Friday, September 2nd:
LAFAYETTE @ Central Connecticut - A decent test for Lafayette, and I hope they prove me wrong. CCSU isn't terrible, the 'Pards go on the road, and -- based on what I have read -- LC seems to already be banged up heading into week one. It's hard to pick a 1-10 team in 2015 to win this one.
COLGATE @ Syracuse - I really think Colgate can keep this close for a while, but their defense won't be able to slow down the Orange. They'll be able to move the ball, though.
Saturday, September 3rd:
FORDHAM @ Navy - Don't think this will be competitive at all, and would be surprised if Navy doesn't win by 3+ scores.
Monmouth @ LEHIGH - If Lehigh is a supposed contender in the PL this season, they have to win this game...and they do.
Davidson @ GEORGETOWN - The Hoyas probably won't win a game in the PL this year, but Davidson is closer to a NESCAC team than D1...Georgetown wins easily.
HOLY CROSS @ Morgan State - I don't think I have seen one pick for Morgan State, and that worries me just a bit. I think this game may be more competitive than some think, especially considering that Morgan State brings back Herb Walker Jr at RB. All that said, HC's offense is going to put up points this year, and a lot of them. HC by two scores.
BUCKNELL @ Marist - Middle-of-the-pack PFL teams aren't supposed to beat scholarship PL teams.
Back-up SU QB fumbles while handing off to back and Colgate recovers almost midfield. Raiders try to run and go backwards. 4th and 20 and have to punt. 2:26 left in game. Let's see if Orange try to get more.
