    Two points to make.

    The other issue Colgate and other teams in the league have is they cannot redshirt which hurts the development of OL and DL especially. So the roster is full of true seniors, true juniors, etc. player development is impacted by that league rule.

    The second point is perhaps a question. Kennesaw QB left last weeks game with an injury. KSU has no chance without him. He is, after all one of the three Payton finalists. Any idea on his status for the Bunny game?

    Colgate has 8 seniors on defense, and they did a decent job against Army (as a West Point grad I’m biased) but their offense just couldn’t convert on a couple of critical 4th down attempts and in general was not very explosive except for a couple of up the gut runs and medium range passes. Their quarterback showed no inclination to even think about running.

    Army still had 260+ yards rushing, which is below their season average of 303 but obviously significantly more than Colgate has allowed against FCS competition. If there is anything similar between NDSU and Army offensive, it’s probably their commitment to running the ball and to sustain long drives. Hope this is a better game than the recent 1st half blowouts.

      Colgate played their backup qb against Army. Starter got hurt the week before and they wanted to be cautious before the playoffs so they didn’t play him. He was back against JMU, he’s more of a dual threat and seems to be a better passer but still not too worried about him.
