In FCS Football Week 16, we will see Northern Iowa at James Madison Dukes.
Northern Iowa is one of the teams with better defenses in the league. The team is allowing 10 or less points in their last 3 games and they have all been wins. Last time out, the Panthers managed to beat South Dakota State on the road behind the great play of their running back Trevor Allen who finished the game with 24 carries and 90 rushing yards. The defense also shined in this one, shutting down their opponent in the last 3 quarters of the game.
The James Madison Dukes are 12-1 and on a 12-game winning streak. In their last game, they beat a good Monmouth Hawks‘ side that was 11-2 prior to this game. QB Ben DiNucci finished the game with 21 completed passes out of 25 attempts, 273 passing yards, and 2 touchdowns. RB Jawon Hamilton added 95 rushing yards on 15 carries and the team finished with 66 points in total.
James Madison is too good and the Dukes will win this game but I doubt that they will cover the spread. Northern Iowa is a team that starts slowly but then the offense and the defense catch up and make the life miserable for their opponents.
