Big Sky Predictions - Week 5

Postby Mvemjsunpx » Wed Sep 26, 2018 8:30 pm

Montana 34-24 Cal Poly — Kent Baer gets his turn at The Devil's Offense

Portland St. 21-41 IdahoBattle for the basement?

NAU 35-41 Idaho St.Cookus's status is still unknown, so I'll go with The Barn

EWU 38-24 Montana St. — Fun Fact!: Eastern leads the Big Sky in rushing & they're averaging 8.3 ypc

NoDak 31-28 NoCo — Josh Davis ran for 218 on NoCo, so Santiago & Oliveira should go wild… right?

ISU needs this win badly. If they get it, the program becomes relevant again.

Week 2 in the conference season, but this week sees four teams taking a bye. Five games on the docket involving the Big Sky. Some interesting results last week and we'll see how those teams come out this week. In one of the more intriguing matchups, Northern Colorado draws the wild card, North Dakota this week. After the first conference weekend I am at 33-8, hoping for perfection as usual.

EWU at MSU---The Eagles looked strong in the first week at home, but now must go out on the road to hostile territory as they play the Bobcats, who got a nice conference road win in their first game. This has the makings of a great game, but go with the visitors...EWU 38, MSU 28.

UM at CP---The Grizzlies had just enough last week to hold off a strong challenger at their friendly confines. Now they have to go on the road into California to take on the Mustangs who are reeling from a huge road loss in their conference opener. Not much different here...UM 31, CP 21.

North Dakota at UNC---The motto for the season for the Bears so far has been close but not close enough and that includes last weekend when they played good enough for three quarters only to lose in the fourth. They welcome the Hawks who have some questions now...UNC 29, North Dakota 25.

NAU at ISU---Hey, Bengals, where did that performance last week at North Dakota come from? They are now riding a big confidence wave as they bring in the reeling Lumberjacks, who got a good home win last week. Can the Bengals catch the Lumberjacks napping?...ISU 28, NAU 24.

PSU at UI---Some disappointing turn of events for both teams as the Vandals looked pretty bad for most of the game last week and the Vikings looked pretty bad for all of their game. A win for either could jumpstart their season while a loss could end it...UI 38, PSU 21.

North Dakota @ Northern Colorado - North Dakota leads series 16-12 and have won 5 straight.

North Dakota looked impressive in their road win @ Sam Houston State, but then lost at home to Idaho State. Northern Colorado has had a brutal schedule resulting in an 0-4 record. This Bears team might be one of the better winless teams in the nation, but they wont be winless for long.

Bears 31-20

Eastern Washington @ Montana State - Eastern leads the series 31-10 and have won 6 straight.

Montana State's QB issues seem to be working out for them but now they play their 2nd game against a top 10 foe, the last time they did they lost by 31. Eastern Washington looks incredible right now. Could it be that Eastern has finally found a defense and a run game to go along with that passing attack?

Eagles 52-30

Northern Arizona @ Idaho State - NAU leads the series 35-16-1 and have won 10 straight.

Is Cookus back yet? Is he going to return at all this year? NAU has a schedule built to win the Big Sky title, can they take advantage of it? Idaho State is riding high after their win in Grand Forks. Can they keep riding that momentum or is a let down in their future?

Lumberjacks 41-35

Portland State @ Idaho - Idaho leads the series 11-1 and have won 1 straight.

Both of these teams have looked like garbage this season. Portland State has a lot of talented players but for some reason cant seem to gel as a team. Idaho was thought to have FBS talent and would compete right away, but it seems half of the team has given up just as much as their fanbase has.

Idaho 28-17

Montana @ Cal Poly - Montana leads the all time series 15-5, BUT Cal Poly has won 3 straight.

It's time to find out what Montana is really made of. Are they for real or has the home friendly schedule they've played so far made them look like more than they are? Cal Poly seems like they are better than last year but their schedule has been absolutely brutal.

Grizzlies 31-20

4-1 this week. Idaho State came through for me, but Northern Colorado could not. 37-9 for the year.

Big Sky Predictions - Week 5

Postby css75 » Sat Sep 29, 2018 9:35 pm

I went to the ISU game today. They actually have a defense this year. NAU has an excellent secondary, ISU did not pass well, but gained over 300 on the ground. NAU scores on td on a blocked punt and was set up for another td by a 12 yard punt. Needless to say ISU needs to work on punting. NAU gained over 300 in the air but under 100on the ground.

Great day, looking forward to Vandals going to the Quonset hut next week.

Heading into this week, ISU was one of two BSC teams ranked in the top 50 in total defense.
