Challenges for Navy
Just when you were concerned about the Mids giving up almost 60 points to Hawaii, now Navy must host a very good Memphis squad that probably could have scored 100 points on Mercer if it had wanted. Add in the fact that the Mids must re-adjust to the Eastern time zone. Navy will probably be recovered by game time but we’ll never know the strain this traveling put on game preparations. This will likely be another tough week for Navy football.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 3:30 pm ET and can be seen on the CBS Sports Network.
