Navy hasn’t been it’s usual stellar self this season, going 2-7 straight up in 9 games. But, the Midshipmen have hung in their in most games. As a +22.5 dog against Notre Dame earlier this season, Navy spotted the Irish a 27-0 halftime lead.

Navy vs UCF Final NCAAF Betting Analysis

In Navy’s win cover against the Irish, Notre Dame called off the starters after running out to a huge 27-0 lead. Navy played well, but they were at home and Notre Dame didn’t want to put too big of a beat down on the Midshipmen.

UCF will have no qualms about beating Navy by as much as they can. The Knights feel that again the College Football Playoff Committee is slighting them because they don’t play in a Big 5 Conference. What more can you do than to win 21 straight games?

Coach Josh Heupel and his team will take the slight to heart. They’re going to try and score 60 points or more on Navy to try and get the CFP’s attention.
