This week's Purple & Gold football picks (9-21-18)





It's week #4 in the SoCon, and time to pick this weeks' games.

This week, we have 4 conference games for Saturday






Saturday, 9-21-18
VMI (0-3, 0-2 Southern) at Western Carolina (2-0, 0-0 Southern) 3:30 pm ESPN+
The Keydets travel to Cullowhee hoping for their first-ever win in E.L.Whitmire Stadium, and the Cats are hoping for their first 3-0 start in a football since Bob Waters' 1976 Catamount football team. The Cats pick up the victory with a 49-21 final score.

The Citadel (0-2, 0-2 Southern) at Mercer (2-1, 1-0 Southern) 4:00 pm ESPN+
The Bears are intent on picking up conference win number two, while the visiting Bulldogs will be able to do little to stop their roll.  Mercer wins at home, 24-14.

Samford (1-2, 0-1 Southern) at Chattanooga (3-0, 1-0 Southern) 7:00 pm ESPN+
Both teams need and want a win in this game. The Mocs want that 4-0 start on the season, while the Bulldogs desperately don't want to drop 2 conference games in a row.  The visitors squeak out the win, 24-21.

Furman (0-2, 0-0 Southern) at ETSU (2-1, 1-0 Southern) 7:30 pm ESPN3
The Paladins are desperate for a win in this young season, and they have their site set on the Bucs as they visit Johnson City.  The home-standing Bucs play well in the first half, but can't hang with Furman in the second.  The Paladins reel off 35 points while holding the Bucs to 10.
