The only game I would call with certainty is a win for Wisconsin. The rest could be interesting.

Huge homecoming weekend game in Charleston as EIU (5-2, 4-0 in the OVC) takes on Jacksonville State (5-1, 3-0 in the OVC). The Panthers have been the cardiac cats thus far this season with all 5 of their wins coming by 3 points or less. The Gamecocks are ranked #3 in FCS in the most recent coaches poll with their lone loss this season coming at Georgia Tech.

Kickoff is set for 2:00 PM CT and the game will air on ESPN3.

Final score in Charleston: Jacksonville State 30 EIU 14

Game was a lot closer than the final score indicates as EIU held a 14-9 lead at half. It was impressive enough to see the Panthers be so competitive against a Gamecocks team that is ranked in the top 5 in FCS.

Panthers return to action next weekend at UT-Martin.

I hate Michigan. I don't like PSU very much. Ugh.

If the NCAA had really wanted to punish Penn State, they would’ve forced them to hire Tim Beckman, Bill Cubit, and Mike Thomas.
