2017 GRIDIRON PICK'EM - Week 8

Post by AGinNEIowa » October 15th, 2017, 4:33 pm

WEEK 8 deadline is 10am on Saturday

Preferred Entry method - Enter your Picks on GOOGLE DOCS, WEEK 8 GAMES Entry Sheet

Secondary Entry method - reply to this thread with each game picked (either retype game # and team - or copy/paste the games and bold the winner - prefer bold, rather than just colors, easier to read).


WTHCG - This week's game comes from the Missouri Valley Football Conference and will be the game I'm attending, in support of my daughter who is a cheerleader for the home team. Last week, the MVFC had 4 teams in the top 8 of the FCS Coaches' Poll(#2, #4, #7, & #8) and 2 more in the top 25 (#15 & #17) with 1 more receiving votes. The Youngstown State Penguins are coming off a tough home loss to #2 North Dakota State Bison, taking the 3-time defending champs to OT and a 24-27 score. The Penguins have lost 2 games in OT (week 1 21-28 at Pittsburgh) and are now on a 2-game losing streak after falling at #4 South Dakota Coyotes. The Northern Iowa Panthers are coming off a big win on the road against #7 South Dakota State Jackrabbits by a score of 38-18. The Panthers had been ranked all season long, peaking at #16, but fell from the rankings after Week 6's OT homecoming loss to #17 Western Illinois 29-38. Early in the season, the Panthers lost at Iowa State 24-42 and at Southern Utah 21-24.
