While the Rockets will be the home team they will more than likely be the underdog in this contest. They stand a chance and the game should be fun to watch, but they will need to limit the mistakes and manage the clock to keep the high flying Tigers in check.
I will be in attendance and can't wait to see this game! Matt Campbell and company have an opportunity to prove what their Rockets are made of and why the MAC is up and coming against the other conferences.
The Rockets are going under the radar this offseason. They very quietly only lost nine seniors last season, and are already making a splash in recruiting for the 2015 season.
On paper BGSU, and NIU may look like the teams to beat, but don't be surprised if the Rockets are at the top by season's end.
