The Navy Midshipmen started out this season going 2-0 against below average competition. Their last four game have come against much stronger opposition and the Midshipmen have lost all four. They now stand at 2-4 with a meeting against East Carolina, a team that is much more their speed, on the horizon. The game will be played in Annapolis at 3:30 on Saturday.
East Carolina has an identical 2-4 record, but their games have not been nearly as close as Navy's have been. In fact, three of their four losses have come in blowout fashion. They have a shared opponent in the South Carolina Gamecocks, and Navy played them much tougher. East Carolina lost 56-37 while Navy only lost 24-21. East Carolina has a very weak defense that Navy may be able to exploit considering how strong they are on the ground.
