    What are the biggest games in your conference for week 3?

    In the SWAC I would have to say the 3 biggest are:

    1. Jackson State @ Grambling

    2.McNeese State @ Alcorn

    3.Prairie View @ Nicholls State

    2003 SWAC Eastern Division Champions
    2004 SWAC Eastern Division Champions
    2004 SWAC Conference Champions
    2007 Liberty Bowl Champions(Hail State)
    3x 1st Team All SWAC/ 2007 2nd team All-SEC

    Well, the MVFC doesn't start playing each other until the 23rd (ISUr vs MSU), but doesn't fully rolling until week 5.

    If we're just talking games involving teams in the MVFC, gotta go with:
    1. North Dakota at South Dakota - will find out a lot about how good both teams are, plus it's something of a rivalry game.
    2. Illinois State at Eastern Illinois - 106th meeting of this long-played rivalry game. No matter how good or bad each team is that particular year, both teams bring their "A" games. And we'll get a much better read on Illinois State (since they've only played 1 game so far).
    3. Northern Iowa at Southern Utah - UNI still something of a question mark, but you learn a lot from early season matchups with similar-level/ability teams (in this case, both are full-scholarship FCS teams from decently-ranked FCS conferences).

    I agree with that.

    Grambling vs. JSU - Don't count in the SWAC standings but will truly show where each team stand in the SWAC.
    Alcorn vs. McNeese - Battle of the SWAC vs. Southland - Alcorn defense will be tested against McNeese 2 good RBs.
    Prairie View vs. Nicholls - This isn't your daddy's Prairie View and this is not your daddy's Nicholls St.

    Thank Goodness!!! This is going to be a great game.
    Just because you are offended doesn't mean you are right.

    For the Ivies in Week 1 2017:

    Yale at Lehigh
    San Diego at Princeton
    Cornell at Delaware
    Ivy League Football: Since the latter half of the 20th century, slowly self-destructing to become irrelevant in the scene that they used to dominate, not too many fans among the younger generations, rusting their potentials in the process.
    Before, I liked a lot about Harvard football. Now, not so much. They are the main perpetrators of why Ivy League football has lost its popularity and it may never go back to what it used to be.

    SLC Week 3:

    SLU at UCA- Always a tough game home or away. UCA wins and they have SHSU next. A healthy QB and the Lions can get back on track though..

    UIW at SFA- Will CC get back on track? Will the birds get a win? We'll see!

    The MEAC has to start showing we can compete at the FCS level. Last season we were 0-12 against FCS competition (A&T beat Kent State) and I'm not sure any of those games were even close. With that said here are the games we either need to win or make a good showing:

    Howard @ Richmond
    Norfolk St @ JMU
    NC A&T @ Charlotte
    TN State @ FAMU
    BCU @ FAU

    I don't think the SoCon HAS three significant games to be honest. My team, Wofford, isn't even playing a game. Three teams are playing an SEC or ACC team for a check. I guess the most significant game is The Citadel @ ETSU simply because it is the only conference game. But it probably won't be that close of a game...I look for The Citadel to win handily. If forced to pick two more, I'd say UT-Martin @ Chattanooga has the potential to be a good OOC tilt- and it is certainly important for the Mocs as they don't want an 0-3 start. The last pick would be WCU @ Gardner-Webb...it might tell us more about how good the Catamounts are. Then again, it might not. Because we really don't know much about GWU either. But it is an all NC, all FCS game so it has that going for it.

    SLC

    HBU at ACU

    A better than expected Houston Baptist team travels to Abilene Christian for a game that will christen ACU's new 55 million dollar stadium. The match up will mark the conference debut for new Wildcats coach Adam Dorrel, who won an incredible 90 plus percent of his games en route to three national championships at D2 Northwest Missouri State.

    Following two tough road losses against FBS teams, Dorrel's Wildcats are ready to make a statement against "boys their own age." Watch for QB Dallas Sealey to stake a claim as the second best Qb in the SLC,

    Catch it on ESPN 3 at 6 PM. You will be glad you did.

    Other intriguing match ups include

    Prairie View at Nichols and Lamar at Northwestern State. The Prairie View game is more interesting after PV's strong showing against Sam and the Lamar match up should be close. UIW at SFA may top the 100 point mark.
