Challenges for Navy

2018 is turning into a nightmare season for the Mids. Navy has to build some momentum somehow because it’s not going to get any easier. Undefeated Notre Dame, Cincinnati and UCF come up after Houston. That’s a 24-1 combined record for Navy’s next four opponents including Houston. Three of those four will be away from Annapolis. The Mids just have to focus on taking one play at a time and giving 110 percent for that six seconds or so.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on the CBS Sports Network.
