Mr. MAC has a perfect week of predictions but is "Out-of Touch" in one.

It was a perfect week for my predictions but the "Game of the Week" prediction was so wrong score wise. Delaware Valley showed that they have one of the best teams in the nation. And they shut down No. 24 Albright a couple times inside their 10 yard line that could have changed the outcome of this matchup. Anyway, I still was perfect for the week.

King's at Misericordia
Mr. MAC SAYS King's 41 - Misericordia 35
ACTUAL SCORE King's 63 - Misericordia 37
King's combination of QB Zach Whitehead to Tyler Marroni generated a career performance  for Marroni to help King’s have a record-breaking day in it's 63-37 road win over Misericordia. Marroni equaled a career-high 10 catches for a career-best 234 yards receiving and three touchdowns. The senior scored on touchdown catches of 10, 80 and 41 yards, respectively. Seven of Marroni’s receptions resulted in first downs with three on third down conversions. Marroni’s efforts helped King’s set program records for points scored in a one game (63) and total yards in one game (655). I did think Miseriordia would be able to score five times against King's because of the King's defense. They have been giving up close to 40 points per game recently. NEXT GAMES: King's next game is Conference leader Delaware Valley in Doylestown, PA. It is the Aggies Homecoming and Family Weekend. Misericordia has a bye week. Read more about the King's win.

FDU-Florham at Lycoming
Mr. MAC SAYS Lycoming 48 - FDU-Florham 14.
ACTUAL SCORE Lycoming 48 - FDU-Florham
I almost nailed this score perfectly. I would love to do that this season. Lycoming is improving week after week after they settle on their Senior QB Chase William. Four different Warriors (senior Sam Dressler, junior Brock Zollicoffer and sophomores Dante Gipson and Keith Batkowski) scored rushing touchdowns against FDU-Florham. NEXT GAMES: Lycoming plays at Widener while FDU-Florham has the week off.  Read more about the Lycoming win.

Widener at Wilkes
Mr. MAC SAYS Widener 34 - Wilkes 14
ACTUAL SCORE Widener 30 - Wilkes 7
Widener had no trouble with the Colonels who are really struggling offensively. And the Pride used turnovers to put this game away. Jordan Powell became the first Widener player with two interceptions in a game since Lowery did it against Albright on Oct. 29, 2016. He also moved into third place on the Widener single-season list with 136 interception return yards. NEXT GAMES: Widener hosts Lycoming and Wilkes has a bye week.  Read more about the Widener win.

Featured "Game of the Week"
DelVal Vs Albright
Mr. MAC SAYS believes it will be DelVal 31 - Albright 30 in OT
ACTUAL SCORE DelVal 41 - Albright 6 
The Aggies defense played outstanding to stifle the Lions of Reading, PA. Albright tried to get in the game two times in the first half but the DelVal top ranked defense had other ideas. I really missed this score thinking it was going to OT. The OT for me must mean "Out-of Touch!" Well the good news for me was a win on my side of the ledger. The Aggies have talent and many are not seniors. So DelVal has been able to what we call "Reload" good players each year. They are building a legacy there and their shits with proclaim "Family" are an accurate picture of the atmosphere in Doylestown. Offensively, defensively and special teams were so solid in this win which keeps the DelVal Aggies on their goal of a MAC Championship. The Aggies have defeated league powerhouses Stevenson and Albright. It is coming down to the final game of the season as long as DelVal or Widener don't stumble. NEXT GAMES: DelVal is at homes verses King's and Albright has the week off. Read more about the DelVal win.
