There will be no shortage of offense in this game. Indiana is coming off a 73 point performance against Indiana State, a game in which they had over 600 yards of offense and nine touchdowns. The Hoosiers special teams also picked up a touchdown on a 58 yard punt return by Shane Wynn. Indiana’s offense is clearly loaded with talent. The Hoosiers defense is soft, especially against the pass and Navy’s triple option should allow for some big plays on the ground.
Last season Navy’s triple option propelled them to 278 rushing yards per game, ranking 6th among FBS teams. Keenan Reynolds should have a big game throwing the ball against this weak Hoosiers secondary. Last season Reynolds had9 passing touchdowns with just two interceptions and 898 yards through the air. The offensive line is good, and should provide plenty of pass protection. The Midshipmen also have Brandon Turner returning at wideout, and he should have a big game against this Indiana team that allowed 14.6 yards per catch last week.
Indiana is 5-1 to the over in their last six home games, and 13-3 to the over in their last 16 games when coming off a 200+ yard rushing performance. The Hoosiers should have a big game through the air because this Navy defense is built to stop the run, not the pass. With both teams relying on the air attack to move the ball, and both defenses having very soft secondary’s, this game should be a shootout.
