Holy Cross (0-2) at Northwest (2-0)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Holy Cross’ Josh Watters (0-2, 1st year); Northwest’s Carl Majer (35-23, 6th year)
Last Meeting: Northwest 41-0 in 2012
All-Time Series: Northwest leads 3-0
Quick Fact: Holy Cross had just 48 yards of offense in last year’s game.
Scouting Holy Cross: The Crusaders lost their 14th in a row Saturday, falling to Holy Redeemer 44-20. There were some good signs as RB Tom Ware (78 yards) led a trio of runners with at least 60 yards on the ground. And Holy Cross led 8-6 at halftime. Moral victories no doubt, but the program needs some before it breaks into the win column. The Crusaders have allowed 101 points thus far.
Scouting Northwest: Majer is back after serving his two-game suspension and is raring to go. From afar, he said he doesn’t think his Rangers have played their best football yet. Two victories by four and five points support that theory. WR Nick Long had a pair of TD grabs in the 12-7 victory over Susquehanna last Saturday, but the offense failed to score in the second half.
What To Expect: Northwest is finally at home and should be pumped to put up some big numbers on the scoreboard tonight.
