New England D-III Football | Games to Watch (Week Eight) 

Rankings based off this week’s Noontime Sports Top 20 Poll 

No. 2 Endicott College at No. 20 Husson University (Saturday, Oct. 26th at 12 p.m.): The Gulls offense has been really impressive this season, especially against conference foes and should continue its air attack against a talented Eagles squad, which needs to win this game to keep their conference title hopes alive. PREDICTION: Endicott 42, Husson 28 

No. 5 Western Connecticut at No. 7 Framingham State (Saturday, Oct. 26th at 12 p.m.): This has the making for a high-scoring game but in the end, I think the Rams will march down the field in the minutes to score the game-winning touchdown. PREDICTION: Framingham State 40, Western Conn. 35 

No. 16 Nichols College at No. 19 University of New England (Saturday, Oct. 26th at 1 p.m.): This is a must-win for the Bison, who remain in the mix for the Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC) title. UNE was rather impressive last weekend and has the potential to play spoiler in this matchup. PREDICTION: UNE 30, Nichols 24 

Dean College at Gallaudet University (Saturday, Oct. 26th at 1 p.m.): First place in the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) is on the line, but I expect the Bulldogs defense and offense to make a few more plays down the stretch to beat the Bison on the road. PREDICTION: Dean 33, Gallaudet 25

No. 18 Massachusetts Maritime Academy at Plymouth State (Saturday, Oct. 26th at 1 p.m.): Can the Panthers bounce back after registering just 53 yards of total offense? I don’t think so. But I do think Matt Long and the Buccaneers offense will have their way against a Plymouth State defense that yielded four passing touchdowns last weekend to Framingham State. PREDICTION: Mass. Maritime 31, Plymouth State 17 

Hamilton College at Tufts University (Saturday, Oct. 26th at 1 p.m.): Hamilton enters Saturday’s contest with some momentum following an exciting win over Amherst College one week ago. But can that momentum carry them past a Tufts squad that played perhaps its best game of the season one-week ago? We’ll have to wait and see but look for a big game from linebacker Greg HoltPREDICTION: Tufts 28, Hamilton 20 

No. 15 MIT at No. 12 Coast Guard Academy (Saturday, Oct. 26th at 1:30 p.m.): This is a must-win for the Engineers, who begin a crucial four-game stretch against a team that played its best game of the season last Saturday. The Coast Guard defense won’t make things easy for the MIT offense, but in the end, look for coach Brian Bubna‘s squad to make a few extra plays down the stretch and squeak out an important road win. PREDICTION: MIT 26, Coast Guard Academy 20 

SUNY-Maritime at Anna Maria College (Saturday, Oct. 26th at 2 p.m.): I picked against the Privateers last week – they proved me wrong and scored an important bounce-back win against Castleton University. I expect the Privateers to keep their title hopes alive with an important road victory in Paxton, Massachusetts. PREDICTION: SUNY-Maritime 28, Anna Maria 13 

Merchant Marine at No. 1 WPI (Saturday, Oct. 26th at 3 p.m.): The Engineers looked pretty impressive last week against Catholic University, but will need their defense to slow down a very talented offense. Additionally, WPI will need to lean on its ground attack to score an important win in Worcester. PREDICTION: WPI 23, Merchant Marine 17
