This week's Purple & Gold football picks (11-5-16)






It's week ten in the SoCon, and time to make this week's football picks.

On the schedule, we have a full slate of four conference games while Chattanooga has a bye week.




Wofford (5-3, 3-2 Southern)  at  Furman (2-6, 2-3 Southern)   1:30 pm  -  Watch on ESPN3
The Terriers take that short trip to Greenville down I-85 to play the Paladins in what will be a closer than expected game. Hoping to stay in the race for an at-large NCAA bid, Wofford pulls out a 28-24 win over Furman.


VMI (3-5, 1-4 Southern)  at  Western Carolina (1-7, 0-6 Southern) 2:00 pm  -  Watch on ESPN3
The Keydets travel to Cullowhee in search of their second conference win of the season, while the home standing Catamounts are looking for their first conference victory. The Cats pull off their second home win of the season, as they drop the Keydets with a 14 point victory,  28-14.


Samford (6-2, 4-1 Southern)  at  The Citadel (8-0, 6-0 Southern)  2:00 pm   -  Watch on ESPN3
In what may well be the FCS "game of the week", the Samford Bulldogs travel to Charleston to meet the league leading Citadel Bulldogs. With the Citadel's unbeaten record on the line, the Bulldogs defend the home turf, and pull out a 7 point victory,  28-21.


ETSU (3-5, 1-5 Southern)  at  Mercer (4-4, 2-3 Southern)  3:00 pm   -   Watch on ESPN3
The Bucs of ETSU travel to Macon to meet the Bears in the afternoon's last SoCon game of the day. With continued hopes for a long-shot at-large NCAA bid, the Bears roll to a 21 point win, 35-14.
