The Memphis Tigers are one of the most explosive offensive teams in college football and White could easily be in the Heisman conversation if he played on a more popular school. The issue here is that Memphis plays in a lot of games that come down to the wire and the Tigers are just 1-5 against the spread. The Navy Midshipmen have had an extra week to prepare for this game, and while they're not as efficient as they've been in past years, they're still a tough team to prepare for and that running attack is still effective. Navy has also been one of the better covering teams in college football the last couple of years.
Give me Navy and the points.
