The Navy Midshipmen and Tulsa Golden Hurricane meet Saturday in college football action at Chapman Stadium.
The Navy Midshipmen look for their first road win to build on their 4-1 start to the season. The Navy Midshipmen haven’t won a road game since September of 2017. Malcolm Perry is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 480 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. The Navy Midshipmen have eight touchdown passes dating back to last season. CJ Williams and Mychal Cooper have combined for 317 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Ryan Mitchell has three receptions. The Navy Midshipmen ground game is averaging 312 yards per contest, and Perry leads the way with 386 yards and nine touchdowns. Defensively, Navy is allowing 19.3 points and 277 yards per game. Diego Fagot leads the Navy Midshipmen with 29 tackles, Jacob Springer has two sacks and Kevin Brennan has one interception.
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane need a feel good win here to get back to a .500 record. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have split their last eight home games. Zach Smith is completing 58 percent of his passes for 1,364 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions. Smith has six touchdown passes in his last two games. Keylon Stokes and Sam Crawford Jr. have combined for 773 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Keenen Johnson has 17 receptions. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane ground game is averaging 115.6 yards per contest, and Shamari Brooks leads the way with 409 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Tulsa is allowing 29.6 points and 390.8 yards per game. Cooper Edmiston leads the Tulsa Golden Hurricane with 44 tackles, Trevis Gipson has four sacks and Reggie Robinson II has one interception.
The Midshipmen are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games, 1-6-2 ATS in their last 9 games in October and 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Golden Hurricane are 14-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS win. The road team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The under is 19-7 in Golden Hurricane last 26 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Midshipmen last 6 vs. a team with a losing record.
The Navy Midshipmen have split their last 10 games ATS as a road underdog. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have failed to cover five of their last seven games as a home favorite. Navy has won the last four meetings against Tulsa and has had no problem moving the ball in those games. However, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane just went toe-to-toe with SMU on the road last week, and while it resulted in a loss, it was a promising enough performance to carryover positive vibes to this contest. Tulsa has played improved football the last couple of weeks and should be up for this game on national TV under the lights. Give me the Golden Hurricane in this toss-up.
