First let me just say I'm on a terrible run and it's still November which has always been a bad month for me. Having said that I love this game. You talk about a huge step up in class. G. Mason is 4-3 with non of those games being true away games. Using KenPom ratings they rank #212 and their schedule strength is #281. The only single digit ranked team they have played is #66 Houston and lost 93-56 on a neutral floor.
N. Iowa is ranked #69 with a schedule strength of #4. They are 3-2 with both losses coming against #9 Xavier. They have neutral court wins against #91 Arizona St 82-63 and #68 Oklahoma 73-67 OT. This will be UNI's first home game against a DI team. Their only other home game was against non DI Coe where they won 74-37. I look for this one to be a rout. The Patriots haven't seen anything close to the defensive pressure they'll run into in this game. I would be surprised if they scored much more than 50 in this one. The most points UNI has given up this year against FAR better competition is 67.
