Navy and SMU will meet Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (34,00) in Annapolis on Senior Day. Kickoff is set for 3:30 PM (ET) and the game will be televised by CBS Sports Network with John Sadak, Randy Cross and Sheehan Stanwick-Burch on the call. This is the 19th meeting all-time between the two schools, but just the third as American Athletic Conference foes.

Navy enters play in fourth place in the West Division, 1/2 game behind SMU for third and 1 game behind Houston for second. The Mids still have a shot at finishing in a tie for first place, but would need wins over SMU and Houston, an SMU win over Memphis and a Memphis loss to East Carolina on the final weekend. The Mids would lose out in a headto-head tie with Memphis, but a four-way tie with Memphis, SMU and Houston is too convoluted to break at this point.

An SMU win on Saturday would set up a showdown for a share of first place next weekend when it plays at Memphis

Navy’will honor its 34 seniors in a pregame ceremony on Saturday. The senior class has compiled a record of 33-15 (.688), which puts them four wins away from tying the school record for wins by a senior class and five from breaking the record. Navy has at least four and as many as six games remaining if it makes it to the AAC Championship Game and a bowl game.

The National Anthem will take place at 3:16 PM, followed by fly-over featuring two Bell-Boeing MV-22 Ospreys from the “Blue Knights” of Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 365 based out of Marine Corps Air Station New River in Jacksonville, N.C. Piloting the lead aircraft will be Major Jason “Crome” Harris, USNA Class of 2003, and Capt. Anthony “Cheesecake” Beaupre, USNA Class of 2012. The dash two aircraft will be piloted by Captain Drew “WANG” Presnell, USNA Class of 2012 and Captain James “Bob” Barker, USNA Class of 2012. The Blue Knights recently returned home from eight months of supporting operations in the 5th Fleet as part of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit followed by Hurricane Relief operations in Puerto Rico.

Contrary to the original title….this is NOT a LOVE blog, but a LIVE one. Not sure who thought it was a good idea to put the letters O and I next to each other on a keyboard.
