Navy vs. Missouri

Navy's secondary could be exposed against Mizzou.

Navy offense vs. Missouri defense
• After reviewing the Army film, Navy's triple-option attack had problems finding holes on the ground against the Black Knights' defense during the first half. Part of this problem came from the Midshipmen's inability to get movement on the interior, which neutralized QB Ricky Dobbs' option of giving the ball to FB Vince Murray on a quick dive-play up the middle. Unfortunately things won't get easier for Navy on the interior front line as DTs Jaron Baston and Dominique Hamilton both possess above-average size and strength and should have no problems anchoring on the inside. In addition, MLB Will Ebner is a reliable tackler in the middle and should have no problems cleaning up Murray on the dive option.
