BCMoore computer model prediction: A-P by 15

A-P head coach Alex Pollock: “There’s not a lot of familiarity there at all,” Pollock said. “They’re offensively very multiple. They’ll throw a million different formations at you, and they like to air it out more than any team we’ve faced this year. Not the biggest team defensively, but they’ll do a lot of movement and blitzing on the front end to confuse us. It’ll be a heck of a challenge for us, the guys will be challenged both mentally and physically. We’re looking forward to Friday.”
