Challenges for Navy
Coming off an emotional win over Memphis this could be a trap game for the Mids. Probably not though. Navy leads the all-time series 14-6-1, but it was Lehigh who won the most recent meeting 24-9 back in 1987.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 3:30 pm ET and can be seen on the CBS Sports Network.
