Navy Midshipmen

 

A win by Navy Midshipmen over Kansas State will complete their magnificent turnaround this season. They are coming off a woeful 2018 season and new goals have been set. Malcolm Perry will be at the helm once more for Navy. He has amassed a total of 1,804 yards and 21 TDs. Perry has also passed for 1,027 yards, a reason why he anchors the triple-option offense of the Mids. Their season also saw a big improvement on defense. Navy has limited the opposition to 326.3 yards.

Players to watch:

M. Perry QB (43 CMP 79 ATT 1027 YDS 54.4 CMP% 13 AVG 80 LNG 6 TD 3 INT 13 SACK -75 SYL 181.1 RTG 238 ATT 1500 YDS 6.3 AVG 70 LNG 19 TD), J. Carothers FB (76 ATT 637 YDS 8.4 AVG 75 LNG 13 TD), N.

Kansas State Wildcats

The Wildcats are having a turnaround season of their own although there are some shortcomings. This was that loss to West Virginia at home. Like Navy, the Wildcats are expected to try and run. Skylar Thompson will lead the offensive attack anew. This season he has accumulated 2,191 yards with 12 touchdowns and five picks. Josh Youngblood may not have done much on the receiving end but does his work as a kick returner. All eyes will be on the Wildcats defense as well. They allow just 21.5 points per game. They have also proven they can beat teams on the ground.
