Idaho State @ UC-Davis - Battle between two unexpected top teams in the Big Sky, who both took care of business in week 6.
Eastern Washington @ Weber State - Looked to be a battle between the two expected top teams in the Big Sky; however, Weber State looks to rebound after a loss to Northern Arizona in week 6.
East Tennessee State @ Citadel - The Citadel has played Wofford, Chattanooga, and Towson and provides a national barometer for the upstart East Tennessee State team, which is receiving recognition from AGS voters, and by the way, is also a Southern Conference co-leader.
Elon @ Delaware - A test to see how Elon responds after a huge win, as well as to provide a crude head-to-head comparison with NDSU through a common opponent.
Maine @ Rhode Island - Both have been surprise early CAA darlings, and both are looking to be considered "contender" not "pretender". This game is especially important for either team to stay in contention for the CAA title, as both are undefeated in conference play.
James Madison @ Villanova - This game is more about the rebound for James Madison than the matchup against Villanova, after they dropped to 0-3 in the CAA.
Florida A&M @ North Carolina A&T - Battle between the two top teams in the MEAC.
Northern Iowa @ South Dakota - South Dakota is 2-0 in conference, and Northern Iowa played with NDSU for three quarters. Northern Iowa is in their "Dakota" (NDSU, USD, SDSU) stretch and can really only lose two games in this stretch to still be considered for the playoff eligible (7 DI wins). Thus, it looks like @ South Dakota is likely a must-win game for Northern Iowa.
