Arizona @ UTEP (no upset here)
Coastal Carolina @ UAB
North Carolina @ Old Dominion
North Texas @ Iowa
Middle Tennessee @ Minnesota
North Carolina A&T @ Charlotte
Bethune-Cookman @ Florida Atlantic
Kent State @ Marshall
Southern Miss @ Louisiana-Monroe (ULM at home and USM only favored by a TD makes this a reasonable upset pick)
Louisiana Tech @ WKU (upset pick number 2)
Rice @ Houston (upset pick number 3 and the biggest upset of the 3 on the hunch that Rice is better than we all thought.)
Southern @ UTSA

Rice over Houston?

I think you need to lay off the Rhinelander for a couple of weeks.

If you're right the z (score) value of this pick alone should carry you for the rest of the season.

(I haven't been in Wisconsin in over twenty-five years, but back then the deposit for the Rhinelander case and the bottles was more than the cost of the beer (and rightfully so).)

If you're ever back up here try Spotted Cow. Big upgrade for beer.

As for Rice over Houston, maybe one too many Spotted Cows but I just have this feeling. Could be indigestion too, I suppose.

Ok Dawgxas, it appears you've had a stroke or did you have a momentary attack of dyslexia?
