Why North Iowa Will Win
The Panthers played well against the state of South Dakota, owned the game after a great second quarter, and then collapsed late.
On the positive side, the team was able to win even though the offensive struggled. There weren’t many mistakes, and QB Will McElvain wasn’t terrible as he scattered the ball a bit.
Yes, Youngstown State had to play North Dakota State in the opener, but the offensive fought with only 171 yards and no running game to count on but …
Why Youngstown State will win
The penguin defense did a good job against the defending national champions.
New head coach Doug Phillips put his D to work and gave up the yards in an unbreakable way. Secondary school allowed only 74 overtaking maneuvers, but that’s because the defensive front was hit hard by the bison attack.
On the other hand, the UNI fought offense. There wasn’t much to the running game with only 28 yards and no big lines, and it was a struggle to keep things moving.
What will happen
Which team will get over the disappointing start? Youngstown State wasn’t all that bad considering who it was playing, while Northern Iowa needs that win to avoid a disastrous start.
Which offense will work? Neither of the two – at least not so well – but after the late collapse, UNI defense will remedy the situation and halt the YSU ground attack.
