8McNeese LogoMcNeese StateMcNeese (5-1) had the week off to ponder their close victories lately. They need a strong showing at home against Incarnate Word.8
9Eastern Washington LogoEastern WashingtonEWU (5-2) is missing their quarterback. Still, Weber State is double tough defensively. The coming bye week is perfectly timed.2
10Elon LogoElonElon (4-2) might have used all their magic at JMU. Delaware came back late and grounded the Phoenix. Home vs. Richmond next.3

13Maine LogoMaineJust when Maine (4-2) looked headed the wrong direction, they've come back and won at URI. Shouldn't need late heorics with W&M.17
14Sam Houston State LogoSam Houston StateSHSU (4-2) lost badly to Northwestern State in the 2nd quarter. They won the rest of the game though. They travel to Lamar next.15
15Towson LogoTowsonTigers (5-1) roared back in the second half to beat W&M. A game at Albany figures to be winnable also.19
