I said I wouldn't be able to pull double duty every week with the PSAC and MEC, but here I am previewing the upcoming action for the third week in a row. Why? Because there is some really exciting stuff going on around the league. Some it good, some of it not so god, and some of it just downright puzzling. Here are a few random notes.

Week three marks the last round of non-divisional games until Championship weekend. Last week, all games were hosted by West division schools. That will be reversed in week 11 when all games will be on East campuses. This weekend, we have a mixture with four in the East and four in the West.
