Raiders crush Yotes on road for 7-1 record

The Southern Oregon University football team had no problem breaking the College of Idaho’s undefeated-at-home winning streak today. Details of the game can be found here. Melvin Mason averaged nearly 7 yards per carry while rushing the ball 12 times today.

It’s that time of the season in which scoreboard watching comes into play. If the Raiders can crack the top four in the rankings by the end of the season, they will earn the right to host several possible playoff games. Currently SOU sits at #7 in the coach’s poll, the only poll that counts. #2 Baker lost today and #6 Georgetown barely won against an unranked, previously 2-5 team. The odds look pretty good that the Raiders will come in at #5 when Monday’s poll is released with three regular season games to play.

This weekend the Southern Oregon University football team will be on the road again, taking on the College of Idaho Yotes. Carroll is the only team in the Frontier Conference getting much respect from the coaches doing the NAIA national rankings. The coaches seem to look more at records and the teams’ performances in prior years than strength of schedule in the current year, who a team beat, or where games take place.

College of Idaho doesn’t garner any votes from the coaches, but more accurate and objective rankings like Hensley Ratings say otherwise. There, the Yotes are ranked #15. In addition, College of Idaho is undefeated at home. Still, Hensley Ratings predicts the Raiders will be victorious by a touchdown.

Down to #7

With the Raiders loss to Carroll College the NAIA Football Coaches Poll rather unfairly dropped SOU three spots in the rankings. Both Carroll and SOU are undefeated against a similar schedule. (In fact, SOU has one more win than Carroll and no more losses.) SOU beat Carroll by 3 points at home. Carroll beat SOU by 2 points at home. Anyone who has watched both of those games would say that the teams are evenly matched. They would probably win about 50 games each if they played each other 100 times. Yet Carroll is ranked #3 while SOU is ranked #7. Why?

If SOU wins the rest of their games they will get at least one home game in the playoffs. However, if Carroll wins the rest of their games they will get at least two home games in the playoffs. Why?

Hopefully, SOU wins the rest of their games and a few teams ahead of SOU in the current rankings are upset between now and November 15.
