To predict a Panther victory would be too easy....since both teams are called Panthers, but this week, an unpredictable LaGrange team, that has shown flashes of greatness, rolls into Adams field with getting a win a must if they want a chance to get to the conference championship. Of course, this is a must win for Ferrum also, so both teams have a lot to play for.
LaGrange defeated CNU 20-6 denying the Captains a trip to the end zone the entire game. LC also has lost to Averett, and to Methodist. so what can we expect Saturday?
I look for Ferrum to face the triple option most of the game, and if there is a team that knows the triple option, it's Ferrum. I believe Ferrum is disciplined enough to stop the option, but the home team must be as resolved on defense as LaGrange was against CNU. I look for this to be as tough of a contest as Ferrum has faced all year, but winnable. This could be a high scoring game, and could come down to a special teams play for Ferrum to win....but Ferrum gets the home win.
Ferrum 34 LaGrange 32
