Week two - Purple & Gold football picks (9-10-16)



It's week #2 in the SoCon, and time for us to make this week's SoCon football picks.

While no Thursday games, week two also has one conference game scheduled, as the Paladins travel to meet the Bulldogs in Charleston, ETSU has a bye this week.


Saturday, September 10, 2016

Presbyterian College (0-1) at Chattanooga (1-0)   2 pm ET
The Blue Hose lost to Central Michigan by a final score of 49-3 last Saturday, and will lose to the Mocs 35-10 in Chattanooga.

Mercer (0-1) at Georgia Tech (1-0)   3 pm ET
The Bears dropped a one-point game to The Citadel last Saturday, while the Yellow Jackets beat Boston College.  The Bears lose again, this time by a final score of 38-10.

Wofford (1-0) at #11 Ole Miss   5 pm ET
Old Miss is too much for the Terriers as they fall to Ole Miss by a 49-14 final score.

Furman (0-1) at The Citadel (1-0, 1-0 Southern)    6 pm ET
The Paladins are not up to beating the Bulldogs in Charleston and will fall by a final score of 14-27 to the Bulldogs.

VMI (0-1) at Morehead State (0-1)   6 pm ET
MSU fell last week by a final score of 80-7 to James Madison. The outcome will be the same, as the Keydets pick up their first road win by a 49-14 final score.

Gardner-Webb (1-0) at Western Carolina (0-1)   6 pm ET
The Runnin' Bulldogs beat Elon by a final score of 31-6 on the road and travel to Cullowhee this week expecting to trip up the Cats as well. One week's preparation time is probably not enough  for the Cats to field a decent defense, and the Dogs run over the Cats 28-24

Samford (1-0) at Central Arkansas (1-0)  7 pm  ET
Central Arkansas beat Houston Baptist 56-12 while the Bulldogs ran over Mars Hill 77-7.  Even though the game is on the road for the Bulldogs, they remain unbeaten by a final score of 35-27.
