The 10-0 Southern Oregon University football team will look to go 11-0 this coming Saturday in Ashland against 9-1 DSU. Massey has the Raiders as 18-point favorites.

If the Raiders win and USF, Reinhardt, Morningside, or Lindsey Wilson should lose then SOU will get another home playoff game on November 25. Lindsey Wilson is the team most likely to lose. Massey has Lindsey Wilson as 5-point favorites over Southeastern FL.

More items of note, Massey has three Frontier Conference teams in the final 16. The coaches have only SOU, despite (or maybe because of???) the Frontier Conference’s history of winning road playoff games. The Frontier Conference gets two votes in the coaches’ poll. The Mid-South Conference gets five votes. So it isn’t surprising that four Mid-South Conference teams are going to the playoffs, and two are ranked in the top four, even though the conference hasn’t produced a national champion in the past 15 years (Frontier Conference teams have won seven national champions in the last 15 years).

4 and 7 again

@SOURaiders @SOU_Football @seannnyboii @CarterTheGr8_

For the first time, in 70 years, the SOU football team is 7-0. However, in the rankings, nothing is new. Massey still has the Raiders as #4, and the coaches will still have Southern Oregon as #7 when their poll comes out tomorrow.

The teams, ahead of the Raiders in the rankings, all have easy opponents this coming weekend. (What else is new?) SOU hosts Massey’s #12, Montana Western, on Saturday. The Raiders are 11-point favorites according to Massey.

Throwing it back today to the halftime festivities at one of SOU’s football games last season. The Grants Pass Warriors Pop Warner football team was about to take the field at Raider Stadium.

In just over three months, the 2016 season will get underway. You can find the 2016 schedule for the Raiders here.

Southern Oregon vs Kansas Wesleyan

@SOURaiders @SOU_Football @MontanaWestern

It’s official. The Raiders will be at home on Saturday (11/21/15) for the first round of the 2015 NAIA FCS. Game time is 4 p.m.

Their opponent will be the #10 Kansas Wesleyan Coyotes. While the Coyotes record (10-1) and ranking look great, Massey Ratings has them at #46 (and SOU at #3). Massey thinks KS Wesleyan could only beat Montana Northern in the Frontier Conference. Massey has the Raiders “strength of schedule” at #5 in the country and KS Wesleyan at #82, hence their sparkly record. KS Wesleyan’s one loss came via Tabor, another program that Massey doesn’t think could beat anyone in the Frontier Conference other than Montana Northern.

But Massey, and their accurate predictions, aren’t what matter when it comes to selecting teams for the NAIA Football Championship Series. That’s why KS Wesleyan and Tabor are in the postseason and Montana Western is not. compughterratings.com thinks Montana Western could beat either team by more than 20 points on the road (and has SOU as 36 point favorites on Saturday).
