SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The crew on ESPN’s College Gameday made their predictions for who will win in the Labor Day football game between the BYU Cougars and Navy Midshipmen.

Navy is scheduled to host BYU in Annapolis, Maryland on Monday, September 7.

On Saturday, September 5, three members of College Gameday made their picks for BYU’s season opener.

Desmond Howard started the predictions by picking the Cougars to come out victorious. Both David Pollack and Lee Corso followed up Howard’s pick by taking the Midshipmen.

Corso coached the defensive backs at Navy from 1966-68.
