North Dakota (3-0) vs Western Illinois (0-2) Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

You want to turn this whole thing around, Western Illinois? Here you go.

The Leathernecks have struggled so far with a loss to a mediocre – to be nice – Missouri State team and a blowout against South Dakota State. The offense hasn’t been all that bad – it cranked up almost 400 yards against SDSU – but the defense can’t get off the field.

That’s where North Dakota comes in.

With all due respect to James Madison, North Dakota has been the best team in the FCS to start the young spring season, ripping through its first three games with an offense that looked sharp from the start in in blowout win over blowout win.

The Fighting Hawk offensive line has been brilliant, and it’s about to take over and rock the Western Illinois run defense that’s allowing over 250 yards per game.

If it sees like North Dakota always has the ball, it will. It’ll own the time of possession battle with the O on the field for well over 35 minutes.
