The Bucknell Bison haven’t looked great through seven games, and their defense can really fall apart for stretches. The St. Francis (PA) Red Flash nearly beat George Washington on the road in their opener, and they’ve done a good job of winning the games they’re supposed to win. At home, the Red Flash should have the edge here. I’ll lay the reasonable number.
