The Navy Midshipmen look to continue a strong finish to their season and win in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl against an Arizona State team that handled a tough Pac-12 schedule well.
Navy already made their season by toppling Army with a game-winning drive led by true freshman quarterback Keenan Reynolds. Reynolds took over quarterback duties midway through the team's game against Air Force and completed all three of his passes while running for a touchdown in a come-from-behind win for Navy. The Mids would go on to win seven of their last eight with Reynolds at the helm, bouncing back from a 1-3 start to go bowling.
Arizona State also closed their season well, bouncing back from four straight losses to crush Washington State, 46-7 and beat their rivals -- then No. 24 -- Arizona, in a 41-34 shootout. The Sun Devils might be a tough test for Navy, who went 1-2 against major conference teams, and posted a 31-30 win over a dismal Indiana squad.
