Navy offense vs. Western Kentucky defense: Kriss Proctor tore through the Delaware defense for 176 yards and three touchdowns, and also had his first career passing touchdown on a neatly executed stop-action. The Hilltoppers held Kentucky to 93 yards on 33 carries and intercepted the Wildcats three times while holding them to 97 yards in the air on seven-of-18 passing. Given that the school is located only 15 miles from The Hermitage, it's appropriate that the defense is led by Andrew Jackson, who had a team-high 12 tackles.

Navy defense vs. Western Kentucky offense: The Midshipmen had one interception, by senior safety Kwesi Mitchell, and forced two fumbles, both by junior linebacker Matt Brewer, against Delaware. A week after Andrew Pierce rushed for 119 yards on 20 carries for Delaware, the defense will have a similar challenge in containing Bobby Rainey, who has a streak of six straight games with at least 100 yards dating to last season.
