* Inside scoop: If the transitive property was true in sports, fans should be expecting a blowout by Overland in this game, but that’s not the case. Even though Overland only lost to Fairview, which ran over Poudre, 42-7, by three points, the Trailblazers and Impalas match up well.
It doesn’t hurt that Poudre is riding an emotional high from its first win of the season against Boulder last week, either.
The Impalas seem to have found their quarterback with Cody Limmer, who passed for 214 yards and three touchdowns last week and the secondary, led by Justin Moreng, is playing well. This might not be a victory for Poudre against an efficient option attack from Overland, but expect to see the Impalas keep turning the corner toward becoming a consistent program.
