Halftime Report

Canisius and the Saints have shown up to the game, but their offenses sure haven't. Sitting on a score of 36-28, Canisius has looked like the better team, but there's still one more half to play. They took a big hit to their ego last Friday, so a victory here would be a pleasant pick-me-up.

If Canisius keeps playing like this, they'll bump their record up to 10-15 in no time. On the other hand, Siena will have to make due with a 4-22 record unless they turn things around (and fast).
