Tough loss last week. Time to dust ourselves off and get back on track.
Last Week: 8-4
Season to Date: 75-33
Cincinnati (6-1) at SMU (3-4)
Last Saturday was a humbling experience for the Bearcats. Coach Luke Fickell struck just the right note in his post-game press conference. This team is going to learn from this loss and make its next five opponents pay for it. SMU is the first on the list.
Final Score: Cincinnati 32 SMU 24
The Rest of the AAC
UMass (2-6) at UConn (1-6)
Where was I? I was at home.
Final Score: UMass 35 UConn 24
South Florida (7-0) at Houston (6-1)
USF has been flirting with disaster for weeks. Houston’s high powered offense, led by the rapidly improving D’Eriq King, will be just the torpedo to sink USF’s ship.
Final Score: Houston 38 South Florida 31
Tulane (2-5) at Tulsa (1-6)
Tulane runs the option well. It will start translating into wins this week against a rather undermanned Tulsa team.
Final Score: Tulane 37 Tulsa 17
Notre Dame (7-0) vs. Navy (2-5)
Notre Dame signal caller Ian Book makes some atrocious decisions. It will bite the Irish on the bippy at some point this season. Not this week though. Navy is bad for the first time in years.
Final Score: Notre Dame 62 Navy 14
The Rest of the Country
Florida (6-1) vs. Georgia (6-1)
Vince McMahon has never watched Georgia Championship Wrestling or Championship Wrestling from Florida. I have watched both shows. Many times.
Final Score: Georgia 17 Florida 14
Iowa (6-1) vs. Penn State (5-2)
I moved out west to grow up with the country. I moved out west to win the Western States Heritage Belt but NWA phased it out and there was no title left for Larry Zybysko to hold.
Final Score: Iowa 24 Penn State 7
