My predictions:
West
1. La Tech 10-2 (7-1)
Wins: NSU, Miss St, USA, UAB, Southern Miss, Rice, UNT, FAU, UTEP, UTSA
Losses: WKU, S Carolina

2. UTSA 8-4 (6-2)
Wins: Southern, Texas State, Southern Miss, UNT, Rice, UTEP, UAB, Marshall
Losses: Houston, Baylor, FIU, La Tech

I like your prediction, but FIU? I don't think UTSA loses to them. I'm thinking UTSA and Latech will go neck and neck with each other with the last game deciding who wins the West. Here hoping Latechs kryptonite southern miss, takes out Latech mid season so UTSA has some breathing room.

I admit FIU was kind of cheeky, but I had trouble thinking UTSA wouldn't have a conference loss coming in to Ruston. I went with FIU since it's UTSA's first trip outside of Texas.

If we do lose a conference game before our meeting with you guys, I think it'll be one of the three games prior to FIU because we face North Texas, Rice, and UTEP in the 3 weeks prior to our trip to Florida, and have to face all three of them after their bye weeks. Two of them (UNT and UTEP) will be on the road, and those would be the most likely candidates for upsets. Marshall might be a tough one also if they're improved, but I'd like to think we'll take care of business in our last home game of the season.

We do if this guy wants his article/blog read.

He actually did work on it so it's no worse than what everyone else posted in the other thread. He just created a new one so you'd look at his link.

If there's a loss of the three, I'm thinking UNT. A rested Rice and UTEP shouldn't be a problem, even playing away. But a rested UNT can cause some attention.

They "shouldn't" have been a problem last year either, but we played Rice after their bye last year and squeaked out a narrow 14-13 win that easily could've been a loss if not for their 2 missed field goals. Mind you, Rice was a mere 3-9 team last year and also had more first downs and more yards than we did in that game.

As for UTEP, they finished 4-8 last year and actually did beat us in overtime at our own Alamodome, also after a bye for them.

We struggle against teams after their bye weeks, and this will be the 2nd straight year we're facing both Rice and UTEP after their byes, so I'm not overlooking anyone.

Just curious, why do you think losing to FIU is near impossible?

I never said losing to FIU is near impossible, nor did I imply it anywhere in my comment. All my comment was meant to convey was that I think we're more likely to lose one of the 3 games I mentioned above.

No worries, I know our only game was a defensive struggle in the alamadome. Your D was relentless. I think our O will not be as predictable as Ron Turner's O was. Plus I'm hoping y'all are as jinxed in the state of Florida as UTEP 02-13-banana
