The skinny: Pi­o­neers gained 261 yards on 48 run­ning plays in last year’s rout of the Leop­ards. Pi­o­neers have won the last four meet­ings. Pi­o­neer whipped Buck­nell 30-10 last week. Pi­o­neers QB Lo­gan Marchi is in his first year at SHU but has been a starter at Tem­ple and E Tenn. St. Julius Ch­est­nut scored twice last year for SHU. Leop­ards’ fresh­man Kee­gan Shoe­maker has passed for three TDs in two games – only one less than the Leop­ards had all last year. Leop­ard o-line has al­lowed 10 sacks this year, must do bet­ter to pro­tect Shoe­maker. Leop­ard de­fense has al­lowed an av­er­age of 239 ypg. Leop­ards have only one non-con­fer­ence win in John Garrett’s third year as head coach.

Paul Rein­hard’s pick: Sa­cred Heart 34-17.
