For Ferrum, a loss from here on out may spell disaster. So looking toward the game with CNU, I began wondering what they will offer up against the Panthers. Here is what I know about the Captains:
Their overall record is 3-4, just like Ferrum, but while Ferrum's losses have come from Emory and Henry, Southern Virginia University, Bridgewater, and NCW, the Captains losses have come from #3 Wesley, Salisbury, Frostburg State, and Averett.
Christopher Newport is coming off of a big win against Greensboro, but they have had their periods of looking less than stellar. In reviewing their stats, it appears that they do not have the same efficiency at running the ball that they had with Tunde Ogun. Most of their yards are coming through the air, and I would look for them to pass often, usually with short patterns underneath. Below is a listing of both teams statistical rankings for the nation and the conference.
