Following the loss to UCF, the Bearcats will return to Nippert Stadium for a matchup against Navy on Saturday afternoon. Luke Fickell’s team will try to get back on track against another elite rushing offense with kick off at 4:00 PM on ESPNU and fuboTV.

Cincinnati is hoping to bounce back after the first conference loss in nearly three years and stay in contention for a third straight championship. Navy’s triple-option attack could create problems for the rush defense that has struggled in recent weeks.

Despite being tied for second place in the conference standings, the Bearcats still have a good chance to reach the title game if they can avoid another loss. That will start against the AAC’s top rushing offense with 244.5 yards and 61.1 carries per game.

According to 506 Sports, the ESPNU commentators are going to be play-by-play announcer Kevin Brown and former Georgia quarterback Huston Mason. It’s the first Bearcats game that Brown will call this year, while Mason called the matchup at Tulsa last month.

Even though Cincinnati is favored by 19.5 points, the Midshipmen might keep the chains moving and stay within striking distance into the second half. Navy’s quarterback Tai Lavatai is out with a season-ending knee injury so Xavier Arline is expected to start.

In a weekly press conference, Luke Fickell touched on the upcoming matchup per Cincinnati Athletics.

"“Obviously when you play a service academy, it’s always a unique week. In some ways it was great to come back in here and completely shift gears and get your mind onto something different. Every team is different and every year is different. Sometimes week to week is a bit too. That’s where you just have to continue to grow and make sure that the play on the field will take care of itself. The locker room and preparation is what’s so critical.”"
