Notre Dame vs Navy Game Preview

Why Navy Will Win

The defense is playing well enough to keep this interesting.

The offense isn’t running and controlling games like it might want to, but the run defense was great against Cincinnati, it’s been able to hold up enough to stay in games, and the whole formula might slow things down.

Why Notre Dame Will Win

Everyone is throwing on the Midshipmen.

Notre Dame isn’t throwing well enough to bomb away, but it doesn’t need to be Tennessee to open things up. As long as Drew Pyne is able to hit half of his passes and connect on the third down shots, the running game will do the rest.

The offense doesn’t have to take any chances. Just keep moving, and the defense that held Clemson to 90 yards on the ground and hasn’t allowed more than 100 rushing yards five of the last seven games should take care of the rest.

What’s Going To Happen

Navy is 1-5 when it doesn’t run for more than 215 yards, and 2-1 when it does. Marshall is the only team to get past 215 against the Irish – Navy won’t get there.

The style of the Midshipmen will keep this from getting too out of hand, but Notre Dame will be in control from the late first quarter on.
