Will Reynolds torch Pitt?
No. 21 Navy brings its powerful running attack to the Military Bowl today when it takes on Pittsburgh at 2:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Navy is favored in today’s game, as the Midshipmen are getting odds of -3 points against the Panthers. The over/under total for the game has been set at 53 points. These two meet today at 2:30PM ET on ESPN. The game is played from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, MD.
Navy (10-2, 8-4 ATS) has the third-best rushing attack in the country, averaging 319.2 yards per game. Leading the attack is QB Keenan Reynolds, who has run for 1,229 yards and 21 touchdowns while passing for 1,077 yards and 7 scores. Today, Reynolds and the Midshipmen face off with the 31-st ranked pass defense in Pittsburgh (8-4, 6-6 ATS), who is giving up just 138.4 yards per contest on the ground. Despite that, Navy will get rushing yards with its triple option offense. Not many have been able to stop it.
Along with Reynolds, Navy also has Chris Swain, who has run for 909 yards and 10 touchdowns. Swain has four 100-yards rushing games this season. Reynolds is coming off a 136-yard performance against Army and he has had four straight games with at least 80 rushing yards and he has rushed for over 100 yards seven times. Reynolds will be the focal point of the offense and you can probably expect another 100-yard game out of him against Pitt today.
