Randy’s Free Pick

The Navy Midshipmen have not only been the better team this season, but they’re playing comfortably the better ball overall between these clubs. The American Eagles have been in terrible shape over the last week, and I doubt this is the game they get back on track given the way Navy is playing. I’ll lay the point with the road team.
