Pregame thoughts for YSU-Albany

By Joe Scalzo (Contact)

1. YSU is trying for its first 3-0 start since 2005. There's been some talk this week about Albany pulling an upset or making this close but I don't see it. If the Penguins can score 31 points against Pitt, I don't see how they won't score at least 40 against the Great Danes.

2. How great is that nickname, by the way? I wish more teams would use dog breeds (besides Bulldogs). How cool would a boxer look on a helmet?

3. I'm biased, though. I own a boxer.

4. Albany is planning to jump from the partial-scholarship Northeast Conference to the full-scholarship Colonial Athletic Association and this game should give the Great Danes an idea of how far away they are from competing in the CAA.

5. I think this is a good matchup for YSU. Albany likes to run the ball, which has been the strength of YSU's defense in the Wolford era. (Last year's Indiana State game being a notable exception.) The Penguins get in trouble against spread offenses that can get their guys out of position, specifically over the middle of the field.

6. My prediction? YSU 42-14.
