This contest is shaping up to be a blowout: Providence has themselves a killer kicker this season, having drained 47% of their shots per game. It's a different story for Brown , though, as they've only drained 41.6% of theirs this season. Given Providence's sizeable advantage in that area, Brown will need to find a way to close that gap.
