Watch Houston vs. Navy: How to live stream, TV channel, start time for Saturday's NCAA Football game

Who's Playing

Houston (home) vs. No. 24 Navy (away)

Current Records: Houston 4-7; Navy 8-2

What to Know

The Houston Cougars are home on Saturday, but with the point spread against them by 9 points, it might not be quite the welcoming they would prefer. Houston and the Navy Midshipmen will face off in an American Athletic battle at 7 p.m. ET at TDECU Stadium. The Cougars have seen their point totals decreasing over the past three games, a vulnerability Navy is surely hoping to exploit.

Last week, Houston had a touchdown and change to spare in a 24-14 victory over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Houston's only touchdown came from QB Clayton Tune.

Houston's defense was a presence, and it collected two interceptions and two fumbles. The picks came courtesy of S Gervarrius Owens and CB Damarion Williams.

Meanwhile, Navy was able to grind out a solid win over the SMU Mustangs last week, winning 35-28. RB Malcolm Perry had a dynamite game for Navy; he rushed for 195 yards and two TDs on 38 carries. Perry didn't help his team much against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish two weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him.

Their wins bumped the Cougars to 4-7 and the Midshipmen to 8-2. A couple numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Cougars are stumbling into the game with the sixth most passing yards allowed per game in the nation, having given up 304.9 on average. But the Midshipmen are third worst in the nation in passing yards per game, with only 103.2 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
