Challenges for Navy

Navy is stuck in a miserable four-game losing streak. No relief is in sight as next the Mids must battle a very strong Notre Dame team. Last year Navy gave the Irish all it could handle in South Bend. There’s no reason the Mids can’t repeat that feat in sunny San Diego. Notre Dame is a team subject to sleep walking through games. Look at their close wins over Pitt and Vandy. If their option game is working the Mids have a chance.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 8 pm ET and can be seen on CBS.
