Week 3 BAFA Uni Predictions

Our predictions may have moved, but the interesting picks still remain. Better late than never, our week three predictions find their way onto our blog which means one thing, and one thing only. It's time to sit back, enjoy a nice beverage, and read our writers picks!


Edinburgh Napier Knights vs. Glasgow Tigers

After their narrow loss to the UWS Pyros, the Knights found themselves on the wrong end of a 56-0 mauling at the hands of the Stirling Clansmen. Sitting in the penultimate spot in the Saltire conference with an 0-2 ranking, Napier will be hoping their team can pull together and record their first win of the season.
Talk about an up and down start to the season! After their 100 burger mauling against the Clansmen, the Tigers came back to defeat the Edinburgh Predators 21-14 in OT to record their first win of the season. With the confidence from last weekend’s victory now installed in the team, the Tigers should be on for their second win of the season.

This will be a tight one. Tigers by 10.

Edinburgh Predators vs. UWS Pyros

After going 5-3 last season, many people may be surprised by the Predators 0-2 start to the season. Like the two teams on the previous prediction, the Predators have been on the receiving end of a Stirling hammering despite the season only being a few weeks old. If the Predators are going to save their season, they’ll need a big performance this weekend to overcome the uneaten UWS Pyros.

It’s not very often that the Pyros can say they’re undefeated, so we’ll give them their moment in the sun. With one win this season, the Pyros have equalled their total from the previous season, and by the looks of things, could improve on that record. However, we doubt they’ll be leaving Edinburgh with the win this weekend.

Predators to regain their form and win by 21

Willy Tee Week 3 Predictions

Argh! You guys are making this tough for me this year!! 

As conferences are getting more competitive, and offseason losses have their inevitable effect: I’ll admit, I’m starting to look pretty sloppy in terms of prediction accuracy. 

Still, when it comes down to it, we really should be consider it a GOOD thing that only a few match ups every week are the 50+ - 0 blowouts that have apparently become an intrinsic component of this single-tier structure, and that more and more often we’re finding young programs able to displace and disgrace their older counterparts, and rookie teams are coming into their conferences and being immediately competitive. 

Week 3, and hopefully we’ll see some big names finally get themselves onto the field: otherwise we’re going to see a number of teams with near half their seasons decided before others get theirs underway!! 

Ah well, here goes nothing:
