CAA Preview Week 10: Moving week

What to watch for around the CAA conference.

Gregory Shamus

With Villanova traveling to JMU, it's last-chance saloon for the Wildcats if they hope to keep their at-large Playoff chances alive. There are two other games with serious playoff implications as well. The middle of the table will have some serious shaking up after this weekend with places 2-7 all squaring off against one another.

Can't wait!

Saturday, November 2nd

Stony Brook (3-4, 1-3 CAA) vs. Maine (7-1, 4-0 CAA) -- 12:30 pm ET

The rough ride continued for Stony Brook last weekend as they were pummeled by UNH 31-13 at home. I honestly thought they had more fight left in them, but this looks like a lame dog at this point. Maine has a pretty easy ride home to the conference crown, with their only realistic threat the final at rivals New Hampshire.

New Hampshire (4-3, 3-1 CAA) vs. William & Mary (5-3, 2-2 CAA) -- 1:30 pm ET

Bill & Mary had a classic Tribe win last week, taking out James Madison 17-7. I could see them repeating that exact feat this week again in the cozy confines of Zable Stadium. UNH still has a ton to play for as they're very much still in the conference title race. Should be a great game.

Rhode Island (3-6, 2-4 CAA) vs. Old Dominion (5-3) -- 2:00 pm ET

I was really looking for Rhody to take it to the Hens last week, but the exact opposite happens. They're clearly running out of steam what with the reduced scholarships and all the injuries they've accumulated. Former friends ODU have done exactly what is expected of them, and nothing more. They're beating the FCS teams and losing to the FBS teams in their transition year.

Albany (1-7, 0-4 CAA) vs. Richmond (2-6, 0-4 CAA) -- 4:00 pm ET

Alternately known as this year's Toilet Bowl, the loser will likely go without a win in the conference. I'm taking bets all week.

Delaware (6-2, 3-1 CAA) vs. Towson (8-1, 4-1 CAA) -- 7:00 pm ET

Another good game...on paper. Seriously, Delaware? Terrance West will probably sacrifice a live chicken Pedro Cerrano-style before the game.
