Gryphons head to London to face the Mustangs at 1pm Saturday. Given that its Thanksgiving weekend I don’t expect there will be much of a crowd. We will be taking on a team that is tops in OUA and ranked #2 nationally. The game will be broadcast on-line if you can’t make it to London. Link: http://www.ssncanada.ca/game/2930/
Gryphons.ca has a preview of the game here. It confirms in writing what I was already assuming – Jazz Lindsey will start again at QB. It also includes a good photo of the O-Line from the HC game.
And from the University Rush blog this preview:
Guelph @ Western
This game is a must win for Guelph, if they have any playoff aspirations. First year Gryphon pivot Jazz Lindsey looked decent last week in his first ever start, but he made some rookie mistakes against Windsor. He can’t afford to turn the ball over against a powerful Mustang squad on Saturday.
Western will be without starting quarterback Donnie Marshall in this one. Ben Rossong will get the call, he threw for 175 yards in relief of Marshall after he left the game with an ankle injury last week. Expect Rossong to rely on the nation’s best rushing attack — Western has averaged a mind boggling 335 yards on the ground per game this year — to literally run over the Gryphons.
Western 43 Guelph 17
That blogs complete OUA Week 6 game predictions are here.
If Guelph is to have a chance in this game all of our units will have to be outstanding – O, D & ST. We could really use some scoring from our defence and special teams. Our D has produced lots of turnovers this season but has yet to score. As well as our punt & kick return units have done I’m surprised we haven’t had more than one return TD.
