Does EWU realize JSU is east of the Miss?

Literally just the one game. Anything that could possibly make 89 make a trek to Newark (even if he doesn't come, just the fact that he's considering it is historic) has to automatically be the game of the week.

EWU should win by 40, well guess it's a road game, 30.

Yes! We've actually faced lots of east coast teams. Take Illinois State for example.

Went with Torson at Maine. May be a fairly close game between top-10 teams.

Wel,, they better score about 70-80 then. Washington moved the ball at will against EWU. Ok, that was Washington. Mulligan. But Lindenwood put up 31.

JSU’s loss @ SELA put up 481 yds but only 14 points. Win vs UTC put up 509 & 41 points.

This game easily could have over 1k yards offense & 80-90+ points..

As did I..Think the winner of this would be right up there with JMU in any CAA power rankings. 2 biggest CAA games coming into the season:
9/14 TU @ Maine
10/26 TU @ JMU

JMU @ Maine don’t play each other..

It's North Dakota State at Delaware but of course I'll be very interested in watching Alcorn State at McNeese. With this game McNeese will have played the two teams picked to end up in the SWAC championship game.

McNeese got smoked last week but they actually held up well on the line of scrimmage. The problem was that they lost both their starting cornerbacks against Southern and they got burned with big plays in the passing game. Oklahoma State got TD passes of 69, 75, 59, and 69 yards. That and McNeese gave up a pick 6 on their first possession.

It'll be interesting to see how they recover from that. But...as strange as it may seem...I think the players came away feeling good about the way they matched up with Oklahoma State on the line of scrimmage.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth

Picked the EWU game because I'm always interested in the Eagles, but am really interested in Montana @ Oregon

The GAM has Montana +14; O/U 54; Mythical score Oregon 34-20.

5 Dimes will give you Montana +37.5; O/U 67; Mythical score Oregon 52-15

You have to put up 120 for 100.

The under is attractive as well with 5 dimes thinking 67 and a score something like 52-15. We think Montana can do better than that. We didn't put anything on the O/U.

We are taking Montana and 37.5 points on 240 to win 200.

I would be surprised if EWU doesn't win by 14+.

So three of these ended up being barn burners and the other two went as expected. :thumb:

It was a real shame EWU had to lose, but that was certainly the most exciting game.
