Looks like WIU has given up 11 sacks in two games so far. MSU should get another half dozen or more, which makes me think they can disrupt the passing game, force lots of punts, get great field position, and score on short fields. If the Cats can pressure the QB like they did last weekend AND continue to protect the football, I think it's 45-12 Bobcats.

35-14. Three on the ground, two in the air. Defense gets two takeaways. A much more conservative game plan 450 total yardage. I will also be there with a newly recruited Cat fan so you can add two towards the crowd energy.

35-17 Cats.
Cats win comfortably but I don’t anticipate a complete blowout.

I’d be surprised if Ifanse plays, and if he does it’ll be minimal. Even if he is cleared from whatever his issue was last game, why risk beating him up more against a non conference opponent that they should be able to beat without him? Choate and staff are looking at the big picture and Ifanse needs to be healthy down the stretch.

There are enough weapons in the backfield to still run well, but the run game will take a bit of a hit without Ifanse.

Cat defense will dominate again though with 5 sacks and an INT.

I see this as being a much closer game than the blowouts some are predicting here. WIU will be playing their home opener and are desperate for a win, so I think they'll be able to keep the game competitive - especially if MSU doesn't clean up the special teams mistakes and costly penalties that hurt them last week. But MSU is clearly the more talented team and that should win out in the end.

With game being Leathernecks's home opener, they make enough plays (including a return or TO) to keep it close at halftime. In 2nd half, Bobcat "D" clamps down and Bobcat Offense grinds away for 2 long, time consuming drives, putting up 2 TDs.

If this game is closer than 2 tds when all is said and done, I think we didn’t play well at all. Guess we’ll talk about it Saturday night.

Cats won’t feel threatened. Kicking the snot out of ranked teams will translate into cruising easily in games like this.
