Details about today’s game can be found here.

A few things…

I’ve heard people talk about how the Raiders season is already over after losing their first couple games. Not true. The Sacramento State game means next to nothing–especially considering how well Sac State fared against Arizona State last weekend.

Southern Oregon has had problems with Eastern Oregon at home over the last several years. Last Saturday wasn’t an exception. SOU lost to EOU at home in 2014 too, and look how that season turned out for the Raiders.

Massey has the Raiders as 7-point underdogs at College of Idaho. However, if the Raiders win (and Massey gives Southern Oregon a 32% chance of doing so), they will possibly be in a tie for first place in the conference. Even if they lose, SOU still gets to face Eastern Oregon again (at a venue they have done very well at) and College of Idaho at home to make amends for the early losses.

In summary, the season is far from over–regardless of what happens today, and a win today can quickly move them back into pole position.

#4 @ #2

New Massey Ratings are out after yesterday’s games. SOU, now 2-0, moved up to #2 according to Massey. Montana Tech also jumped a couple spots, setting up a #4 against #2 this coming Saturday in Ashland. Massey gives SOU a 71% chance of winning and predicts a victory for the Raiders by a touchdown.

The coaches will likely have the Raiders at #3 when the new poll comes out on Monday. Montana Tech should crack the top 20 with their 2-0 start. The Frontier Conference has performed very well against non-Frontier Conference teams so far. Massey has noticed. Will the coaches?

Carroll College beat D3 powerhouse Linfield College this past Saturday. Montana State Northern (a team that seldom wins against Frontier Conference opponents) crushed Mayville State. #20 Rocky Mountain beat #13 Dickinson State. Massey predicted that win; the coaches did not. What else is new?

Massey has seven Frontier Conference teams in the top 16. The coaches will likely have only three Frontier Conference teams in the top 25.
