    I'm not actually sure if there will be a CCG, I'm just assuming so because there are two divisions.

    #3[​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    Both of these teams are undefeated in conference play, and with both of them winning their week 9 division games, only 2 more stand in their way in order to clinch their respective divisions. This will be a classic match-up of a stellar defense in Rutgers vs a high powered offense in SMU. In nine games, Rutgers has only allowed an average of 10.6 points per game. On the flip side, SMU has averaged 34.4 points scored per game in their first nine.​
    In Gilbert's first seven games of the season, he completed roughly 58% of his passes and threw 12 TDs / 16 INTs. In the previous two games, he has completed 76% of his passes and threw 10 TDs / 2 INTs. There is no denying he is red hot right now, but the Rutgers defense poses his biggest challenge yet. SMU's offensive line will have their hands full with DT Scott Vallone who has 5 recorded sacks on the year. Gilbert will also want to avoid throwing the ball anywhere near the lockdown corner Logan Ryan, he already has 7 recorded INTs on the year.​
    If SMU can contain Rutgers' run game and not turn the ball over, they have a chance at scoring more than 10.6 points and maybe walking away with the win. If Rutgers can control the pace of the game and force a few turnovers, they will surely remain undefeated. This one should be a thriller!​
    Good luck sawemoff

    Should have put it up in one of the blogs :(

    Regardless, nice write up fuzzy. imo this is definitely a CCg preview (of course there is a CCG!)
