Last week sucked (thanks a lot, Ejoebarry...), so let’s move on. This week the Wolfpack plays it’s first home game against what should be an over-matched Marshall squad. Back again with pregame predictions are the BTP staff (at least those of us who were able to wander our way out of the drunken rage-induced stupor from last week in time to submit our picks this week). Each BTP contributor provides their score prediction below, plus a Twitter-esque 140 character-constrained comment on their predicted outcome. Here we go again!
Prediction: 41-17 (W)
Comment: “The Pack can't do what they did last year and let one crushing loss hang over them for a couple weeks, even against a bad Marshall team”
Prediction: 45-10 (W)
Comment: “State's offense can score; Marshall's can't. Game should be well in hand midway through the third quarter”
Prediction: 38-20 (W)
Comment: “Offense will keep rolling and defense will give up a frustrating number of points”
Prediction: 52-14 (W)
Comment: “State's offense will dominate, and they'll even make a field goal. Maybe that's too bold...”
Prediction: 48-13 (W)
Comment: “I'd like to say it's 6 TDs and 2 FGs, but it may well be 7 TDs and a missed XP. Either way, this game is over by halftime”
Prediction: 49-3 (W)
Comment: “Gonna be a lot of anger taken out on Marshall. Pack rolls.”
Prediction: 38-16 (W)
Comment: "A veteran team should regroup quickly; if they don't we got bigger problems than we thought."
