Another early week and I’ll go with ULL over Ark St tonight. I’ll return during the weekend. Vote in the “Must see poll” choices below.
First place ULL‘s rushing game- Harris (105 yards, 2TDs & McGuire 110 yards) carried the Cajuns to a 23-7 win over Ark St. I didn’t vote for TX St/SBama( 33-31) in my poll, but it was a doozy. Four late FGs by Dann of UTSA overcame another solid day by Metheny of USA. Troy edged WKU and ULM crushed Ga St.
Maybe I should’ve had Marshall/MTSU as my CUSA game in the poll. Kilgore’s stat line was a little better than Cato’s and barely enough for the MTSU 51-49 win in the final seconds.
Tulane’s Green Wave D held Tulsa scoreless in the second half for a 14-7 win but Rice blew out UTEP to stat tied with Tulane atop the West. NTex, UTSA, & La Tech won easily over , respectively USM, UAB, & FIU. FAU was crushed by Auburn in OOC play. Idle ECU sits atop the East
I’d be in the money if I were rewarded for picking close must see games: Toledo’s Terrance Owens threw for three touchdowns, including the game-winner with 1:22 remaining in a 25-22 win over Bowling Green. W.Michigan’s QB Terrel, who caught Brady fever, in Foxboro tossed four touchdowns including a 54-yard scoring strike to Corey Davis with five minutes remaining to give visiting Western Michigan a 31-30 victory over UMass. Ball ST, Ohio, Buffalo, and NIU defeated, respectively, Akron, MIami O, Kent St, & E.Mich. In conference standings Buffalo (4-0) leads the MAC East WHILE Ball St (5-0) & NIU (4-0) sit atop the West.
How about those huge number Jordan Lynch , NIU’s QB keep posting?
