Friday Night Lights | Oct. 5th, 2018 

Dean College at Husson Univ. (7 p.m.): The Eagles scored an important win last week against SUNY Maritime, but must find a way to stop an up and coming Bulldogs team that appears to be a contender in the ECFC. PREDICTION: Husson 35, Dean 32 

Plymouth State at Bridgewater State (7 p.m.): This is a must-win for the Bears, who have rebounded since falling to Framingham State in its initial MASCAC clash of the season. PREDICTION: Bridgewater State 24, Plymouth State 16 


Saturday Games | Oct. 6th, 2018 

Coast Guard Academy at Springfield College (12 p.m.): The last time the Bears beat the Pride was in 1999. The win was coach Bill George‘s initial victory with Coast Guard Academy. Perhaps he scores his second win against Springfield this week on the road? PREDICTION: Coast Guard 24, Springfield 20 

Fitchburg State at Framingham State (12 p.m.): Framingham State remains the front-runner in the MASCAC, but this is a game they must-win, especially if they want to keep pace with Western Connecticut. PREDICTION: Framingham State 28, Fitchburg State 20 

Catholic Univ. at WPI (12 p.m.): The Engineers returned to the win column last week with a conference victory over Maine Maritime and should find a way past these Cardinals this week in Worcester. PREDICTION: WPI 28, Catholic 17 

MIT at Maine Maritime (12 p.m.): Its homecoming for coach Brian Bubna, who began his coaching career with the Mariners. MIT scored an impressive win last week and should keep its momentum going this week in Maine. PREDICTION: MIT 28, Maine Maritime 10

Williams College at Bates College (1 p.m.): A friend of our site thinks this could be a trap game for the Ephs, but we think the Purple and Gold will continue their early season momentum. PREDICTION: Williams 28, Bates 14

Trinity College at Hamilton College (1 p.m.): The Continentals scored their first win of the season last week against Wesleyan, thanks Christian Snell‘s blocked punt late in the fourth quarter. Snell pounced on the loose ball in the end zone to record the go-ahead touchdown. Perhaps Snell blocks another punt this week and reaches the end zone against Trinity? PREDICTION: Hamilton 26, Trinity 20 

Amherst College at Middlebury College (1:30 p.m.): The Panthers have rebounded from their week one setback to Wesleyan with back-to-back wins over Bowdoin and Colby, but this is a must-win for the Blue and White against a talented Amherst squad, which has won three-straight. PREDICTION: Amherst 28, Middlebury 21 

Tufts University at Bowdoin College (1:30 p.m.): Ryan McDonald should once again find a way to get the job done, both through the air and on the ground. PREDICTION: Tufts 35, Bowdoin 17
