While neither team has had the toughest schedule up to this point, we have two highly successful teams that have filled it up offensively. The Furman Paladins are obviously the better team here, but we're getting a ton of points with an unbeaten team that's also looked better on the defensive side. This line isn't showing any respect to the Citadel Bulldogs. I'll grab the free buckets.
