A few links to start off the week…
RE: Navy's upcoming opponent, Pittsburgh (2-0)
Pittsburgh's secondary was torched in its 54-27 victory over Buffalo, and the Panthers also lost starting free safety Andrew Taglianetti for the season with a torn ACL. The Panthers have a pair of playmakers in tight end Dorin Dickerson (8 catches for 71 yards, 3 TD's) and freshman tailback Dion Lewis (24 carries for 190 yards, 2 TD's), both of whom had big days against Buffalo. Dickerson, who is 6-2 and 230 pounds, is a match-up nightmare.
RE: Air Force (1-1) and Army (1-1)
Air Force's defense was good, but not great, in its 20-13 loss at Minnesota. The Falcons missed their chance to pull of a mild upset, says David Ramsey of the Colorado Springs Gazette. "It's too early to say if this loss will define Air Force," Ramsey writes. "This is not an overwhelming collection of talent. The defense will keep the team in contention heading into the fourth quarters on future nights and afternoons."
Two interceptions doomed Army in its 35-19 loss to Duke, but Coach Rich Ellerson says the Black Knights are close to being a consistent winner.
Wide receiver Ali Villanueva, a 6-foot-10 senior who started at tackle last season, caught three passes on Army's final drive, and finished with four catches for 68 yards. Some notes off of the Duke game.
