Big Sky Predictions 9-14

Postby JALMOND » Wed Sep 11, 2019 6:19 pm

I've had a pair of 11-1 weeks so far. The conference is still in the midst of the non-conference slate. Here is my attempt this week at perfection.

CP at Oregon State (FBS Pac-12)---The Mustangs have looked fine so far this season and now head out to play a Pac-12 patsy. They may have a shot at getting this game if they play near perfect and Oregon State helps them out...Oregon State 31, CP 27.

EWU at Jacksonville State (Ohio Valley)---The Eagles defense has struggled at times. Washington was forgivable but last week? The offense may need to score enough points to cover the defense and they may not get enough this game...Jacksonville State 38, EWU 31.

UI at Wyoming (FBS Mtn West)---Two surprising teams in their respectable levels, but for the wrong reasons. Vandals struggled to put a DII team away last week. Maybe they were still feeling the effects of Penn State. Or maybe not...Wyoming 48, UI 7.

ISU at Utah (FBS Pac-12)---The Bengals are coming off a game that they did what they were supposed to do. They are not supposed to be competitive in this game against a top tier FBS team, but they can make it interesting...Utah 42. ISU 14.

UM at Oregon (FBS Pac-12)---Hard to believe these two played in the same conference a long time ago. If Oregon tries to sleepwalk through this, the Grizzlies can make them pay. But Oregon got their wakeup call last week...Oregon 49, UM 14.

MSU at Western Illinois (Mo Valley)---Have the Bobcats solved their quarterback issues from the beginning of the season? If they have, going on the road into Missouri Valley country should be nothing to be worried about...MSU 33, Western Illinois 28.

Western New Mexico (DII) at NAU---The Lumberjacks may love shootouts for awhile, at least until the defense gets it feet under them. Giving up 51 points in a half is certainly not good, but the offense seems to be...NAU 52, Western New Mexico 35.

UNC at SAC---Another non-conference game involving two conference teams. The Hornets defense kept a Pac-12 team pretty much under wraps. The offense had a field day the week before. The Bears looked impressive against San Jose State, but not too well against Washington State...SAC 28, UNC 14.

PSU at Boise State (FBS Mtn West)---The Vikings stayed within striking distance of their last FBS opponent and have a history of playing Boise State tough, even on the blue field. They still seem to find ways to lose the game, like they should...Boise State 31, PSU 10.

Stephen F Austin (Southland) at SUU---The Thunderbirds still are trying to get on track, but it hasn't been working. Hopefully bringing in a lower Southland foe will result in better opportunities. Or better chances to find ways to lose...Stephen F Austin 21, SUU 14.

Lehigh (Patriot) at UCD---After holding their own against a resurgent Cal team and looking somewhat lost against a Pioneer League squad, the Aggies bring in a team from the east for their home opener. Maybe an easier time for things...UCD 38, Lehigh 14.

WSU at Nevada (FBS Mtn West)---Just two weeks ago, the Wildcats held a Mountain West team to 6 points. Their defense seems strong but can they do it again and get the offense back on track, like they did last week?...Nevada 21, WSU 16.

A defense like Weber can keep us in check but not one that gives up 34 to SELA. If they do I’ll give them all the credit in the world but I think if JSU wins this it will either be a shootout with both teams in the 40’s+ or we turn it over a bunch.

We also should get 6’4” 320 lb Keith Moore back at DT this week which should free up our edge guys a bit. The safeties do need to get better at over the top help and closing quicker in the flats tho.

SFA 28-38 SuutahThe T-Birds got handled by UNI, while the Lumberjacks are coming off a DII loss :?

Sam Houston 28-30 NoDakKetteringham is still out, but NoDak's home-field advantage is sizable

I picked the wrong team in the SFA/SUU overtime thriller. Another 11-1 week, puts me at 33-3 so far.

Missed EWU and SUU.

Given EWU's lack of fielding a defense this year, I'm starting to like our chances against them in 3 weeks.

We’re already missing some bullets and the depth isn’t there yet. We did contain JSU fairly well though in regards to yardage and keep Cooper under 50% completions but our secondary is a concern.

Was hoping for the "so there's a chance" Dumb and Dumber meme but I guess that works to.
