Yes/No: MSU-Mankato in Top Two at NSIC?

This Saturday, Minnesota State - Moorhead will host the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) cross country conference meet. The women's race will be contested at 11:00 A.M. and the men's will follow at noon.

Augustana will go into the meet as the favorite in both the men's and women's race. The Vikings swept the NSIC last year and are the highest ranked teams in the conference.

They are not a sure win, however, as they will face numerous challenges to the crown this year. One such challenger, Minnesota State - Mankato, looks to be one of the top teams on the men's side and will be the focus of this week's question ...

Yes/No: Will Minnesota State - Mankato men's team finish in the top two at the NSIC Championship on Saturday?

Minnesota State - Mankato men finished third in the NSIC in 2010, finishing one point behind UMD. The Mavericks are currently ranked fifth in the Cental Region and thirteenth in the nation. Other ranked NSIC men's teams include Augustana, which is fourth in the region and eighth in the nation, and Winona State at tenth in the region.

To play our game, simply type "yes" or "no" into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us at DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before 11:00 A.M. CDT, Saturday, October 22nd. Please put your answers in the subject line of the e-mail and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail. We will offer our usual bonus for participants making their 2011 debut in Yes/No - a correct answer will be worth two points for anyone who has not played yet this year.

My answer: Yes

Last week's question was: Will Alyssa Sybilrud finish in the top ten individually at the Tori Neubauer Invitational on Saturday? The answer was yes. Sybilrud finished eighth - her third consecutive year in the top ten at the Tori Neubauer Invitational. Twenty-eight contestants answered correctly this week. Mike Henderson and Rachel Karel are tied for first with twenty-four points.
