Illinois State (0-2) vs North Dakota State (2-1) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Okay, so this isn’t your older brother’s North Dakota State team, but it’s still pretty good.
It’s having a hard time getting the offense rolling, and the defense has been able to crank up the stats against Missouri State and Youngstown State – two of the lesser teams in the Missouri Valley Conference.
Illinois State can turn its 0-2 season around in a hurry, and it has the talent to do it.
It got stuck in a defensive battle with Northern Iowa – a 20-10 Redbird loss – and lost to South Dakota in a 27-20 fight. However, Brock Spack’s team has the right mix of run defense and passing game to get by the relatively punchless Bison.
That’s a stretch – North Dakota State is fine – but the passing attack isn’t doing enough and the O hasn’t been consistent. The Bison will get by in the Fargodome, but Illinois State has the upside to pull this off if it gets all the right breaks.
