Navy News & Notes

The Midshipmen are clicking on offense with 42.2 points per game over their current five-game winning streak.

What has made Navy so dangerous this season is the threat of a passing attack – quarterback Malcolm Perry has thrown 53 passes this year, more than double the 25 he attempted through his first three seasons with the program. Navy still runs the ball the majority of the time, but the threat of a well-timed pass play is keeping opposing defenses honest.

Despite going just 1-7 SU in their last eight games against Notre Dame, the Midshipmen have played the Fighting Irish tough with a 5-1 ATS record in the last six games of this head-to-head series. Navy enters this game with a 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS record so far this season.

Notre Dame News & Notes

The Fighting Irish snapped an 0-3 ATS slump with a 38-7 road win as 7-point favorites against the Duke Blue Devils last Saturday. Prior to that game, Notre Dame had been blown out by a score of 45-14 on the road against Michigan in Week 9 and had narrowly escaped at home with a 21-20 win as 17.5-point favorites against Virginia Tech in Week 10. Quarterback Ian Book rushed for a career-high 139 yards in the win over Duke.

Notre Dame is 9-1 SU in its last 10 games against AAC opponents but just 2-8 ATS in those 10 games. The Fighting Irish are 2-0 SU and 0-2 ATS in their last two games at home.
