Could be a pivotal game for both teams as WCU will be coming off a road game at Vandy and GWU coming off a home opener against D2 Mars Hill. The odds would be that Western comes into the game at 0-1 and GWU 1-0. WCU to show continued improvement doesn't need to start 0-2 in OOC games and GWU to build momentum for an improved season needs to steal a game on the road in OOC games. With GWU having NC State and Buffalo later in the season, WCU is a huge opportunity to try and get one. I watched WCU play at Wofford and Elon last season and the Cats play was better than the Final Scores indicated. They moved the ball well but mistakes kept them out of the end zone too many times to contest for the win. GWU is returning around 17 or more starters and have a stout D against the run but the Cats throw the ball well with Jaynes. WCU should be favored but GWU can win it if the Offense puts points on the board and avoids crucial mistakes.
