Its already week 5? Well the season really seems to be flying by. Today Ferrum (1-2), travels to Maryville TN. to challenge Maryville College (0-3). The Scots are coming into this game after three difficult contests. From this, I look for Mryville to be fired up in front of their home crowd. They will look at Ferrum as a game they can and should win. It's possible, and I think Ferrum has to stay focused, but should win. Maryville seems to be weakest against the run. (Hard to believe as last year they virtually shut the Panthers running game down...only 31 yards on the ground).
Today, look for Ferrum to try to dominate on the ground. If they are successful, it may be a long day for the Scots. If however Ferrum has a difficult time on the ground, look for this to be a closer game. If it's close, it could come down to special teams.....Oh by the way, the weather forecast calls for 10-20 mph winds.
