In FCS Football Week 8, we will see East Tennessee State vs Chattanooga.
The East Tennessee State Buccaneers are 2-4 on the year and they are coming off a very tough loss against Wofford, 17-35. They weren’t able to stop the running game at all and the opposing QB threw the ball just for 6 times. On the other side, QB Trey Mitchell completed 12 out of 23 throws for 163 yards and 1 touchdown. RB Jacob Saylors rushed for 64 yards on 12 carries.
The Chattanooga Mocs got a better winning record than East Tennessee and they are standing at 3-3 at the moment. The team is coming off a 34-17 win over Mercer in a game where QB Nick Tiano threw for 190 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. RB Ailym Ford had 32 carries and 116 rushing yards, topping this performance with a touchdown. The team is playing very well against weaker opposition but has many problems when facing stronger ones.
Chattanooga may not be the better team but at least they have the ground game set in place. The personnel on offense is better and I expect them to deliver in front of the home crowd. The spread is not big and they should not have a problem to cover it.
