Navy +7 -120 <1 unit>
Alright, we have a Navy team off a national TV BLOWOUT loss, 55-3. What an embarrassment. These guys couldn't tackle, could not get anything going, and now look to avenge the most lopsided loss in Niumatalolo’s tenure. How are they going to bounce back from that? Lets dig in!
Before that game with BYU, Navy held 0 contact practices, well that showed what happened in their opener. Since that loss, they basically had a bye week to go full contact practices and gave the coaching staff extra time to get this team prepared. We are not sure if this will give them enough time to get fully ready, but these guys are hitting each other and getting excited for this Tulane game.
Tulane made a comeback in the 4th Q and won 27-24. They were losing 24-6 and had to squeeze out the win, and now need to prepare for a hungry, pissed off triple option team. Tulanes strength is on the D line and got to South Alabama for 5 sacks. Tulane was still gashed for 300 yards passing, but Navy won't do that here. Its a totally different unit, and they will go into this game thinking that they will truck over Navy after BYU did, I wouldn't say so, its always tough to prepare for a triple option.
We believe Navy will be very hungry here, and they held open tryouts for their QB. They did not announce their QB for this game, and Perry has transitioned out of Navy on Sep 11. We dont worry much about that since its a triple option team, they dont plan on throwing. The last 5 years, the winning margins are Navy by 3, 2, 7, 17 and Tulane by 1. These are always close games when they face off, and those points are inflated due to what happened to start the year. This will come down to 3-6, and the points will matter. Lets go! Good luck.🍀
