NAVY over Air Force by 13
This military rivalry finds two teams that love to run the ball: Navy leads the nation with 400 RYPG while the AFA is in the Top 10 with 274.8 RYPG. While double-digits look tempting, the fact of the matter is Navy is 28-7 SU in its last 35 games, going 19-12-2 ATS in those contests, and will be looking to avenge a 28-14 loss in Colorado Springs last season. In addition, the Flyboys have been dominated in this series despite last year’s win, going 4-10 SU and 3-11 ATS over the last 14 years, including 0-6 SUATS when coming off a loss. On the Navy side of the coin, QB Zach Abey continues to impress, and the Midshipmen will control the football – that is just what they do (HC Niumatalolo has the nation’s No. 1 team in Time of Possession offense). The Middies are also 5-1 ATS off 4 straight wins-exact when facing a foe off a loss and they desperately want that Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy back from Air Force.
