The Pick

Over 56

You think Navy, you think running the ball and slow games. But that’s not always the case, and shouldn’t be here. Memphis has seen at least 59 points scored in every game they’ve played this season, and they’ve also turned it over 10 times in six games.

Plus the Mids are getting it together after a difficult start, averaging 29 points per game in their last two, yet they’re still bad enough in the secondary to allow plenty of quick strikes.

In the Liberty Bowl Thursday night, the points should run free.
