So what can we expect?
North Carolina Wesleyan is no slouch team to say the least. They sit at 4-4, but had one game on the schedule cancelled due to effects of an early season hurricane. One of their four losses came at the hands of defending national champion Mount Union. They are averaging 418 offensive yards per game, and almost 32 points a game. 230 yards per game, come via the pass.
If they have a weakness, it may be their defense. Opponents are averaging 202 yards per game through the air, and 239 yards on the ground.
This bodes fairly well for Ferrum, especially as the game is at home. Ferrum needs to play a tight defensive passing scheme, and shut down the combination of quarterback Nathan Gardner and receiver Malik Adams. If this duo can be stopped, or at least slowed, and Ferrum can control time of possession, they can close the season with third place in their pocket.
This will be a really good game, and while I would have not thought so early in the season, I see this as a hard fought win for Ferrum, and an excellent end to a very strong season.
