Army-Navy stat comparison

Navy Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths:

Navy leads the nation in rushing averaging 323.1 yards per game. The Midshipmen's powerful run game is led by running back Kyle Eckel who has rushed for 1026 yards and averages 5.3 yards per carry.

Weaknesses:

Midshipman Craig Candeto has passed for 1052 yards and 7 touchdown passes, compared to Zac Dahman's 2119 yards and 11 touchdown passes. This is surely going to be a battle of Navy's high powered run game against Army's one-sided passing offense.
