Louisiana Tech vs. Navy preview:

The middle of the season saw plenty of success for the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. The team racked up seven straight wins after opening the season with a 1-3 record. At 8-3, the Bulldogs looked like they were headed for a very successful season, yet they lost their last two games of the season to slide to 8-5. Now they face Navy in the Armed Forces Bowl.

Navy also lost its last two games of the season after putting together a very successful 2016 campaign. The Midshipmen pulled off a few very impressive victories this season, such as the win over Houston, and a 44-point win over SMU. However, Navy also mixed in a few suspect results, such as a 14-point loss to Air Force and a surprising loss to Army.

The Midshipmen and Bulldogs have played two times in history, with Navy winning both contests. The last game between these two programs was played in 2010.

Louisiana Tech vs. Navy prediction:

Both Louisiana Tech and Navy boast high-powered offenses. The Bulldogs feature a pro-style approach that could cause problems for the Midshipmen.

However, after losing its last two contests, Navy will look to rebound with a solid win. It will do just that.
