Game Analysis

A lot has been made about Navy only returning 9 starters , but that is of no matter to me, as the recruiting class that Niumatalolo  has on board,is more than capable of taking out lower tier opponents with ease via a triple option offense that is extremely hard to stop, when not having experienced it regularly ie ( Florida Atlantic). I expect Zach Abey The 6'2", 212-pound junior who after being thrown into his first game because of injury to the Middies starter struggled in his proverbial first kick at the cat. But going forward after that ugly effort he performed much better in the Armed Forces Bowl, rushing for 114 yards and passing for another 159 and looks primed to be even smoother this season, behind a deep crew of powerful backs. On defense, Navy has 6 returning starters and look primed for a stellar season. 

I know a lot has been made about Lane Kiffin the new coach of Florida Atlantic,  but he will have some monumental problems trying to reformulate a  FAU front four that was disastrous last season, allowing close to 3,000 rushing yards and 37 scores. Early on in this season,  Im betting Lanes D is not ready for what's coming their way. 

I'm projecting that Navy puts 28 or more points on the board-FLA ATLANTIC is 0-10 ATS L/10 when they allow 28 or more points. 

 A home team Florida Atlantic - in the first month of the season, after closing out last season with 2 or more straight losses against opponent in the first month of the season, bowl team from prior season who lost their last 3 games are 6-30 ATS dating back 25 seasons.FLA ATLANTIC is also 0-6 ATS L/6 in home lined games.
