Looks like this year will be another one in which the Valley chews on itself. What are the opinions (and hopes) of the Jackrabbit fans for this weekend's four conference games?

Missouri State at SDSU
Indiana State at Southeern Illinois
NDSU at UNI
Illinois State at USD

Local small colleges having regional appeal:
Minnesota at Iowa
Wisconsin at Nebraska


Prior to Saturday, we can make wisecracks that NDSU is winless in the conference this season. After Saturday, when NDSU gets on the bus from its first conference tilt in Cedar Falls, will we say the same? Youngstown and Western Illinois each have the weekend off. Youngstown next plays 10/6/12 at NDSU and WIU plays 10/6/12 at USD. Here are my picks:

Missouri State at SDSU BY 17 Jackrabbits are all business in this one, knowing MSU has talent and is desperate.
Indiana State at Southern Illinois BY 7. Shakir Bell gets on track again and SIU continue to show it can stumble.
NDSU at UNI WINS 21-17. We'll find out if UNI is one of the real deals in the Valley.
Illinois State at USD BY 21. For selfish reasons (Illinois State likely will contend for a playoff spot), I'd like to see USD add another banner beneath the cross-stich Home Sweet Dome hanging from the ceiling but I don't see that happening.

Local small colleges having regional appeal:
Minnesota at Iowa -- BY 10, bucking the tradition of the worst team winning the I-35 traveling trophy, Floyd of Rosedale. This win will finally turn the hearts of the remaining few who doubt Coach Kill.
Wisconsin at Nebraska. -- Bucky by 7 but this game is a hard one to pick. Wisco is missing a cylinder but Nebraska continues to be suspect in my book. Can we allow a tie?

Missouri State at SDSU by 2 scores
Indiana State at Southern Illinous home crowd assists a 3 pt win.
NDSU at UNI NDSU D allows only 2 scores, while their O scores, well...more than twice.
Illinois State at USD It'll be closer than last years 28-3 score, but not much.

Don't care about the other two games listed.

Missouri State at SDSU Jacks run and pass to 34 pts. Bears discover SDSU defense is tougher than stats.
Indiana State at Southeern Illinois - Trees get Bell back into the O, and get the W.
NDSU at UNI - Panthers are backed into their home den, Have to win out to make the play-offs. This is about a flip em game.
Illinois State at USD - Welcome to the MVFC Yotes.

Local small colleges having regional appeal:
Minnesota at Iowa - Gophs will be playing in a bowl this season. Iowa, not.
Wisconsin at Nebraska Go for my MS aluma mater.

So at 1-4 now, does UNI fall out of the top 25 for probably the first time in a long time? You can't possible keep a 1-4 team in the top 25 can you?

The answer is no...no they won't, I have a feeling. (not that I want less MVC teams in the top 25).

IMO,they shouldn't be ranked but i bet they are.
