FARGO, ND--I am in the Fargodome for today's game between two of the top three ranked teams in the polls. NDSU is ranked #2 in the latest Gridiron Index Poll (GPI) and Northern Iowa is ranked #3. Georgia Southern is ranked #1 currently but also has a big game this week against Appalachian State, the #6 ranked team in the GPI.
This game should be a defensive struggle if we go by the statistics so far. NDSU is the top ranked scoring defense and UNI is #2.
The two offenses
CEDAR FALLS, IA--I am in Panther country today for the game between the Sycamores (4-1, 2-0 MVFC) and Panthers (3-1, 2-0 MVFC). It is homecoming here in Cedar Falls and are expecting a near sell-out in the UNI-Dome.
Both teams are ranked and this should be a good contest. Indiana State has not between Northern Iowa since 2002 but this year's team likely is the best since that season for Coach Trent Miles.
Coach Mark Farley's Panthers are a point away from being
AMES, IA--Well, I made the hard drive on I-80 then to I-35 to get to Ames. This is a matchup between the Panthers and Cyclones that could be an upset in my opinion.
Temperatures are at 71 degress but with 94% humidity so this non-climate controlled press box is a bit steamy.
This is the 27th time that these two schools have played with UNI winning just once, in 2007. ISU won 27-0 last year.
UNI brings a wealth of experience back with 10 of its top
I am in the UNI Dome right now awaiting the NDSU-UNI game. This is the season opener for UNI, where as NDSU has a game and a win, a big win over a BCS conference foe in Kansas. I just saw the score that Kansas defeated Georgia Southern, who was ranked in the FCS Top 25.
I will take that with a grain of salt for this one as UNI has won the two MVFC games played between these two teams so I think I am in for a good contest tonight.
And need to send a good shotout to
I heard before the game that the Northern Iowa Panthers would be the last team in college football to play their spring game. My boys and I took in this final spring contest. This game was the Offense (Purple) vs. Defense (White). The offense got the best of the defense with a 38-26 win. This game used four 12-minute quarters and a modified scoring format. The defense scored 7 points for interceptions, 3 points for fumble recoveries, and 1 point for defensive stops. The offense used regular
