Ferrum @ Maryville

Saturday, Ferrum travels to Tennessee to take on the Maryville College Scots. With Maryville only having lost one game, and coming off of an impressive road win at CNU, It may look like tough sledding for the Panthers, but in the words of ESPN's Lee Corso, "Not So Fast". Ferrum is in a really good position, and I will tell you why. With Maryville having just won at CNU (which I am sure was regarded as one of their toughest games on the schedule), it may be tough to generate the emotion necessary, and it is also possible that they will look past a team with only 2 wins.  It is possible they will "count their chickens before they hatch"
Also, Ferrum is coming into its own. With Huntingdon losing last week to LaGrange, and riding a two game winning streak, Ferrum should have plenty of momentum for this game. Do not get me wrong, Maryville is likely considered the favorite. This however means nothing until the final whistle blows.
Ferrum is showing a marked improvement on defense, and I have been really impressed with the offense acceleration, both on the ground and through the air. I am not counting Ferrum out of this one. Most statistical comparisons are favoring the Scots, but call it a gut feeling.....I am looking for an upset.
