Prediction Contest: JMU vs. Maine

Now the real fun begins. After 3 tune-up games (yes, we’re counting ECU as a tune-up), the Dukes finally get CAA play started this weekend with a home game agains the Maine Black Bears. It’s a team that has given JMU fits in the past, and should provide the toughest test of this season thus far.

We want to know how you think the game will play out. Leave a comment below with your prediction. The person who comes closest to nailing it (winner & score), will get to write a guest post. And if we have a tie, like we did last week, we’ll come up with some sort of fair tie-breaker. Just trust us. Pretty simple, right? Now give us your prediction and Go Dukes!

    JMU in a “struggle” this weekend.

    We’ll win by 20+ (too close from comfort right?!) and the game will give the “mob” enough to complain about Sunday morning.

    Going with my standard pick:

    JMU: Yes
    Maine: No

  14. Tripp / Sep 20 2017

    JMU 42 – Maine 17

    Dukes pull away in the 2nd half and a late TD from Maine makes it look closer than it was.

    The LOBSTER will win the food race because a generous alumni has shipped down hundreds of pounds of Lobster meat and we all will enjoy $2 Lobster Rolls in the 4th Quarter!

    45-17 JMU wins

  30. Nick / Sep 20 2017

    JMU – 38-13

    Dukes only have a 10 point lead at halftime but wear out the Black Bears in the second half.

  31. Ken / Sep 20 2017

    27 – 13 Dukes. Week’s emotional toll causes slow start.

  35. zac / Sep 21 2017

    Maine 10

  36. Brian / Sep 21 2017

    I don’t think we have played a defense yet. ECU underestimated our defensive backfield and the ability of our coaches to prepare same group for one on one matchups. The did not even prepare to have to run the ball.
    the next two games were what one would expect except when they stacked the box–we couldn’t run. Maine will provide a challenge that we have yet to experience. Their defense is the best we have faced so far. i predict a low scoring game.

    Don’t hate me coach H. but our team needs a shock and i think they will get one here: Dukes win but only 17-3.
