Every second counts for Ferrum, Bridgewater
It’s easy for a team to let the hangover of a close defeat burden its poise and execution on the field afterward. And it’s easy to fall prey to the same mistakes over and over.

October 2, 2007

Stagg Bowl XXIX predictions
Believe it or not, two years ago our panel of experts picked the result of Stagg Bowl XXVII correctly, with Pacific Lutheran carrying the day. And well, we did nail the Mount Union/St. John's game victor last year, but perhaps not the margin of victory. This year our experts try their hand at predicting the result of Stagg Bowl XXIX.
