    #2 North Dakota State @ #7 Youngstown St

    Quite possibly the two best defenses in the country. Might have to go with a BigRed prediction.

    NDSU 4-2 2OTs

    I think most Bison backers are not expecting to go undefeated. Thinking this is the one that gets away. 'Guins are due to win a close one.

    Re: #2 North Dakota State @ #7 Youngstown St

    From an outside observer standpoint, NDSU has played a relatively light schedule thus far apart from an impressive win against EWU. In that way, you could say that NDSU has done all they can...blow out everyone in their wake. YSU looks impressive in spite of two losses to good football teams.

    Should be a good game either way. I don't know who to pick. The style of play for both teams (and the MVFC in general) is for close games, and though YSU may be less "rusty" having played better opponents the last couple of weeks, NDSU is still NDSU.

    This is the *real* game of the week in my opinion. Gameday should have come to this one.

    Two things happened last Saturday to YSU -- their D got exposed and the QB situation was on full display. Both were part of my evaluation at projecting them to finish 7-4 (and maybe worse if injuries occur) in preseason.

    NDSU is who they are. I don't think this game is in doubt. Bison

    Had YSU won, they said they would have gone here since it would have been 2 top 3 teams going at it.

    That's fine with me... now they won't give the rapist recruiter an interview on the Gameday set.

    Consequently, this is the 2nd time in 4 years that YSU pissed away a Gameday opportunity with NDSU coming to town. Going into the weekend of 11/9 in 2013 YSU was 8-1 (only loss was to Michigan St) and NDSU was 9-0. YSU lost by 2 at UNI that weekend and NDSU won but had they both won Lee Fitting said that Gameday would've been there on 11/16/13.

    NDSU wins this one 28-10.

    Bo blows up on the sideline as is tradition.

    Having watched a bunch of games from both teams
    - Easton Stick and Streveler are similar QB's. Stick is a better runner and thrower. Streveler takes more risks. YSU will struggle to stop Stick. I've been seeing him make changes at the line like Wentz.

    - YSU offensive play calling is suspect. NDSU is significantly better vs last year.

    - YSU QB can be a liability. If YSU can get a better QB they would be harder to beat.

    Overall talent also favors NDSU. If you stop the RB's stick will kill you. Defense is stifling. All games NDSU had played they could've run up 80 points, probably only 60 vs EWU. So the real question is does NDSU keep passing the eye test? The look the best team in the FCS to me.

    What is the deal with the QB situation? Is someone injured? Wasn't Wells the stud through the playoffs last year?

    This should be a good slobber knocker.
