GoMids.com Prediction

UMass quarterback Liam Coen completed 11-of-19 passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Minutemen past Colgate, 28-7. Meanwhile, UMass's defense held Colgate to just 183 yards of total offense. Big difference here: Navy isn't Colgate. Expect total domination by the Mids from start to finish.
