Ferrum has its open date this week, so this will mean a chance to rest those who are injured, and an extra week to prepare for Averett. Since Ferrum has made a jump in the conference standings (from last to fifth), I thought I would check out the conference schedule and see what scenarios may be most beneficial to the Panthers.
Huntingdon @ Greensboro- I do not expect much of a contest here, but stranger things have happened. A win by the Pride would be huge for Ferrum, but don't bet the ranch....or 50 cents for that matter.
Methodist @ Averett- Given the fact that the Monarchs just dealt CNU their first loss, I am not looking for much of a game here either, but keep your fingers crossed for the home team. Not looking for a miracle, but it too would help Ferrum. Go Cougars!
Maryville @ LaGrange- A battle of two teams with perfect conference records. This could be a coin flip, but either way, one of them gets a conference loss, and Ferrum will still have to beat both of them.
North Carolina Wesleyan @ CNU- This will be a blow out. After coming off of a loss, Look for CNU to run up the score. No contest, but we can hope for divine intervention. A CNU loss, would make it difficult for them to make the playoffs.
Ferrum will be getting ready for Averett, but watching to see how things shake out this week. It could be interesting should an upset or two occur.
