    Big Sky Predictions 10-14

    5-1 last week, and not having faith in the conference when NAU went up against Illinois State was the only blemish on the slate. That put me at 38-14 for the year so far. A little bit better, but still would like to get a perfect weekend. Five games on the docket this weekend with Cal Poly, Northern Colorado and UC-Davis taking the week off. Here is my shot at perfection.

    ISU at SAC---The Bengals took one on the chin last week and now hit the road against a well rested Hornet team that had last week off. Is this what is meant by the term "Griz Hangover"?...SAC 34, ISU 20.

    MSU at EWU---Perhaps the game of the week in the conference. The Bobcats were never really challenged last week while the Eagles had grind out a tough road win. Now they are at home...EWU 31, MSU 24.

    UND at UM---The Hawks shook off their injuries to get a home win last week, while the Grizzlies earned a tough road conference win. Have the Hawks turned a corner, or will the Grizzlies pile on more misfortune...UM 34, UND 21.

    NAU at PSU---The Lumberjacks looked sharp against the Missouri Valley last week and now hit the road against a snake-bit Vikings team that still seems like they can't get out of their own way...NAU 38, PSU 21.

    SUU at WSU---Exactly how good are the Thunderbirds? They seem to be up, then down, then back up again. But one thing for sure, the Wildcats are pretty good and they had an extra week to prepare...WSU 45, SUU 17.

    Montana St. 28-38 EWU The Bobcats match up reasonably well, but they've still lost 12 of the last 14 meetings

    NAU 30-22 Portland St. PSU is the Big Sky's version of that one team that plays everyone tough but always loses

    Idaho St. 31-38 Sac State Will we finally get a clue as to whether Sac is good or not?

    Suutah 17-34 Weber SUU may not be consistent, but Weber is

    NoDak 27-45 Montana UND showed some fight last week, but they'll have real trouble with UM's receivers

    BYE 65-7 UC Polyrado BYE loves kicking teams while they're down

    Jalmond trusts Weber. I fear we may lose.
    When losing by 18 is encouraging and an improvement, you know you're bad.

    Gee, that score looks awfully familiar.

    Two straight weeks PSU has had a chance to cut it to 8 on a late touchdown, so 8 points seems like a pretty good pick here as well.

    Thanks for the work JALMOND.

    Sac over ISU- SAC's at home, rested and a pretty well rounded team.
    EWU over MSU- Don't think that MSU's offense is balanced enough to outscore EWU.
    UM over UND- UND may be on the comeback trail but UM is pretty good team.
    NAU- Haven't seen them play but last weeks win was good.
    WSU over SUU- WSU is solid and well rounded.

    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.

    ISU 31 at SAC 32--- Home field advantage wins this game.

    MSU 24 at EWU 28--- MSU keeps EWU below their scoring average

    UND 17 at UM 35--- I do not give UND much of a chance in Missoula.

    NAU 21 at PSU 24--- PSU earns their first W of the season. NAU is brought back to earth after last weeks win over Ill State.

    SUU 24 at WSU 38--- The BBQ pulls away in the fourth quarter. I wonder what BBQ'ed thunderbird taste like?

    Isu @ sac I'll go with Isu this is the kind of game they need to win if Phen is truly changing the culture in Pokey
    Msu@EWU Msu has a great defense up front however I think their db's get a workout in this one. Msu will try ball control, will keep score lower
    Und@ UM Griz win a close one. This is not the UND team that played a few weeks ago, they are adjusting to injuries and putting things together.
    nau @ psu Psu too good to go winless portland funky place to play. Taking Psu in close one.
    Suu @ wsu Wildcats most consistent team in league Wsu by 10
