Fifth week forecast

No. 17 Montana Western vs. RV Montana Tech: Bulldogs 35, Ordiggers 31

Western seems to have made its transfer, successful its final three video games by at the least 21 factors.

Frontier’s second highest assault (31 ppg) will probably be examined towards a Tech protection that solely permits 13.7 factors and 234 yards per sport.

In addition to C of I, Tech is the one different crew to common higher than 400 yards per sport offensively behind Jet Campbell who has eight complete touchdowns in three video games.

Evidently this should be a matter of excessive levels and that the West has aggressively explosive tendencies.

No. 25 reverse MSU-Northern Rocky Mountain Faculty: Battlin’ Bears 42, Lights 7

Rocky Mountain can do that by air with Nate Dick and on land with Zaire Wilcox (and Dick). Battlin’ Bears captured Tech for a High 25 win this previous weekend, and so they should not have issues with the 0-3 North crew edging out 122-15.

Battlin’ Bears takes the sphere earlier than the Rocky Mountain Faculty Battlin’ Bears sport towards Faculty of Idaho Yotes at Rocky Mountain Faculty in Billings on Saturday, September 3, 2022.

Mike Clark, Billings Gazette

No. 11 Faculty of Idaho vs. Jap Oregon: YUTS 31, mountaineers 17

The C of I boasted the very best nationwide rating since April of final 12 months heading into a house sport towards an EOU crew that just about stumbled Carroll.

Defensively, C of I is just like Carol in that he offers up so much on the bottom, so count on the Mountaineers to stay to quarterback Carson Bohning and heavy assault.

Highly effective attacking can transfer the ball towards Utes, as Southern Oregon did final week, and their protection hasn’t been identified to pressure a turnover but (two out of three).

Nevertheless, C of I has the most effective assault within the convention (31.3 ppg, 448.7 ypg), so followers may even see a repeat of final weekend the place Yotes trailed SOU within the third quarter earlier than scoring 21 factors within the fourth.

RV Carroll vs. Southern Oregon: Saints 21, Raiders 20

Don’t be shocked if the fourth quarter decides the winner of this sport.

Every of the final three matches between these two applications had been decided by three factors or much less, two or had been practically equivalent one level wins within the SOU separated by two calendar years.

It took further time to find out the winner of this sport a 12 months in the past, and Carroll’s victory this season was a one-stop resolution.

The Saints appear to have discovered their operating sport (270 yards towards an EOU) and the Raiders permit practically 200 yards to sprint per sport.

Blake Asciutto seems to be a SOU man underneath place and has some massive taking part in objectives for Christian Graney and Bryce Goggin.

Anticipate one other shut competitors, but it surely seems like Carroll’s flip will probably be on the appropriate facet to win by one level.
