The Colgate Raiders and Navy Midshipmen meet Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

The Colgate Raiders look to bounce back after finishing with a 5-7 record in which they lost five of their last six games. Jake Melville returns at quarterback after completing 58.7 percent of his passes for six touchdowns and two interceptions for Colgate. John Quazza and John Maddaluna III combined for more than 700 receiving yards and two touchdowns for the Raiders while Alex Greenawalt had 23 receptions. Demetrius Russell returns at running back after leading Colgate with 732 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Kyle Diener led Colgate with 89 tackles, Victor Steffen had 4.5 sacks and Adam Bridgeforth had five pass deflections.

The Navy Midshipmen look to reach a fourth straight bowl game after combining for 17 victories their last two seasons. Keenan Reynolds leads Navy once again at quarterback after rushing for more than 1,000 yards and 23 touchdowns last season. Jamir Tillman and Demond Brown combined for more than 400 receiving yards and three touchdowns for Navy while DeBrandon Sanders had two receptions and one score. Chris Swain leads Navy at running back after rushing for 693 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Daniel Gonzales had 86 tackles for the Midshipmen, Will Anthony had 11 tackles for loss and Quincy Adams had nine pass deflections.

Navy is a flat out scoring machine with Reynolds at quarterback. The Midshipmen are scary offensively and will be a force al season long on that side of the ball. Colgate also returns a good deal of its offense and should put up a few scores as well.

I like the over in this spot.
