Can the Bulldogs pull out the massive road upset on the road against a solid Bulldogs team?
The Citadel Bulldogs
The Citadel Bulldogs are coming off a 35-28 loss to the Elon Phoenix on Saturday. Citadel had a shot to tie the game in the fourth quarter but turned the ball over on downs around midfield with about a minute to go.
Brandon Rainey had only 69 passing yards to go along with a touchdown, and an interception. Rainey added 41 yards and three rushing touchdowns.
Clay Harris led the running game with 44 yards and a touchdown. Raleigh Webb had 30 receiving yards and a touchdown. The Bulldogs defense did struggle to contain the Phoenix’ rush attack which went for 255 yards on the day. Jaylan Thomas killed the Bulldogs with 135 yards and two touchdowns.
The Bulldogs were out-gained 481-225 in total yards. Citadel must improve their defense as they allowed 461 total yards in week one.

It was a strange game offensively for the Yellow Jackets as signal-caller Lucas Johnson had 45 passing yards and an interception. Johnson and James Graham have had turns under center this season.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Pick: The Citadel +35
The Yellow Jackets have struggled to find the right piece at quarterback between Johnson and Graham. Citadel’s situation isn’t much better but I think they can keep it within this big number.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: The Citadel +35
I expect the Yellow Jackets to take care of business as Mason will have a good game on the ground. Look for the Citadel to just cover the big spread here.
