This week, Ferrum is back in action as they host the Averett Cougars. Averett comes into the contest with a 1-5 record, and winless in conference play. With their records very similar, one may think these teams are about equal. I would think not. Overall, I think Ferrum will possess more offensive fire power, and will again show more improvement where the defense is concerned. Look for the week off, and the fact that the Panthers are playing at home to be a boost their game plan. I see this one as a big win. A win which will keep Ferrum in the playoff picture.
As for other games, there are two that should keep your attention. Huntingdon travels to LaGrange. This could be a barn burner, and could have far reaching conference implications. A loss by Huntingdon would remove them from the ranks of the conference unbeaten.
Also pay careful attention to the Maryville @ CNU game. Another game that could impact conference standings. A win by the Captains would give Maryville their first conference loss, and there would be a logjam at the top of the conference.
