Here is the selected slate for week #7. All matchups feature both teams in the AGS Top 25 or ORV. There are a few other intrigue games this week that were not selected, but they were left off of this list in lieu of the "Other" option.
#12 Northern Iowa @ #1 North Dakota State - The "not a rivalry" rivalry game.
#5 Villanova @ #2 James Madison - The Wildcats have been a surprise early in the season...they should no longer surprise anyone. The Dukes look to assert their hold on the CAA.
#3 South Dakota State @ #15 Youngstown State - Can the Jackrabbits control their destiny and not slip up in a game they are favored to win? Can the Penguins continue to show they belong in the discussion with the top half of the MFVC and produce a statement win?
#31 Sac State @ #6 Montana State - The Hornets are for real. The Bobcats are for real. This game could help the Bobcats inch closer to securing a playoff seed, or it could help raise the stature of the Hornets in the discussion as Big Sky contender.
#28 Southeast Missouri State @ #24 Austin Peay - Battle to remain undefeated in the OVC and one game closer to a conference title.
#34 Yale @ #27 Dartmouth - Three Ivies appear a cut above the rest, yet there is little distinction between them...until now.
