The Midshipmen ended the season with the better record of these two teams with eight wins as opposed to seven, but in the end, there is a clear divide between which one of these teams has the more talent and the more potential. More talent and more potential doesn’t always mean more points though, and that might be what Arizona State finds out when it takes on the triple option. Making Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl picks might be more difficult than you would initially think.

We’re really not all that sold on what Arizona State is bringing to the table. Yes, we were most certainly impressed with the 41-34 win on the road at the Arizona Wildcats in the instate rivalry game to end the regular season, but in the end, it just wasn’t the type of victory that really makes us that impressed. The 21-point loss to the USC Trojans looked worse and worse as the season went on, and that was just the final defeat in a string of four straight losses to end the regular season. Looking back at it, QB Taylor Sharp and the gang only did beat one bowl team in the campaign, that being Arizona. Aside from that, there were some losses to teams that the Sun Devils should have lost to, and some like the one at the Missouri Tigers that at the end of the year, really didn’t look all that great.

The Sun Devils are up against a Navy offense that requires attention to detail, something that wasn’t had in games against the likes of Oregon, USC, and UCLA, all clubs which put at least 38 on the board against them. QB Keenan Reynolds has clearly been the best choice for the Middies to use at quarterback, as he has gotten the ball moving both through the air and on the ground. He threw for 884 yards with eight scores and a pick and rushed for 628 yards and 10 scores in basically eight games this year, and he has two other great rushers in RB Gee Gee Greene and RB Noah Copeland that can both go off for 100+ yards if given the opportunity. In the end, for us, this is a matter of preparation. You’re never going to catch the Midshipmen unprepared. There’s a decent chance that the Sun Devils could be. We certainly want the point on our side.

Navy vs. Arizona State Pick: Navy Midshipmen +14
