The BTP staff is back again to throw sandwich pickles at the window and see what sticks best. James Madison comes in to this contest having played for the D1-AA/FCS National Championship each of the past two seasons. Despite having to replace some key pieces, this won’t be your typical roll-over lower-level team.
Hopefully y’all remember the deal, but here it is: Each BTP contributor provides their score prediction below, plus a classic Twitter-esque 140 character-constrained comment on their predicted outcome. Let’s get to it!
Prediction: 31-13 (W)
“State overcomes a slow start to pull away and handle the Dukes.”
Prediction: 41-24 (W)
“Biggest cheer of the day goes to Chris Dunn.“
Prediction: 34-21 (W)
“JMU will try to take the air out of the ball and be successful enough to keep it close until midway thru the 4th.”
Prediction: 37-20 (W)
“A tight game through much of the 1st half before State’s O wears down the undersized JMU D and breaks away. Gallaspy has a huge day.”
Prediction: 34-24 (W)
“While never trailing, the Pack will make everyone unnecessarily nervous.“
BTP Staff Cumulative Prediction: 37-22 (W)
