Navy hosts UCF in AAC Battle

Navy will host the UCF in an AAC matchup Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.  The Midshipmen come into the game looking for their first victory of the season.  Navy has been inconsistent offensively this year and look to get back on track against the Knights.

UCF (2-1) is the only AAC team that Navy has not defeated since joining the American Athletic Conference in 2015.  UCF’s high profile quarterback, Dillon Gabriel is out with an injury and freshman, Mikey Keene will make his first start.  UCF is averaging 44.7 points per game and we’ll have to seen if the quarterback change will have any impact on the teams efficiency. 

Xavier Arline is expected to get the start at quarterback for the Midshipmen.  Arline became the starter after the injury of Tai Lavatai in week 1.  Arline leads the Navy run game with 171 yards on 51 carries.

The game can be seen on CBS Sports Network at 3:30.
