The New Hampshire Wildcats and Florida International Panthers meet Saturday in college football action at FIU Stadium.
The New Hampshire Wildcats look for a bounce back performance after losing their season opener to Holy Cross. The New Hampshire Wildcats have lost five of their last six road games. Max Brosmer is completing 50 percent of his passes for 106 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception. Brosmer obviously has to be sharper if the Wildcats are going to hang in this game. Charles Briscoe III and Dylan Laube have combined for 113 receiving yards on five catches while Malik Love has four receptions. The New Hampshire Wildcats ground game is averaging 164 yards per contest, and Carlos Washington Jr. leads the way with 107 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, New Hampshire is allowing 13 points and 315 yards per game. Pop Bush leads the New Hampshire Wildcats with nine tackles, Cameron Brusko has one sack and Prince Smith Jr. has two pass deflections.
The Florida International Panthers need a victory here to rebound from a rough 0-2 start to the season. The Florida International Panthers have lost their last three home games. James Morgan is completing 48.9 percent of his passes for 233 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Morgan has one touchdown pass in his last three games. Maurice Alexander and Austin Maloney have combined for 134 receiving yards on 11 catches while Sterling Palmer has two receptions. The Florida International Panthers ground game is averaging 105 yards per contest, and Anthony Jones leads the way with 91 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, FIU is allowing 31 points and 442 yards per game. Sage Lewis leads the Florida International Panthers with 14 tackles, Kevin Oliver has one sack and Rishard Dames has one interception.
The New Hampshire Wildcats are a decent program that isn't far removed from nine wins and a road win over Georgia Southern. The Florida International Panthers have greatly underachieved through two games, as this was supposed to be a team that competed for a conference title. When push come to shove, this is the game where we find out if FIU is going to turn things around or they're frauds. I'll give FIU the benefit of the doubt and lay the touchdown.
