Hurrying up for a Tuesday Sunbelt game which also makes my list.
SunBelt Ga Southern is 4-0 in conference play but Ark St and ULL are also undefeated (2-0). Ark St has a decent rushing game led by Gordon, Knighten(QB) and White. McGuire, Broadway(QB), and Harris will get the better of the ground warfare . ULL 25 Ark St 19
MAC- Again, I’ll take the Minutemen led by Frohnappel (2483 yards, 18TDs, 6 ints) in an aerial invasion of Toledo. UMass 35 Toledo 26
CUSA: FAU has re-gained some swagger and look for Jay Warren averaging 5 yards a carry to keep the Owls close at Marshall, Cato’s arm and Devan’s legs will outlast them . Marshall 30 FAU 27 CUSA will get my poll vote this week.
CUSA: It’s hard to ignore the Thundering Herd O led by Cato and Devan J, and they ‘ll come out a winner in a close one against the rushing attack of MTSU led by Whatley & Parker.
SunBelt- Tough week for a good matchup so I figure the NM St Aggies led by Mr Rogers will steal a close one at Troy
MAC: After getting crushed by Marshall, Akron upset Pitt and zipped by E.Mich. They ‘ll survive Miami (Ohio) by a FG .

Akron had a tough time before holding off Miami (Ohio) 29-19 in the closest game of the three. Herd crushed MTSU so I was barely correct. And I never foresaw Burks gaining a 176 yard on 10 carries as Troy pulled away from NM St in the 4Q.
I picked USTA as my CUSA darkhorse, but I’m leaning toward FAU as the season progresses. I’m going with FAU in a home nail-biter W over USTA . Keep your eyes on the QBs Passing: USTA-Carter – 44-72, 400 yds, 1 td. FAU Johnson – 35-60, 478 yds, 4 td
Another Glass Bowl MAC game: The passing of CMU’s QB Rush – 62-102, 706 yds, 4 tds will be enough for a W @Toledo
SunBelt: Troy U will not recover from the UGA drubbing to win at ULM led by the passing of Thomas – 63-115, 650 yds, 2 ts
Sept 28 Post game review:
2 out of 3 ain’t bad: ULM edged Troy thanks to it’s D creating turnovers amd Manton, thier kicker.. FAUQB Johnson tossed the winning TD with 20 seconds remaining for the W. Toledo QB Woodside was the difference and gave me my wrong selection in the Rockets 42-28 W. Staying in the MAC, how about Akron’d holding Pitt (ACC) to 10 points in a W.
The N. Mex St Aggies (2-1, 1-0 Sun Belt)beat Ga St in their return to the SunBelt, but I’m intrigued by their intra-state matchup against the New Mexico Lobos(0-2, 0-0 MW) who have to be expecting more from Coach Bob Davie. Lobos are on the road with a limited offense led by Gautsche – 14 car, 184 yds, 2 tds. Davie will coax his sqaud into a final minute squeaker W. The passing of Aggies QB Rogers – 65-111, 723 yds, 7 tds will keep this one close
Rice(0-2, 0-0 C-USA) Owls will hang onto their season and beat the ODU (2-1, 0-0 C-USA newbies ) in a battle of passers: ODU- Heinicke – 81-119, 742 yds, 5 tds Rice-Jackson – 34-56, 375 yds, 2 tds
MAC:Ground game battle as Ball St led by Edwards – 63 car, 265 yds, 2 tds visits Toledo led by Hunt – 47 car, 385 yds, 6 tds. Hoe team Rockets will shatter the Card in the Glass Bowl game
Sept 21 brief review 2 out of 3 ain’t bad
Heinicke ( 430 yards, 5 TDs) was a major factor in the ODU upset road win.
