Losses for any team this week will make winning the conference almost impossible. The key games...besides the Ferrum vs.Methodist game, is the CNU @Averett game, and the LaGrange @ Maryville game.
Averett, who has only won one game, picked an important one to win. They defeated LaGrange, 14-7. This speaks volumes, as just the next week, LaGrange defeated CNU. Averett, who to me looked marginal against Ferrum to say the least, hosts CNU this week. A win by the Cougars, would be huge, and is not impossible. To me, CNU seems to be struggling with consistency on offense, especially at quarterback. This could be a very good game.
LaGrange travels again this week, this time to Maryville Tennessee. The Scots (3-3), are another team that I think may be flying under the radar. They are 2-1 in the conference, only losing to CNU, while defeating Greensboro, and Methodist. This should be a really good game, and will likely come down to who has the ball last, will win.
This will be a fun weekend.
