BYU dominates Navy to close Week 1 of college football season


Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo told ESPN's Allison Williams before the game that tonight will be the first live action his players have seen all year.


The Cougars will counter with junior quarterback Zach Wilson, who started nine games last season while throwing for 2,382 yards and 11 touchdowns with a 62.4 completion percentage.


Coach : Ken Niumatalolo (98-60, 13th season) 2020 fall schedule : BYU (Sept. 7); at Tulane (Sept. 19); Temple (Sept. 26); at Air Force (Oct. 3); at East Carolina (Oct. 17); Houston (Oct. 24); at SMU (Oct. 31); Tulsa (Nov. 7); Memphis (Nov. 14); at South Florida (Nov. 21); vs. Army in Philadelphia (Dec. 12)


Coach : Kalani Sitake (27-25, fifth season) 2020 fall schedule : at Navy (Sept. 7); at Army (Sept. 19); Troy (Sept. 26); UTSA (Oct. 10); at Houston (Oct. 16); Texas State (Oct. 24); Western Kentucky (Oct. 31); North Alabama (Nov. 21)


It'll be up to an offensive line that boasts 115 combined starts to keep the pocket clean for Wilson and create running room for Lopini Katoa and Sione Finau.


Tight end Matt Bushman is the only one of BYU's top four receiving yardage leaders to return, which might lead to an increase in touches for the 6-foot-5 senior.
