    YSU will have the same problems again - weak at QB, exceptionally weak at OL and will be missing some key D players. Recruiting has not gone well so far for YSU. Looking at YSUs schedule ,they have easy games at 2,3, & 4 which may make them look better against subpar competition. This game however will be too much for their inexperience, lesser talent and weak coaching early.

    Samford, who just finished 6-5, will be the favorite with lots of returning starters over YSU who finished 4-7. Neutral field is still in Alabama, giving them a near home game. As an opener, it should be competitive early, but Bulldogs should take this one.

    Nevah. If I had to guess, considering it seats 21k total, and they held between 13000-13500, if you put the median at 13250, that would be more of a fair bet. I think this, with Samford being 1.5 hours away and holding 6.5k, I don't think this game hits 13250, but I do think it can get to 10k.

    “3/4 empty stadium” means attendance of < 6,250 in the 25,000 seat Cramton Bowl in Montgomery, AL

    13,500 attended last year’s Kickoff Classic in the same venue with JaxSt vs. NC AT&T
    12,952 attended the 2017 game in the same venue with JaxSt vs. Chattanooga

    Samford averaged 5,426 at Home in 2018 with a largest crowd of 8,717 (including FUBeAR) in a Stadium that is 88 miles from the Cramton Bowl.

    The game is ‘produced’ by the Camellia Bowl, which is owned & operated by ESPN Events, a Division of ESPN, and they have a nice website: https://www.guardiankickoffclassic.com/

    Attendance at this year’s Camellia Bowl game between GaSou & E. Michigan was 17,710.

    FUBeAR will, confidently, take the OVER.
