Mid majors week 10 starts Thursday

Thursday games in the SunBelt and CUSA, and the MAC has a short slate, but I’m going with Rice/NTex option. Rice is average 234 rushing yards a game, and NTex is an improving program. Updates through the weekend. It’s Kent St (not Toledo)/Akron. The ZipFlash special.

CUSA

Nov 1 : NTex D did some scoring in a big conference win (28-16) that knocked Rice out of first in the West. Tulane can gain ground with a win at FAU , a team reeling from Carl Pelini’s resignation :

Earlier this week Florida Atlantic coach Carl Pelini, Bo’s brother, and defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis both resigned from their positions over what the school called “illegal drug use.”     

Brian Wright is the interim HC.  Jaquez Johnson rushed for 114 yards and 2TDs in a stunning  FAU  win over Tulane which keeps the West wide open with a 3-way tie (Tulane, Rice, NTex). ECU & Marshall , the East leaders, won easily over , respectively, USM & FIU.  UTSA  defeated Tulsa and MTSU  edged UAB in  what turned out to be the must-see game of the week. UTEP hung with TAMU for a quarter in an OOC loss

Sunbelt

Kolton Browning threw for 354 yards and five touchdowns and ran for a score  in ULM‘s 49-37 road win at Troy.  Ark St was a close second in the must-see contest edging S.Bama, and WKU thumped Ga St in other conference games.  TX St and ULL   earned easy OOC wins over, respectively Idaho and N.Mex St

 

MAC

Akron beat Kent St and Toledo slammed E.Mich, but Lynch  and NIU  rolled over UMass and are on a path to bust the BCS again.
Passing: J. Lynch (NIU) – 160 YDS, 1 TD
Rushing: J. Lynch (NIU) – 17 CAR, 119 YDS, 4 TD
