The Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks were absolutely horrible offensively in their season opener, and while it’s just one game, it’s not encouraging heading into this matchup. The Youngstown State Penguins are off to a fine start through one game, and if they play with the same effort here, they should have similar success. It’s hard to get behind the Skyhawks after what they showed in their first effort. I’ll lay the chalk.
