All-time series: Navy 28-11
The passing attack of UVA against the ground game of the Navy Midshipmen. This game will be a great way to start your Thursday afternoon off right. I honestly can’t wait for this.
Kurt Benkert (3,062-25-8) has an accurate cannon of an arm. I’ve seen him thread the needle downfield like no other. Versatile RB Olamide Zaccheaus (80-833-5) is a prime weapon for him. WRs Andre Levrone (31-662-7) and Doni Dowling (48-632-5) will help spread the field. Jordan Ellis (799-6) will handle the ground game for the Cavaliers. This team is fun to watch.
QB Zach Abey (805-7-7) is also Navy’s leading rusher with 1,325 yards and 14 TDs on the ground. He’ll also have Malcolm Perry (1,068-9) carrying the ball. They don’t pass much, but when they do, look out for Tyler Carmona (14-381-4). He’s a big play guy averaging 27.2 yards per catch.
Fun game to watch, hard one to bet. I think UVA wins outright. I also feel that a lot of points will be scored. Heavy lean on the over for me.
