McNeese vs. Houston Christian Prediction
I’m leaning towards Houston Christian here. McNeese is obviously the better team and they’ve been the best team in the conference up to this point. However, Houston Christian’s had a tendency all year long, of hanging around the better teams that they’ve gone up against and I think this game could be no different. I think this is just a case of too many points so I’ll take the truckload of points with Houston Christian here.
