It was number 13 Batchelor - 2017 was his last year.

Very little chatter on the Weber board regarding our game. Three whole posts and one of those is from a JMU fan.

I thought their following was pretty solid. Not if their message board is any indication.... Weber board

Our DC should also be very familiar with this team, as his defense stifled Weber in the playoffs just last year.

Passing Efficiency:

WSU – 74th Jake Constantine. Junior. 194-313 (62%) 2,037 yds 13 TDs 10 INTs

Notes:
This game is nearly identical in matchup to UNI just last week. WSU has a marginally better offense compared to UNI, but still looks fairly mediocre overall. Anyone that watched their game last week against Montana knows that Montana was actually the better team throughout most of the game. UM’s 5 INTs and game losing blocked punt TD was the difference in favor of WSU. With half of those mistakes committed, we’d be playing Montana this week instead.

WSU’s offensive “strength” is their 55th ranked rushing game, while they don’t pass as much or as well. This matches up well with our defensive strength. They’ll be facing the nation’s best rushing defense who hasn’t allowed more than 93 yards rushing so far this postseason. Outside of that first Monmouth play of that game, which almost looks fluky in hindsight, JMU’s rushing D has surrendered a net zero rushing yards since that play nearly 2 games ago. We also held URI to -6 rushing yards.

If WSU wants to win, they’re going to have to beat us with their 90th ranked passing attack. Their QB Constantine is passing 62% on the season and has thrown twice as many interceptions as DiNucci, 10 INTs so far. He’s only thrown 13 TD passes on the season too, albeit in 11 games played as the starter. He was out a few games earlier in the season due to injury.

Both teams have excellent defense (although WSU may not be as good statistically as UNI was) and JMU will be tested again on offense this week. However, JMU leads in every statistical category by noticeable margins. One thing WSU is good at is forcing turnovers, just a good as UNI in fact. We have to continue to be careful with the football. 2 turnovers last week was not the performance we need. That DiNucci pick was especially ill-advised when he had a clear TD had he ran it into the corner of the endzone instead.

Similar to UNI last week, as long as we don’t turn the ball over too much and make many bad mistakes all game, WSU doesn’t have the offensive firepower to be too threatening. JMU should win by at least 14 points if our game is clean, no matter how well WSU plays on defense.

If we can play less conservative on offense and not turn the ball over 2 times, also missing 2 FGs, we should win this one much more comfortably next week and start booking our trip to Frisco.

Also, GO BOBCATS!

Dark Sky predicting a chilly, but clear ( 0% chance rain) Saturday night. Perhaps this one will be Cold, Dark, and Perfect.

Dukes open as a 14.5 point favorite.

Sounds right, especially if their RB is hobbled.

that comeback and FG is my all time favorite moment in Bridgeforth

I WILL be there for this weekend's game. I'm hoping this is the highest attended game of our postseason run. We need as many fans behind this team as possible.

Record it and just skip through commercials until you catch up real time

I'm thinking about doing exactly that, the problem is going to be others in the house watching the game upon my arrival. Especially my father-in-law who has no attachment to JMU other than me, has become a JMU football fan.

Man he made a hell of a catch between two great DB's though. Jimmy's play at 2:35:25 is worth mentioning too.

I'd say my favorite moment in Bridgeforth was the App State comeback, but that one might be tops for the expanded Bridgeforth.

I'm traveling the day of the game, but thankfully I'll I will have landed prior to kick-off. The bad news is that I'll be in Bonaire, and I doubt they'll have ESPNU there. I guess it's time to figure out how VPNs work so I can stream the game.

If you are staying on a resort, they might have it. Would you be using a VPN on a phone, tablet, or laptop?
