The South Dakota Coyotes are only winning this season. Their first game to their latest, they have only won each game, often with a very comfortable margin. With a 6-0 overall score and a 3-0 score in their division, the team is a formidable opponent for any other college football team of this rank out there. Their opponents this game are the Illinois State Redbirds. The Redbirds are 4-2 so far in the season. They have won 2 and lost 1 in the division.
South Dakota is high on confidence and positivity. We can see why. They have been defeating all their opponents with a very comfortable margin. 77-7 against the Drake Bulldogs, 35-27 against the Bowling Green Falcons, 45-7 against the North Dakota Fighting Hawks, 38-33 against the Western Illinois Leathernecks, 31-28 against the Youngstown State Penguins, and most recently 56-6 against the Indiana State Sycamores.
There are good chances that the team will continue its shutting down spree and win this game against the Redbirds.
Illinois State has it tough when they are up against a 6-0 team like South Dakota. The Redbirds don’t have what it takes to defeat the Coyotes. One of the most important things they want to take care of is not letting the South Dakota score advance too much. If there’s no huge margin, the game can be a bit challenging. And who knows, by some twist of fate, the Redbirds might actually win.
The Redbirds are on a two-game losing streak and want to get out of there direly. This is an opportunity, but not a good one. However, the team will do all it can to avoid a three-game losing streak.
The Redbirds have been scoring not more than 16 in the past two games. If the trend continues and the opponents are again uncontrollably larger, it will be another defeat.
