Key #1: The Sun Devils have to shore up their rush defense
The great news for the Sun Devils this year is that they had one of the Top 15 pass defenses in the country this year, allowing just 178.8 yards per game in the big time Pac-12 with some of the best quarterbacks and most dynamic offenses in the nation. The bad news is that that isn’t going to come in handy in this one against the Midshipmen. The worse news is that ASU was terrible against the run, allowing 172.0 yards per game and ranking 75th in that category. Against the three teams that run sort of quirky offenses this year that the team has played, the UCLA Bruins, Arizona Wildcats, and Oregon Ducks, the Sun Devils allowed an average of just over 300 yards per game. If the Midshipmen end up with over 300 rushing yards in this game, Arizona State is going to be in a heck of a lot of trouble, especially if those yards are coming in gashes as we have seen this front seven allow at times this year.

Key #2: The ASU offense cannot make careless mistakes
Untimely penalties have been problematic this year for the Sun Devils, and we think that those problems really need to go away against a typically disciplined Navy team that has the ability to really do some damage on both sides of the ball. ASU also committed 23 turnovers this year, and QB Taylor Kelly was accountable for 12 of those turnovers, including nine picks. Of course, what we do know about the Sun Devils is that they did a decent job this year with Kelly under center of not turning the ball over, as QB Michael Eubank also threw three picks in games in which he had to come in out of the bullpen for Kelly. There are also three running backs that have a hand in this offense as well in RB Marion Grice, RB Cameron Marshall, and RB DJ Foster, and these three are going to have to be sure-handed with the football as well if the Sun Devils are going to have a chance to cover such a huge number in a bowl game.


Key #3: Gee Gee Greene has to make some big time plays for the Navy offense
The triple option isn’t an offense that is known for its big time plays, and this really is no exception. RB Noah Copeland, QB Keenan Reynolds, and QB Trey Miller all averaged 4.6 yards per carry or less, and that isn’t going to get the job done when push comes to shove for the Navy offense. Reynolds averaged 9.1 yards per pass attempt and had eight scores against just one pick, which did help out quite a bit. The key though, is RB Gee Gee Greene, who is the most dynamic player on the offense. He led the team in rushing with 108 carries, 765 yards, and three scores, and his 7.1 yards per carry was easily tops on the team for rushers that had more than 20 carries. Greene was also the team’s leading receiver with 303 yards and two TDs on 17 receptions. This is the man that can really break this offense open at times, and he is going to need to do it on a few plays every now and again to keep Arizona State from clogging up the middle of the line and bashing the triple option at the point of attack.
