CHALLENGES

This game features a battle between two beat up football teams. Navy’s bye week couldn’t have come at a better time. Zach Abey suffered a concussion against Central Florida but is listed as “probable” for Thursday night. Temple also had a bye week after falling to Army 31-28 in their last game but, as you can see above, the Owls are an injury-depleted squad. That includes their starting quarterback who is not going to start against Navy. Really though, this is not the Temple of the past few years. Navy could probably beat this Owls squad handily even if Temple had no injuries.

Thursday’s game kicks off at 8 p.m. ET and can be seen on ESPN.
