2014 Navy Midshipmen Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks

2013 Record: 9-4
2014 Las Vegas Season Win Total: 7.5*
2014 Season Win Total Prediction: XXX
Navy football is what it is. They continue to use the triple-option attack and remain one of the trickiest teams in the country to steal a win from. Outside of its annual clash with Army, Navy football is completely off the national radar and content with eight wins and a bowl game.
So Navy fans should be happy with this year's version. Led by record-setting quarterback Keenan Reynolds the Midshipmen will again be a tough out for opponents. In fact, this year's version could be the best Navy team we've seen in nearly 10 years and they have a great opportunity to win 10 games.
Navy will face Ohio State in Baltimore to open the season. And in a quirk, Navy begins the year with seven straight games before its first bye. But after that they will get two weeks to prepare for San Jose State, Georgia Southern, South Alabama and Army. That is a big advantage.
The Middies only play three games against programs in the top half of the national rankings. And all three of those games (Ohio State, Rutgers and Notre Dame) will be played in Maryland. I think that Navy can pull at least one upset in one of those games and they may even be favored over Rutgers.
The rest of the Navy schedule is dotted with cupcakes and cream puffs. I think that the actual number that the books release - as opposed to our projected season win total - will be 9.5. But regardless of it being 7.5 or 9.5 I see Navy winning 10 games this year and enjoying one of its best-ever seasons. Play the Middies 'over'.
