Notre Dame vs Navy, Prediction, Game Preview

Michigan State Spartans v Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Brian Kelly shocked the college football world when he departed from Notre Dame to become LSU's head coach this past offseason, and all eyes are now on Marcus Freeman and his debut season at the head of Notre Dame football.

In his first season at the helm, Freeman and the Irish will be tested by some of the top teams in the country, including Ohio State, Clemson, and USC. In addition to these critical games, Freeman will also have his first chance to leave his mark on some of Notre Dame's biggest rivals, such as the Navy Midshipmen.

SportsRec Prediction

Notre Dame 45, Navy 10

The Irish have dominated this series as of late and that trend seems likely to continue when the two teams meet in November. Simply said- Notre Dame is one of the most talented teams in the country going into the year, and while Navy seems to be on track for a better season than their 4-8 2021, they should not present much of a challenge to the Irish.
