After a twenty point win over CNU, the Huntingdon Hawks come to W.B. Adams stadium for the first time, with a record of 4-2 overall, and 3-1 in the conference. Their lone conference loss came at the hands of Methodist. The Hawks are averaging just over 40 points per game, with their lowest point total being 29 in their second game of the season. This was a win against Birmingham Southern. This team will throw the ball, and very successfully. The DB's will have their hands full today. Pressure on their quarterback will be imperative.
Look for things to get somewhat easier in the second half of the season, but that may not start today. Ferrum will need to be successful on defense to give their offense a a chance to put up points. The offense is needing a breakout game, and while Ferrum does have some good offensive tools, I would say today will be an uphill climb. Better times are coming Ferrum, hang in there.
As for the rest of the conference:
Maryville @ Greensboro
Methodist @ LaGrange
CNU @ Averett
Looks like this week may favor the visitors. North Carolina Wesleyan is open this week.
