this game. It needs to keep it all going after slipping past Memphis, with road games at SMU and Air Force to follow.
The running game has been fine – it hasn’t been a killer.
It was solid against Hawaii in the loss, but the secondary couldn’t hold up. It sputtered against Memphis, but he dominated the time of possession and managed to hold on.
The Mountain Hawks haven’t been strong so far on third downs and they’ve only been able to keep the ball for just over 27 minutes a game. That’s a deadly combination against a Navy team that can bleed the clock to death.
Expect the Midshipmen to run for 300 yards, but it’ll be a big performance from the defense that takes center stage.
