GoMids.com Prediction

Eastern Michigan is a decent team with a horrible record. They are probably the strongest of the Navy's final four regular season opponents. They've played some good teams close and have only been blown out a couple times. Quarterback Andy Schmitt has completed 97 of 155 passes for almost 900 yards. Navy had better get some pressure on him or he'll pick them apart. This is going to be a close game with Navy just pulling out the win.
