This week in Big Sky football

It's going to be another interesting week in the Big Sky Conference as four teams are ranked and have just one loss in the conference. If you were looking for the definition of a quagmire, say hello to the BSC. I'll try and break down the matchups this week and make sense of everything...

Sacramento State (2-2 conf., 3-3 overall) @ No. 8 Eastern Washington (4-1 conf., 5-2 overall)
The Eagles will be their red turf, but they'll also have to contend with a Sac State team that isn't a pushover. Eastern can't overlook this Sac State team as they gave Montana a run for their money when these two teams played.

No. 22 Northern Arizona (2-1 conf., 4-2 overall) @ No. 7 Montana (4-1 conf., 5-2 overall)
NAU walloped MSU last week but they have to play the Grizzlies in their home stadium. This isn't an easy task by any stretch of the imagination although I don't think Montana is as strong this year as they've been in previous season. UM has won the previous 12 meetings though.

Northern Colorado (1-4 conf., 2-5 overall) @ No. 15 Montana State (3-1 conf., 5-2 overall)
This will be the a nice bounce-back for the Bobcats, they should be able to handle the Bears, no problem.

Portland State (1-2 conf., 2-4 overall) @ Weber State (2-2 conf., 3-3 overall) 
Weber State has won three straight against Portland State, but the Vikings gave Montana a scare last week. This game shows you how crazy this conference is, it could go either way.

There you have it, feel free to comment below!
