Ferrum travels Saturday to take on ODAC foe Shenandoah in the first of two night games this season. The Hornets are coming off of a 26-16 win over Stevenson College, while the Panthers are looking for their first win.
Judging by statistics, Shenandoah used a solid running game to out pace Stevenson, gaining 254 yards on the ground. Look for this to be the mainstay of their attack. It is noted however that Shenandoah did pass for over 180 yards, and as Ferrum seemed somewhat weak against the pass last week....(giving up 379 yards) you can expect some shots down field via air mail.
I expect all phases of Ferrum's game to show improvement this week, but I do not look for the Hornets to go quietly. Overall, I think Ferrum will be too much for SU, but it may take a come from behind effort to prove me right.
Last Week's predictions-
For week one, I was 7-1, only missing the North Carolina Wesleyan game. I think they will be an interesting team to watch. Here are my predictions for week 2:
Ferrum 33 Shenandoah 17
CNU @ Hampden-Sydney
Averett @ Randolph- Macon
Greensboro @ Bridgewater
Millsaps @ LaGrange
Emory and Henry @ Maryville
Methodist @ Guilford
North Carolina Wesleyan @ Southern Virginia University
