Dis gon’ be good.
All times pacific.
NNU @ SFU @ 5:15pm
Who knows. NNU wants to bounce back after a couple of blowouts, SFU wants to keep the ball rolling after their win at Concordia and good performance at WOU.
CWU @ WWU @ 7pm
Game of the night part one. Rivalry game. Western Washington is in free-fall, Central Washington got a fantastic win over Seattle Pacific on Saturday night. Last time these teams met Western Washington won a close one in Ellensburg, now the Wildcats want to return the favor. It seems like the odds are good that they will because teamwork makes the dreamwork and if CWU has one overall strength it is that they play as a team.
MSUB @ SMU @ 7:30pm
SMU just picked up a nice win against SPU, wants to keep the ball rolling. MSUB had a couple of good performances against the Alaska schools although didn’t get the win against UAF. Would be a great win to rub in their former travel partner’s face, getting a win against SMU that the Falcons couldn’t pick up.
CU-PDX @ UAA @ 8pm
Great chance for UAA to remind everyone that they’re worthy of an at-large bid. We have no idea what’s going on with the bid space and every win from here on out could shove UAA into that conversation. This game should be a good warm-up before facing Western Oregon on Saturday.
WOU @ UAF @ 8pm
Game of the night part two. This should be a really good game. Alaska-Fairbanks is a notoriously difficult place to play. Back in the days when the Vikings ruled our conference, it was expected by their fans that they would still walk out of UAF with a loss. It is hard to play in the Patty Center and so if the Wolves can get it done, it would be fantastic. That being said, the Polar Bears are going to do everything in their power to not let it happen.
Basically all of these games should be close, maybe with the exception of CU-Portland/Alaska-Anchorage. Good luck to all. Nightlights? Maybe. Hopefully.
