I like the Zips to win a close one. My Fearless Forecast™ is the Shawn Featherstone scores a TD.

After sitting through the UAB game and watching that mess, I have no confidence in the Zips beating anyone. Sad to say, but that's the way I'm feeling right now. Until our offensive line can block to protect Kato and can learn to run block and our defensive line can get pressure on the other QB we are in trouble.

They will be watching Burkhart like a hawk so he will be more of a decoy this game. I expect to see some runs and scrambles not to exceed 130 yards. Zips will need to show me they can get it done on the road against anyone ... I have to give the edge to McElwain's FBS experience in a close contest.

I agree with ZippyRulz on Burkhart, and think that Boogie may get the most yards maybe not the most targets.  And I had the 100 to 130 yard range for rushing but think that Kato will get more than 50% of it.  All that said I predict a 2 point win, believe it or not.

I went with the Zips because of the power of the Takeaway Pencil. Kinda like never doubt the power of the pen .....cil. Seriously, to me it all boils down to the O Line. We win if they can block.

Now, with the Chip's QB and RB out, the zips have a chance, but in a close low scoring game.  I expect Kato to get the bulk of the running yards, therefore 71 - 100.  Also, Burkhart will have another good game, but not this Saturday.  It will be AW.  Go Zips!!!

My thoughts match up with those above.  Since CMU is having some issues,  if the kicking game is even simply average this would look like an opportunity for Zips to make it happen.  However, if the kicking game is still horrible, iit will be another loss albeit a closer one.

I think you have it right on the money.

Even though I'm pretty sure the Zips are not going to win a single game this season, I have a gut feeling the Zips will pull out a 4 -2 win this weekend. (or it could just be gas).

I’ll predict that today is the day that Nate’s hard offseason work is going to (statistically) pay off. Big day. 🙌

Congratulations to@blueandgold  👍

 

Only member to guess the Zips would only rush for 40 (or less) yards, predicted a win by more than six for the Chips, and predicted Nate Stewart would lead the Zips in receiving. 

 

Impressive.

Thanks, although this is one time I wish I was wrong about everything. Lol
