In NCAA Football Week 5, we will see Navy Midshipmen at Memphis Tigers.
The Navy Midshipmen started the season with two dominating wins but they were against much smaller sides. They managed to beat Holy Cross 45-7, even though their QB tossed just 6 passes and they also beat East Carolina in a 5-pass performance by Malcolm Perry. The Midshipmen are first in the country in rushing yards, averaging 371.5 per game. They do not need to throw the football at all and they have just 128 passing yards which is good for 125th place.
The Memphis Tigers are 3-0 and they had a great win over Mississippi in week 1. Since then, they have faced much weaker opposition such as Southern Jaguars and South Alabama. The Tigers certainly have better players than Navy and they also have a passing game. Brady White is completing 72% of his throws for 718 passing yards and 5 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
The Navy’s defense has not been tested so far and I’m not sure how much they can defend. Having in mind that a very weak school managed to score 24 on Memphis, I believe that the Navy has enough to cover the spread.
