It appears to be a relatively easy slate of games to pick this week; With no marquee matchups to highlight, I figured I’d take a week off.
But I still wanted to throw out my predictions and offer a look at some out-of-conference games you should be keeping an eye on.
So here’s my predicted winners in this week’s MIAA games.
Central Missouri at Northeastern State
Washburn at Central Oklahoma
Missouri Southern at Lindenwood
And everyone thought I was crazy for having Pittsburg State atop my TANQB ratings early in the season. I was just ahead of the game.

There’s some good matchups this week in MIAA football. I think 5 of the 6 games really could go either way, with Northwest Missouri being the only HUGE favorite.
