Pat’s Thoughts:

Navy -10 at Hawaii

I am a huge fan of Navy football.  They are always out-manned, but they play smart football and always have a chip on their shoulder.  They are my type of team.

This Navy team will be special.  They completely changed their strength and conditioning program before their bowl game. The early returns in the bowl game was impressive as they annihilated UVA.  The word from camp is the strength program has made a profound impact on the team, and this may be the best Navy team in years.

Hawaii is definitely improved, as everyone saw last weekend.  However, after that performance the line went from 15 to 10.  The public is being influenced by what they have seen recently, and I think this is an overreaction.

This is such a good matchup for Navy.  Hawaii will try to run the run and shoot and try to play fast.  Navy will play super slow and completely take the young offense out of their game.  Hawaii will tire out, and then the score will get ugly.  And let’s not forget that the weather will probably play into Navy’s favor as well.  Middies roll in this one.

 

Navy +11.5 vs Houston

Houston is in a tough travel stretch.  They went to Greenville, NC last week to play ECU.  Returned to Houston, and now are traveling to Annapolis to play Navy.

Navy has underperformed this year, and much of that can be attributed to having the wrong QB under center.  They changed that up last week, and lost a hard fought game to a very good Temple team.  Don’t forget they have been capable at home – beating a good Memphis team straight up a few weeks ago.

Navy may lose at home, but they always cover.  I see them playing tough in this one, and they may even escape with a victory.
