1. Slow Steve Baylark — Paul Johnson wanted Baylark at Georgia Southern before taking the Navy job, and he is now the linchpin for the Massachusetts offense. Navy always wants to stop the run first, but it will be particularly important against the run-first Minutemen.

2. Hit the open man — Brian Hampton might have missed a pair of touchdown passes last week in his first career start. While the Mids still ran for more than 400 yards, hitting a few passes can open up more running room for the triple option.

3. Start on time — Johnson was not pleased with a pair of false starts last week. Pre-snap penalties kill the Mids because it puts them “off schedule” — they expect second-and-6, third-and-2, etc.
