MVFC Games:
12:00 PM - South Dakota State (4-2, 2-2 MVFC) at Illinois State (5-2, 2-2 MVFC), ESPN3
1:00 PM - Indiana State (3-4, 1-3 MVFC) at Youngstown State (3-4, 2-2 MVFC), ESPN+
2:00 PM - North Dakota State (7-0, 4-0 MVFC) at South Dakota (3-4, 2-2 MVFC), ESPN+
2:00 PM - Southern Illinois (1-6, 0-4 MVFC) at Missouri State (4-3, 2-2 MVFC), ESPN+

Also, just found out that Indiana State's top RB Ja'Quan Keys suffered a season (career) ending hip injury in last week's game against SIU. It's crazy because he was in to the end of the game, playing, walking around...a little oddly at times...but didn't seem like anything serious: https://gosycamores.com/news/2018/10/23 ... njury.aspx
This pretty much kills Indiana State's chances of any more wins this year...Keys was BY FAR the best thing they had going offensively. He was sitting at #2 in the FCS in rushing yards, #2 in rushing TDs, and #3 in rushing yards per game.

Other Games:
Thursday (10/25) at 6:30 PM - #25 Appalachian State (5-1) at Georgia Southern (6-1), ESPNU...there you go letsgonecks
11:00 AM - #20 Wisconsin at Northwestern, FOX
12:00 PM - Eastern Illinois (2-6) at Eastern Kentucky (3-4), ESPN+
2:00 PM - Weber State (5-2) at North Dakota (5-2), last year's playoff opponent vs future MVFC member and the winner gets a decent shot at/near the to of the Big Sky
2:30 PM - Illinois at Maryland, BTN
2:30 PM - #18 Iowa at #17 Penn State, ESPN
2:30 PM - Northern Illinois (4-3) at BYU (4-3), ESPNU
3:00 PM - UC Davis (6-1) at Montana (4-3)
4:30 PM - Montana State (4-3) at Idaho State (4-3)

So who did need or want to win some of these conferences games or doesn't it really matter since we just need to win.

Also Scott, have you thought of including Arizona St? or don't people really care

Us winning out gets us in the playoffs. I'm about 99% sure of that.
Beyond that, it's highly unlikely that a 6-5 record gets us in this year, but what we'll need is other "bubble" teams around the FCS to lose to either teams that have pretty much already locked up a spot in the playoffs, or to teams that are so far out that one more win won't get them in. It's still a little early to know who exactly that's going to be though, so for know, it's "just win, baby".

I hadn't really thought about Arizona State personally, but if people are interested in info about them, I can include it too.
They're currently 3-4 overall and 1-3 in the conference and play at USC tomorrow at 2:30 PM on ABC (looks like nationally, it's showing up on my tv listings) and ESPN2.

Scott, have you seen South Dakota play this year? Are pretty down this yeat?
I guess Indiana St isn't dead after losing their RB
I bet the Missouri St coach really threw a fit after today's game.
