BYU vs Navy Picks 9/7/20 | Chris’ Picks

BYU vs Navy

BYU and Navy come into this game pretty evenly matched with the spread currently sitting at BYU -1. Tonight’s matchup will be only the third in these schools’ histories, and the first since 1989. While on a normal college football weekend this game would fall in the middle of the pack, for this Labor Day weekend it will be the headliner. Both these teams reached bowls in the 2019 season and hope to build on the success this year.

While BYU was able to finish the season with a record of 7-6, a loss to Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl has undoubtingly left a bad taste in their mouth. However, with victories over teams like USC and Tennessee this team’s future looks bright. Due to injuries BYU will be playing this game without their top 4 receivers from a year ago. Needless to stay BYU will need young players to step up in order to win this game.

Last year Navy had a very impressive season winning 11 games including a Liberty Bowl victory over Kansas State. Navy’s star QB Malcolm Perry graduated last year and looks to be replaced by Dalen Morris. After starting camp as the number three passer on the depth cart he has worked his way up to starter. Jamale Carothers joins him in the backfield. Last year Jamale rushed for 734 yards and 14 touchdowns. This dual threat from Navy will be a big part of their game plan tonight.

Under head coach Ken Niumatalolo Navy is 5-0 in their home openers. However, none of those games were against a team as good as BYU. However, this Navy team looks like a team who could be a real contender this year. In a year with a smaller field of teams, Navy could find there way into the top of the rankings. My pick for this game is Navy +1.
