Notre Dame Fighting Irish (4-3) vs. Navy Midshipmen (4-2)

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010 12:00PM ET

Line: Notre Dame -6.5

Notre Dame recovered from their tough string of losses earlier in the season by winning their last three games. Dayne Crist continues to air it out, passing for 255 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in last week’s win against Western Michigan. Navy has won their last two games this season thanks to their savior quarterback Ricky Dobbs and some support from their running backs. Both teams are in the best form of their season thus far heading into this one.

Keys to the Game:

–          Ricky Dobbs threw two touchdowns and ran for two more against in their win against Wake Forest two weeks ago. He threw for 84 yards and threw a touchdown while getting support from the team’s full back, Alexander Teich last week. Teich ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns in the teams win against Southern Methodist.

–          Both defenses in this matchup are solid. Notre Dame’s defensive unit has been manhandled by Stanford a few weeks ago, but they’ve bounced back well. Navy has held opponents to 18.2 points against them this season. They will look to slow the game down as the Fighting Irish will seek to do the opposite behind their 18th-ranked passing game.

–          Notre Dame’s Michael Floyd had his best game of the season last week; catching nine balls for 157 yards and three touchdowns. So far the junior receiver has caught 44 balls for 624 yards and six touchdowns for the Fighting Irish.

Notre Dame will look to push their passing game behind Floyd and Riddick. The team has also had an average season running ball, as they are averaging 113 rushing yards per game this season. Navy will continue to enforce their running attack behind Dobbs. They’ll also have some receivers and full backs run the ball too against the Notre Dame defense. Expect the Fighting Irish to overcome Navy’s ground game.
