It’s tough to take much of anything away from Troy’s win over a Carver College team that is part of the National Christian College Athletic Association, but we’re going with Butler, which has been more battle tested this season. The Bulldogs didn’t beat any fantastic teams to start off the season, but they have much more momentum with a quick start to the year, while Troy could have some issues early on against a quality opponent.
