The Navy Midshipmen and Notre Dame Fighting Irish clash Saturday in week 11 college football action from M&T Bank Stadium.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will try to build on their three-game win streak after a dominant 35-14 win over Clemson last time out. Drew Pyne has thrown for 1,278 yards, 14 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on 61% passing while Audric Estime has a team-high 662 rushing yards with 9 touchdowns. Logan Diggs has 545 rushing yards and Chris Tyree also has 348 rushing yards as well this season. Michael Mayer leads Notre Dame’s receiving group with 51 grabs for 624 yards and 7 touchdowns while Lorenzo Styles also has 292 receiving yards as well. On defense, JD Bertrand has a team-high 60 total tackles while Isaiah Foskey has a team-high 8.5 sacks as well this season.

The Navy Midshipmen will try to rebound after a 20-10 loss to Cincinnati on the road to fall to 3-6 on the year as a result. Daba Fofana has a team-high 502 rushing yards with 5 touchdowns while Maquel Haywood has 406 rushing yards as well this season. Jayden Umbarger leads the Middies in receiving with 16 grabs for 265 yards while Vincent Terrell Jr. also has 206 receiving yards as well this season. On defense, John Marshall leads Navy with 72 total tackles including 30 solo tackles and 5 sacks while Jacob Burns has 6 sacks as well this season.

Notre Dame is 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games following a win and 14-2-1 ATS in their last 17 November games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 non-conference games. Navy is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a loss.

I get the case to be made either way but I’m looking at the under here. Notre Dame hasn’t ben all that good offensively so far this season, struggling to move the ball up and down the field and stalling on a lot of their drives not resulting in any points. On the other side, we know how volatile that option offense of Navy’s can be to the over and I think this is a first to 20 wins kind of game. Give me the under here.
