We’ll get the posts were supposed to put up yesterday, up later tonight. We’ve acted as an older sibling to this SPU team all year and so as much as we were excited with both Tobin and Oggie’s play and really proud of the Anchorage guys, the loss was brutal.
As such, we have zero opinion on who should win tonight, but… The good news is, Azusa Pacific lost to Biola last night, and thus SPU should still be headed to San Diego next week.
#5 UAA vs. #2 WWU @ 5pm
UAA had a somewhat major upset of SPU last night? Somewhat just because UAA gave the Falcons all they could handle when SPU visited Anchorage, and so… The Seawolves got their revenge in a HUGE way. Fairbanks hung around WWU for a while, but really couldn’t do much. While the instinct would be “Oh, WWU is gonna kill UAA,” it really depends. That definitely could happen, but this is the GNAC and the GNAC is gonna GNAC and so… Anchorage could get the win. And if they do, there could be three GNAC teams in the Regional, because Chico state got murdered last night by Cal Poly Pomona, we’re talking a 35 point loss. And so with this GNAC game… Anchorage isn’t getting an at-large bid, but they could get the auto with a win and so we shall see.
Prediction: Pick ’em.
We’re shockingly not going to this game; figure we best save our hearing because WWU fans are loud, but we’ll be watching the stream and tweeting along.
Be safe, have fun, go GNAC!
