Mr. MAC Picks - A Champion is Crowned!

Albright has destiny in their own hands! (A Photo)

My YTD Record (29 Wins, 13 Losses - 0.690)

The Battle for the Mayor's Cup

Will King's continue to battle, but not get the prize? Can Wilkes come out of their slump? This game always has a surprise, but this year I don't think anythink will be jumping out of the box! No, Wilkes will not pull off an upset this year. King's should keep this game well in hand as they are clearly the better team. They will put a stop to shooting themselves in the foot. Wilkes will end the year with just one big win over Delaware Valley.
My Prediction: King's 27 - Wilkes 13

The Battle for a share of the MAC

Stevenson made a fantastic run at the MAC championship this year, but cannot get an invitation to the NCAA Post Season Play. If all cards fall in their favor, they could be co-champions of the MAC, but that probability is so slim, you won't see snake eyes Saturday! FDU-Florham will once again play well for half a game and give the Mustangs trouble, but Stevenson will catch their breath and win out. Finishing 8-2 will be their biggest prize to date after just five years in the MAC.
My Prediction: Stevenson 42 - FDU-Florham 24

A Battle for an NCAA Playoff Bid

If you are looking for a game to remember, this will be one of those games. Delaware Valley has a score to settle as Widener kept the Aggies out of the NCAA playoff last year. The Aggies are also at home and the crowd will be electric! Stung by Lycoming last week, Delaware has something prove. Are they as good as the polls said they were? Widener wants to spoil their day and win the Keystone Cup again. But I see DelVal squeaking by in this close hard fought game.
My Prediction: Delaware Valley 33 - Widener 27

The Battle for the MAC Championship

This game is a must see if you are in the area. Albright can control their own destiny. Defeat Lebanon Valley and they are the MAC Champions and go into the playoffs. If they lose and Delaware Valley defeats Widener, the Aggies win the right to the automatic bid into the NCAA Playoffs. And what is there to lose for Lebanon Valley, after all, they get Monday off if they upset the Lions. What is not to play for? I think Lebanon Valley will play well, but not have enough to keep Albright out of the MAC Championship and a trip to the playoffs.
My Prediction: Albright 30 - Lebanon Valley 24

The Battle for Pride

Both Misericordia and Lycoming won last week. The Cougars won their first game of the year over Wilkes and Lycoming upset Delaware Valley. So both teams are on a high. I expect Lycoming to continue their stellar play and dash the hopes for Misericordia's back to back victories. Senior day in Williamsport, PA will be joyful for the Warriors.
My Prediction: Lycoming 34 - Misericordia 17
