#5 Georgia Southern @ #1 North Dakota State, 2012

Rate this Entry
In just over an hour, the rematch will be seen in the Fargodome. A capacity crowd is again expected inside this facility and likely the sound will be the loudest it has been all season as well.

I expect a much closer game than what was seen last year with a 35-7 NDSU win.

The Eagle offense will be able to move the ball at times in this game, I beleive. The Georgia Southern defense is where I see the question marks.

Ball control will likely be in the minds of both teams and believe NDSU will likely try to run the ball a little more than in the past and not allow quarterback Brock Jensen to beat them with another interception return for a touchdown. But I feel NDSU will have to throw it a little bit to keep the Eagle defense offguard.

Like my preview earlier this week, I feel NDSU will pull this one out but will be close. This game likely will go to the final quarter and it will not be a 28 point win this year for the Bison.

I can't wait for the opening kickoff in this one.

    1st & 10 at the NDSU 33. Crockett for 6 on the ground.

    2nd & 4 at the NDSU 39. Pass incomplete.

    3rd & 4 at the NDSU 39. Jensen is sacked by James Dean.

    Punt for NDSU from the 32 and a great punt by Ben LeCompte and a block in the back sends GSU back even further.

    The Eagles will take over at their own 5.

    And that is the end of the 3rd qtr. The Eagles will have it 2nd & 6 at the NDSU 42 when the final qtr starts.

    The Bison defense needs to make a play. The Eagle option game has worked well so far through 3 qtrs aside from the one fumble.

    The Bison defense needs to come up big on this drive with the great punt coverage.
