Army West Point is off this weekend while Navy visits Houston on Friday and Air Force hosts Utah State on Saturday. Here are your week 13 Service Academy football predictions.
NAVY AT HOUSTON
This isn’t the usual Houston team that we’ve known the past few season. There’s a new coach and a less potent offense to deal with. Navy should be able to win this game as long as the Mids avoid turnovers and execute their option to perfection. A lot also depends on who is playing QB for Navy. This is a battle of two fairly evenly rated team but I think even on the road, Navy finds a way to win this one.
Prediction: Navy 31, Houston 27.
Friday’s game kicks off at Noon ET and can be seen on ESPN.
UTAH STATE AT AIR FORCE
Utah is 3-0 in road games in Mountain West Conference action. However, I think Air Force takes care of business at home on Senior Day for the Falcons. Plus, the Falcons are supposed to have quarterback Arion Worthman back playing from injury.
Prediction: Air Force 38, Utah State 31.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 8:15 p.m. MT and can be seen on ESPN2.
Army has a bye game this weekend. The Black Knights will play Navy on December 9 in Philadelphia.
