Temple vs Navy Game Preview

Why Temple Will Win

The defense is fantastic at coming up with third down stops.

No, the run D isn’t amazing, but overall the Owls have a problem against teams that can throw enough to make open things up for everything else. Teams that weren’t able to throw – Rutgers, UMass, Lafayette – also didn’t run for a score.

Why Navy Will Win

It’s not like the Temple offense will put up a ton of points and big plays.

The Owl offense has managed to get past 16 points just twice so far – it was the only two wins against Lafayette and UMass. Navy might not have an amazing defense, but it mostly has issues against teams that can throw well and that’s not Temple.

What’s Going To Happen

Can Temple’s defense rise up enough to force Navy into several third and longs?

For some stretches, yes, but the Midshipmen will go on just enough good scoring marches to get up early, and they’ll take the air out of the ball in the second half.

Temple won’t be able to take advantage of its chances to take over the game – there won’t be enough of them.
