    I think this is going to be a very low scoring game. I also think it is going to be a very good game to watch. UNI has their backs against the wall once again.............while Youngstown won a game in October and demonstrated that they can score points in the second half of games this year.

    I say this could be the game of the week. Defensive battle.

    YSU only needs a couple of TD's and they win. UNI is anemic on offense and Farley always overrules his OC.

    UNI usually goes on a late season tear and YSU usually goes on a late season swoon.... problem is it's only mid-season. I still think UNI plays just well enough to pick up a low-scoring win in a slugfest.

    What type of offense is Bo running out there in Youngtown? Can we expect an air attack or ground and pound? Can the QB run at all? I honestly haven't seen Youngstown play at all this year. I would guess if Bo has his way it is a spread attack with a mobile QB since that is all he had at Nebraska.

    They are strong on the ground on both sides of the ball. They don't blow anyone out with huge numbers, but it gets the job done.
    They've got a decent rushing QB (averages 74.8 yards per game running), and a decent RB in Martin Ruiz (78.8 yards per game). None of their receivers average over 40 yards per game, but they do spread it around pretty well. On defense, they have two guys in the top 10 in the FCS in sacks (which means that with Karter Schult, 3 of the top 10 sack leaders in the FCS are playing in this game). DE Derek Rivers is #2 and DE Avery Moss is #8...I'd say they have probably the best d-line in the conference.

    All signs point to a low-scoring defensive battle. Almost to the point where the first team to double-digits wins.

    The QB can run it and he doesn't slide enough. Instead he lowers his shoulder and takes a significant amount of hits. He was concussed at WVU. He is a big QB too. YSU doesn't throw it much, but then again they really haven't had to. When they do throw nearly every pass is to the outside. They haven't thrown over the middle all year. YSU features 3 RB's and they are all good. Webb is a speed back, Ruiz is more of a power back and McCaster is a blend of both.

    The Defense hasn't allowed a rushing TD this year. The DE's are probably the best in the FCS. The LB position is missing a superstar that is suspended this year and I would say they are a little thin there. There is also some inconsistent play at the CB position at times but there is a lot of depth on defense.

    YSU doesn't look anything like the team that played UNI 3 years ago. Not even close.

    Several times when I have talked to former coaches I know from the MVFC the same things keeps coming up - "I will never understand why they don't just line up under center and pound the other team in the front of them. They keep trying to do different things and get in their own way".

    Seems like with those big, Iowa OL you have that running a pro-style TE/FB offense would be pretty good. Instead they run zone-read 40 times a game creating confusion on who will actually get the ball because of what the defense does. UNI's roster is absolutely loaded with talent, blows UND's out of the water.

    They need to spend more time in the weight room.
