Navy finally returns to the gridiron tonight when they face the Univeristy of Pittsburgh at Heinz Field at 8pm on ESPN. Pre-game coverage begins on the Navy Radio Network at 6pm on www.wnav.com. Bob Socci and Omar Nelson have the call on the radio.
Just how good is Pittsburgh? It really hard to tell. The wins over Eastern Michigan and Grambling aren't much. The only lost 17-14 to Michigan State and then got blown out by UCONN and UVA.
Pitt is playing its third quarterback, depends on a talented freshmen running back and has a defense statiscally rated #9 in the country.
Navy has been simmering, playing its only game in a 21-day period. Perhaps with the nature of the first five games, the break came at the right time. The Mids should be fresh. If they play turnover free football, a win against a Big East team could be at hand.
Navy must block the perimeter players for Pitt consistently. If they do that, they will get win three in a row.....
