It's homecoming at Ferrum, and I look for this to be a great weekend for the Panthers. Coming off a disappointing loss at CNU, Ferrum has a chance to get back in the W column as North Carolina Wesleyan comes to town. The Bishops are struggling with a 1-4 record, and statistically are not particularly impressive. Their rushing offense is ranked 226th out of 239 teams. They are ranked 235th in sacks allowed, and 220th in scoring offense. Lastly, they are ranked 225th in sacks.
Conversely, Ferrum's rushing defense is ranked 139th, falling from 70th after the loss to CNU. As far as sacks, Ferrum ranks tied for 127th, and ranks 112th in total defense. Lastly, Ferrum is ranked 10th in the nation for sacks allowed.
I look for this to be a solid win, but NCW is a well coached team, and has a history of being a contender for the conference. Ferrum cannot get over confident, but odds are Ferrum alumni will have a happy homecoming.
