Navy takes a 0-2 record in today’s visit to VMI.

Chances are, the Midshipmen will crack the win column against the Keydets, whose turnover foibles have nearly matched Navy’s to date.

As for what to keep an eye on in the Mids’ home opener? Read on …

1. Trey Miller will not commit a turnover.

It’s been a rough two games for the junior, who has four fumbles and two interceptions. After a week of ball security serving as the primary, secondary and tertiary message for Navy’s quarterback, expect a clean game for the junior.

2. Gee Gee Greene will score a touchdown.

If Navy’s recent games against lower-division games are any indication, it could be a fine day for the Mids’ slotbacks. That includes Greene, who scored Navy’s lone touchdown a week ago.

3. Jonathan Wev will start at cornerback.

The junior didn’t play last week while dealing with the effects of a Sept. 1 concussion. Wev worked his way back into practice during the week, going non-contact a few days and full contact on Wednesday. Quincy Adams will likely slide back into a reserve role.

4. A Navy defensive lineman will have a sack.

Reserve linemen Paul Quessenberry and Danny Ring shared a sack against Notre Dame, and no defensive lineman managed one against Penn State. The defensive front remains a fairly fluid situation, but someone has to reach the quarterback on their own eventually. Today seems like a good today to call for that to happen.

5. Navy will win.

This is a game Navy needs simply to get well. At 1-2, the Mids would be where they were expected to be as they head deeper into their schedule. VMI’s turnover struggles are a good sign for Navy, which shouldn’t have too many problems against the Keydets.
