The Presbyterian Blue Hose could use a strong win to bounce back from a rough 1-4 start to the year. The Presbyterian Blue Hose have been outscored 52-10 in their last two games. Will Brock is completing 54.4 percent of his passes for 462 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Brock and Ben Cheek have combined for three touchdown passes. Dashawn Davis and Darrell Bridges have combined for 275 receiving yards on 37 catches while Darquez Watson has 14 receptions. The Presbyterian Blue Hose ground game is averaging 101 yards per contest, and Bridges leads the way with 421 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Presbyterian is allowing 29.8 points and 436.4 yards per game. Grant Beidel leads the Presbyterian Blue Hose with 28 tackles, Kamren Mack has three sacks and Kenneth Coleman has one interception.
This line is rather low considering Presbyterian has been awful all season long with four losses in five games. As if that wasn't bad enough, the Presbyterian Blue Hose have scored seven or less points in four of those five games. Presbyterian simply struggles to do anything productive on the offensive side of the ball. Monmouth is a confident group after winning back to back games and its only loss came on the road against Kent State.
I have to side with the Monmouth Hawks by a touchdown here.
