"No. 20 Maine at Albany. It’s tempting to write off Albany after their 44-7 drubbing at the hands of UMass last week. But head coach Bob Ford won’t let his 0-2 Great Danes get down as they face a shaky 2-0 Maine team that still needs to hit its stride. A multi-faceted running game consisting of quarterback Andrew Smith and running backs David McCarty and Justin Gannon (293 yards, 4 touchdowns) are generating the yards, Albany is a tough team that can take opponents off guard if they can play their game.
Can Maine force them out of it? It’s hard to say. In many ways, Maine’s two-quarterback, multi-facted run game is an awful lot like Albany’s, with quarterback Mike Brusko (103 yards, 2 touchdowns) and running back Derek Session (238 yards, 2 touchdowns). But it’s the fact that Jared Turcotte is still missing - the “you’ve got to stop him” back that is hurting the Black Bear offense - that will cause Albany to come out on top.
