    Default 10/20 Pick 'em

    Who could have guessed what happened on Saturday, 10/13. Only one favored team, the JACKRABBITS, won as predicted. RowdyRabbit was a little more proficient at guessing than most. How will he do this week? Will he put his hex on NDSU?

    Here are the MVFC matchups for October 20:
    SDSU (5-1) at UNI (1-5)
    NDSU
    (5-1) vs USD (1-5) in Sioux Falls – home game for USD?
    Missouri State (1-5) at Illinois State (6-1)
    Southern Illinois (4-3) at Youngstown State (4-2)
    Indiana State (5-2) at Western Illinois (3-3)

    If you want to keep guessing, here are some less-important schools in the region:
    Minnesota (4-2) at Wisconsin (5-2)
    Nebraska (4-2) at Northwestern (6-1)
    Penn State (4-2) at Iowa (4-2)

    Good luck!

    SDSU (5-1) at UNI (1-5). Yeah, it's the Panther homecoming but the pollsters, apparently relatives of UNI coaches and player, will finally have to give it up: Jacks by 14.
    NDSU
    (5-1) vs USD (1-5) in Sioux Falls – home game for USD? Personally, I'd like to see USD win this one.
    Missouri State (1-5) at Illinois State (6-1) and it won't be close.
    Southern Illinois (4-3) at Youngstown State (4-2). This one should be close...I'll with SIU by a whisker (Lennon's 'stache).
    Indiana State (5-2) at Western Illinois (3-3). Shakir Bell returns to early-season production.


    Minnesota (4-2) at Wisconsin (5-2). My preference is Minnesota but Wisconsin at home will be too much. Bucky by 10.
    Nebraska (4-2) at Northwestern (6-1). Nebraska is still capable of giving games away. And they do in Evanston on Saturday.
    Penn State (4-2) at Iowa (4-2). Tough call...

    SDSU (5-1) at UNI (1-5) I just have a really bad feeling about this game. Perhaps I need to stop remembering past years at UNI.
    NDSU (5-1) vs USD (1-5) Banged up or not, NDSU isn't going to lose two in a row.
    Missouri State (1-5) at Illinois State (6-1) USD might've been MSU's only win.
    Southern Illinois (4-3) at Youngstown State (4-2) Tough one, SIU is playing good ball right now. I'll take YSU at home.
    Indiana State (5-2) at Western Illinois (3-3) Wouldn't mind an ISU-B loss, but it isn't gonna happen.

    I see Rowdy is betting against the Jacks this week! Ouch! Hope the tea leaves he was reading were nothing more than maple leaves tossed about in this morning's wind. Catrabbit is gamblin' with his picks of USD and Missouri State. What does Catrabbit know that the rest of us don't know? Will it be another very interesting weekend in the Valley? If I had to guess on 'upsets that could happen', I think I would follow Catrabbit and pick USD but not sure I'd pick Missouri State. USD has some players that can be difference-makers. Will Powell is a great receiver. He hasn't really shined this year but maybe this will be his big game against a nicked-up NDSU defense.

    Jacks
    Bison
    Redbirds
    Sycs
    Penguins

    Badgers
    Wildcats
    Hawkeyes

    The porous D of UNI will get shredded by the Jacks. Look for 2 long Z squared TD scampers, and a couple of nice Sumner TD passes. If AS avoids throwing TD passes the wrong way, Jacks D will squash the Panthers.

    USD is one screwed pooch. Better get a better crowd at Howard Wood than the capacity of the dome. Maybe Yotes will do the SDSU game at Howard Wood next year....

    Best (tightest) game will be in Youngstown. Time for YSU to get back to winning, to make the SDSU game the following week a FCS game of the week.
