This feels like a lot of points to be giving up with Kennesaw State, even against Charleston Southern, but we saw how competitive the Owls were against teams like Iowa State and Creighton so tstart the year and I have to think that that brings up some measure of confidence for the Owls here. Charleston Southern’s a decent team but they have struggled on the road and I think this spot is no different. Give me the Owls here.
