There's pretty much no daylight between these teams. They could play 50 times and go 25-25. Bradley barely on the first go-around. UA has been stifling on defense down the stretch, so maybe that's enough to get them a 13-10 win or something.
And then the winner waits and sees if they get Moeller or Ed's.
UA played so good last night vs Gahanna. Ball control offense, good running and excellent passing and play calling. I don't think the UA QB missed any of his first 10 passes. First drive of the game took over 8 min off the clock. Gahanna's game was penalty after penalty after penalty. Everytime they created an opportunity they got penalties. First half they had a 50 yd pass to the 2 yd line. Then penalty and penalty. Ended up not scoring.
UA could have gone up 16-0 and put the game away in the third. Gahanna was punting from their own 8, UA blocked the punt and had 1st and goal on the Lions 5. Next play UA fumbled and Gahanna with a scoop and score 88 yds for a TD and a 9-7 game.
UA had 4 FGs by their freshman kicker.
This rematch with Bradley should be a great game. The first time around in week 6 was.
Bradleys D is WORLDS better than Gahanna's was, GL tried to outscore opponents and ride the back of their offense. Bradley is a very different team. Both teams play excellent D and their first game was basically a coin flip. Bradley has a few more offensive weapons than UA does so I'm leaning there. But in a defensive struggle, one or two plays can be the difference in the game. Should be a good one.
