Huntsville’s playoff chances are sinking fast.  UAH hasn’t won a game in regulation since December, and their three wins since Thanksgiving are against Ferris State and Northern Michigan (2x).  The Chargers are all aboard the struggle bus.

Fairbanks is in better shape, as they have eight games remaining, a mark matched only by Alaska-Anchorage and Northern Michigan, the two bottom teams in the league.  UAH can pass the Nanooks with a good weekend, but I’m having a hard time seeing that be reality.
