Expect Plenty Of Offense When UCF, Navy Meet

Navy and UCF face off this Saturday in a matchup of explosive offenses. Both Navy and UCF are in the top 20 in the nation in yards and points per game – with the Knights averaging a nation-high 50.6 ppg. Despite the high-powered offenses, both Navy and UCF have been having issues going OVER the closing total this season with the two programs combining for a 5-6 O/U record.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of Navy’s last 9 games at home.
  • Navy is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of UCF’s last 10 games against the AAC.

Navy suffered its first loss of the season last week in a 30-27 defeat at the hands of Memphis, thanks to the Midshipmen’s five turnovers. QB Zach Abey struggled mightily with ball control, throwing two picks and losing three fumbles against Memphis. Of course, Abey still found the end zone on three occasions but if he can’t hold on to the ball, then Navy will quickly find itself falling out of games.

UCF QB McKenzie Milton enters this contest red-hot with the sophomore throwing for 698 yards with seven touchdowns and no turnovers the past two games. Though the offense is humming and the team is undefeated, UCF has some holes to fix on defense. The Knights allowed a couple of explosive plays against a pitiful East Carolina squad last week.
