All times pacific standard.
UAF @ BYU-Hawaii @ 9:30pm
Bear with us (lol, like polar bear), we actually have a prediction!
BYU-Hawaii lost to BYU-Provo by 47, while Seattle Pacific lost to BYU-Provo by 20. Alaska-Fairbanks was picked to finish higher than Seattle Pacific in the Coaches Poll, and thus we expect UAF to beat BYU-Hawaii. Now, we realize that we picked UAF to finish lower than SPU, but seriously we need them to beat BYU-H, partly because the Seasiders must have had an impossible time recruiting this year (it’s the last year of their participation in athletics) and because that whole conference SOS thing. Let’s go Nooks!
SMU vs. Hawaii-Hilo @ 7pm
Hawaii-Hilo beat SFU by 13 while SMU beat Fresno Pacific by 21. We have Fresno Pacific picked to be a better team than Simon Fraser, thus we think the Saints should handle Hilo just fine. Should. It doesn’t mean they will. And while we’re hoping that there won’t be, there probably will be some growing pains. Hopefully the coaching staff has handled the high that inevitably comes after an overtime win on the road, and now the Saints are fully focused on beating the Vulcans. Good luck SMU!
Much as we’re combining this post for today, the results post will be combined on Wednesday.
