This week's Purple & Gold football picks (11-11-17)

It's week #11 in the SoCon, and time to pick Saturday's games.

All four games are set for Saturday, and all four are conference games.

Wofford (8-1, 6-1 SoCon) at VMI  (0-10, 0-7 SoCon)   1:30 pm - watch on ESPN3
The Terriers travel to Lexington and continue on beatdowns of the Keydets. Wofford assures itself of a slice of the conference chanpionship and the auto-bid to the NCAA with a 35-10 win over VMI/

The Citadel (5-4, 3-4 SoCon) at Furman (6-3, 5-1 SoCon)  2:00 pm EDT - watch on ESPN3
The Bulldogs travel to Travler's Rest to play the Paladins in an important game for both teams. The defending champion Bulldogs are playing for honor and Paladins are playing for a chance of an at-large NCAA bid and a potential slice of the SoCon championship.  The Paladins are too strong for the dogs as they pick up a 28-14 win over the Citadel.

Mercer (4-5, 3-4 SoCon) at Western Carolina (7-3, 5-2 SoCon)  2:00 pm EDT - watch on ESPN3
The Bears travel to Cullowhee, hoping for a repeat victory over the Cats. Western is playing for an at-large playoff bid and has not been statically eliminated from a share of the conference crown (would require losses by Wofford and Furman).  The Cats do their part, picking up win #8, with a 28-21 victory.

ETSU (4-5, 2-4 SoCon) at Samford (6-2, 4-2 SoCon)    3:00 pm EDT - watch on ESPN3
The Bucs travel to Birmingham to face the Bulldogs in what is a must-win game for Samford if their hopes for an at-large playoff berth are to continue. The Bulldogs roll to a 35-14 win over the Bucs.

Record this season:
42-11 overall
