For the last time this season, Ferrum will board the bus as their schedule takes them to Rocky Mount North Carolina to play the 1-8 Battling Bishops of North Carolina Wesleyan.
Both teams are coming off losses, and for the Bishops, they are playing their last game at home. On the surface, this is a winnable game for Ferrum, but it is also one that is in no way a sure thing. NCW has an offense that can move the ball, and put points on the board. They are averaging 22ppg, and 148 rushing yards per game. They are also averaging 216 yards through the air. This could be one of the closest games of the season, and literally could go either way. I look for a lot of points to be put up, but believe Ferrum's defense will prevail in slowing their ground game, and that the Ferrum offense will have just a little more talent. It is a tough game to call, but I give Ferrum the edge....may be a last minute field goal.
In the other games, I see it this way.
