MU football vs. CCSU. My prediction (Game is on FSNY at 11-am, live)

Below from Greg (fallen Eagle) Viscomi. Poll at the bottom. Comments welcomed...

Monmouth enters into the
game against Central Connecticut
State with a 1-5 overall
record and a 1-2 NEC record after
a disasterous outing against
Wagner on Homecoming.
Before going idle last weekend,
the Blue & White lost a 45-
16 game to Wagner at home,
with the defense allowing the
most points at home in the 15
year history of the program.
Two Hawks had career-days
recieving as MU quarterback
Brett Burke also had a careerday
throwing the ball as Monmouth
tried to get back into the
game. Running back David Sinisi
scored in his 18th straight game,
extending the nation’s longest
scoring streak.
Central is off to a 5-2 record
under second-year head coach
Jeff McInerny, including a perfect
3-0 record in NEC play. CCSU
boasts one of the nation’s best
rushing attacks, which has them
averaging a conference-best
29.3 points per game. The Blue
Devils defeated Wagner at home
by a score of 21-13 in their last game.

My prediction: Can't see MU closing down the CCSU running game enough to win it. Key will be getting in front early and making CCSU throw more than they've been accustomed to in what should be wet conditions. MU keeps it close, but no cigar.

Score: CCSU 20, Monmouth 14.

My record: 4-2.

I think were in for a long afternoon but could prove to be a valuable
experience for the defense next year.
