Ferrum @ North Carolina Wesleyan

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.

Ferrum 38

NCW 36

In the other games, I see it this way.

Huntingdon @ Averett

Methodist @ Greensboro

Christopher Newport @ LaGrange

Go Panthers!

  1. I see that you picked FC to win by 1 which I do agree can be done but it will take more than just scoring to do so. I disagree with your mindset on the defense! Do you have that much faith in that defense?? If so I ask based off of what??? The only 2 wins this season good ole FC played the worst 2 teams in the conference and still gave up points. It wasn't like FC didn't shut them out so now your expecting good ole FC to show up and stop this team?? Now this is not the typical NCW team nor this is a typcial FC team because if it was tragically FC will lose!!

    Well homer, while we do agree on some fronts I don't agree with the final tally.

    NCW: 42
    FC: 35

    FC Might get 1 more win this season to finish at 3-7 and with the rumors flying around the school and local area changes are a coming!!!!
