Bet on NCAAFA bunch of Bears from Big 12 Baylor will invade Louisiana's Sun Belt on Friday night to do battle with the LA.-Monroe Warhawks. This conflict is scheduled to begin at Malone Stadium in Monroe, La. at 8:00ET. The game can be seen nationally on ESPN.
Baylor (2-0) survived a scare last Saturday when they came back from trailing little Sam Houston State 20-10 at the half and posted a 48-23 victory. Bears QB Nick Florence was almost single handedly responsible for the comeback by throwing for 3 touchdowns and setting up a fourth TD by scampering for 60 yards on the ground. Florence finished with 312 yards passing and 80 rushing for the day.
LA-Monroe (1-1) has been an early season surprise by upsetting the then-number-8-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks 34-31 to open the year and last week they gave an admittedly weaker Auburn team all they could handle while falling 31-28. The Warhawks are now 0-9 against the Tigers and 0-19 versus the SEC.
Baylor is in the midst of an 8 game win streak dating back to last season which is the second longest current streak in the country.
Baylor is a 7.5 point road favorite in LA.-Monroes first home appearance this year on a $110/$100 moneyline. The moneyline's the same for the over/under of 68.5 points.
The Georgetown Hoyas pay a visit to the Ivy League on Friday night in a matchup with the Princeton Tigers. This contest is scheduled to begin in New Jersey's Princeton Stadium at 7:00 PM ET and can be seen on ESPNU.
Georgetown (2-1) comes into this one off a loss to another Ivy League foe, Yale, by the score of 24-21. Hoyas' QB Aaron Aiken could manage just 94 total yards of passing offense and had a pass intercepted with just 33 seconds left in the game and the ball on Yales 17 yard line. Even Yale's 5 turnovers weren't enough for Georgetown who had 4 of their own.
Princeton (0-1) dropped its season opener to a good Lehigh team last week 17-14. They too, got little production from their QB, sophmore Connor Michelsen who threw for just 103 yards.
The Hoyas are averaging 23 points in its 3 contests thus far, versus the 14 scored by the Tigers in their lone effort. They are almost even on defense with Georgetown surrendering 16 points to Princetons 17.
As of this preview, the betting line for this game has not yet been established, and there is expected to be no line set for this game.
