Tulsa has had some explosive offenses over the past few years and this season’s team is no different with over 150 points combined scored in the first four games. Navy will need its defense to be on its toes to win this game. The secondary must provide solid coverage while the defensive line gets some pressure on President. The good news is the Navy offense should thrive against this thin Golden Hurricane defense. Look for a high-scoring game with Navy pulling out another victory.Follow GoMids.com on social media:
