Missouri finished a lack luster season with just seven wins on the season and part of that was being inconsistent combined with the ability to lose games at home where they finished just 3-3. They better be on top of their game when they face the Navy midshipmen.  

Navy just defeated Army (again) and walked away with the commander’s trophy. Navy proved they can travel well and won in some intimidating venues like South bend. The thing with the Navy team is they are disciplined and always prepare to play tough. 

These teams play two different styles on offense as Missouri plays more of a run-n-gun and Navy grinds it out with the Triple Option, but what may surprise this team is the defense that Navy plays. They are very good on defense and have better numbers than Missouri in every category.  

The Tigers have much more than that against them for this game against Navy. The 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall, 1-8 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games in December. Navy is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games in December and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Bowl games. Take them to win this game outright. 

Texas Bowl Pick: Navy +6.5
