GoMids.com Prediction

Losing Brian Hampton has really hurt Navy. Luckily, the Mids had an off-week after the Rutgers disaster. Notre Dame is the solid favorite, even more so now that Navy must break in a new quarterback. However, upsets do happen so don't totally count the Mids out. But look for a big victory by a well coached Notre Dame team. Then the fun starts. Should be four straight wins to finish the season before Navy goes bowling . . . again!
