Mr. MAC Maintains His Accuracy Rate in Week Five Predictions

Great King's Defensive Play for an Incomplete pass (A Game of the Week Photo)
Mr. MAC had another good week with his picks even though he picked an upset that didn't quite pan out. Below are the winners and the losing pick. Mr. MAC is now 12-3 for an 80% accuracy rate.

Albright at King's
Mr. MAC SAYS Albright 30 - Kings 21.
ACTUAL SCORE Albright 34 - Kings 31.
It was a heart breaker for King's again this week as they lose the game in the last minute of play (Last week King's lost to Lycoming with 43 seconds on the clock). And it was a heart stopper for Albright as they win for the second time in two weeks by a field goal. (Last week they beat Widener 9-7 with a field goal at 3 seconds on the clock.

DelVal at FDU-FlorhamMr. MAC SAYS DelVal 35 - FDU-Florham 10
ACTUAL SCORE DelVal 60 - FDU-Florham 7
Delaware Valley University simply rolled over FDU-Florham Friday evening. The 10th ranked team in the nation showed their muscle in all areas of the game. Scoring by the run, pass and special teams plaus using a great defense that shut down the Devils all day. And the Aggies scored fast and in bunches, FDU Florham is just not that competitive right now against the top feeders in the MAC.

Wilkes at Lycoming
Mr. MAC SAYS Lycoming 41 - Wilkes 10
ACTUAL SCORE Lycoming 34 - Wilkes 7
Wilkes is not he same football team as last year as head coach told us there starting quarterback is out with an injury. If you don't have an experienced quarterback, you surely stuggle. Just ask Lycoming. The Warriors were using a different quarterback esentially every other series for a while until Chase Williams finally took control of the team's offense.

Lebanon Valley at Widener
Mr. MAC SAYS Lebanon Valley 24 - Widener 21
ACTUAL SCORE Widener 28 - Lebanon Valley 20
I almost called this one as Lebanon Valley gave Widener a good run for their money. Widener lead at halftime by a 14-3 score. The third quarter got interesting as the Dutchman put the score to 21-17 in favor of the Pride. Widener ended the quarter with their fourth touchdown and Lebanon Valley could only salvage a field goal. I almost called this game, but the Dutchman just didn't have the strength to finish the upset.

Misericordia at Stevenson
Mr. MAC SAYS Stevenson 32 - Misericordia 13
ACTUAL SCORE Stevenson 65 - Misericordia 7
Although I picked a winner on this game, I thought Misericordia would be very competitive based on their recent performance. Well, following the stats does not over take raw emotions as it is clear Stevenson relieved their frustrations after the DelVal loss. Misericordia will get a better test next week against King's, a cross town rival. Stevenson and Lebanon Valley will get Week Six off.
