Playing a home game away from home is a bit unusual, but Ferrum will travel to Franklin County High School to host the Hornets of Shenandoah University. The venue change is due to the installation of the artificial surface at Adams Stadium. Coming off of the tough loss to Emory and Henry, Ferrum continues their non conference schedule against the ODAC. Shenandoah (1-0) comes in off of their season opening win over Gallaudet University.
What I have seen in the Hornets is that over the past few years, they seem to have put a lot of emphasis on the size and speed of both their offensive, and defensive lines. This hurt Ferrum last year, but I look for a better game this year.
I think you will see improvement from Ferrum, and I think you will see an offense that will be better at executing the option. I am hopeful that the defense can match up, but I am concerned about the ability to stop the run. Look for a better effort, but I don;t see a win just yet.
Other predictions still to come
