Mid majors sneak peek for week 7

CUSA- Tulane face ECU in a battle of division leaders. Will Nick Montana help the Green Wave ascend?

MAC-  Buffalo’s high flying offnese catches my interest as they battle a weak W. Mich squad. Alex Neutz, Buffalo’s star WR, has 32 receptions for 518 yards and five TDs

Sunbelt: Only three games scheduled so I’ll pick ULM/UTSA as the game to watch.

CUSA

The CUSA game I voted for was quite a barnburner, but it was Tulane defensive TD and 6 FGs from Santos that saved the day in 1a 36-33 win. Devin Powell (23-39-224-1) did a solid job replacing Montana who was a late scratch as the Wave were spared OT by a missed ECU FG with three seconds to go. ECU’s loss  allowed Marshall who edged FAU to   stand alone atop  CUSA East. Rice beat UTSA to stay even with Tulane in the West. UAB edged FIU, Tulsa beat UTEP , and NTex walloped MTSU.

MAC

Neutz only had two receptions for nine yards, but one was for a TD as Joe Licata of Buffalo found other targets in  their 33-0 shutout of W.Mich.  Bowling Green took it to Miss ST (SEC) but came up one point short. Army ‘s (Independent) 50-25 win over EMI may be the final straw in in Ron English  abysmal tenure there. Back to conference play: C.Mich upset Ohio while UMass, NIU,  & Ball St won close games over respectively,  Miami of Ohio, Akron, & Kent St.

Sunbelt

Corey Robinson late passing TD for Troy spoiled GA St best game of the season for 35-28 win. ULM scored 2 DTD to outlast TX St. Ark St smashed the Vandals of Idaho(Independent) in an OOC game.

 

A side note on G ST. They’re in a transitional status this season and not bowl eligible. They play conference games but  don’t build a conference record.
