Well, I guess it is time for my prediction:

Montana State 34
Western Illinois 21

At present, we are no match for a quality FCS program...

That's around what I was thinking too, unfortunately. I'd love to be proven wrong, but MSU by ~14 sounds about right.

Flat tire fixed. Home closing completed. Extra keys cut at Walmart.
If my far better half does not have a honeydo list for me yet, I plan to go to game.

PS. MSU plane gets in to MLI at 3:48p. I could kill some time and scout their arrival.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Sad to say i too think it will be a loss.

Anybody have any predictions for attendance. I'm saying maybe 3-4,000. I'm assuming with the 0-2 start there is no real buzz in town for the game. Are they promoting the game very well in the area?

Not really. Most of the stuff I've seen has been through here.

Do they have a 2 deep roster listed anywhere? I don't even know who the 5th or 6th guys up are.

Thanks! I'm confused, though - the RB's they show are two that were hurt last week. Who's behind them? Also didn't see any mention of Age being hurt, and if I remember correctly the TV announcers last week said he had to be helped off the field.

I haven't seen too much about it, but I'm not real well connected with how the students do social media these days. I have noticed that on days that there are home sporting events, there are "yard signs" up around parts of campus that say what (soccer) and when (3 pm). I assume they'll have those up for football game days too.

This is the "Family Weekend" game.

Last year's Family Weekend game drew 4,011.

Leathernecks look to bounce back against the Bobcats in home-opener.

I would expect a low attendance number tomorrow. MHS has a game at 3pm against Harvard (IL) tomorrow, so some students and families who come to WIU games might be at the MHS game instead. Not very good planning on either side.

I think WIU struggles tomorrow. MSU has looked impressive so far this year.

MSU 37
WIU 17

The Macomb vs Harvard football game will be played at Galesburg High School.
